Brycy asked me for my opinion on the competitiveness of the various teams and I frankly do not know what will happen.

If recent form is anything to go by, Aussies are a team to watch. Recently whipped NZ 20-0 in some tournament up in the islands.

..moolaa first time Oz has won that Oceania U20 Championship title as well...NZ won it the last four times....so maybe Oz rugby is'nt as dead as reported , although big problem there is getting anyone to turn up at their stadiums and watch rugby,,

For this year's U20s WC in Argentina some NZ teams are releasing their U20s players, others are not.

Chiefs are releasing 7s Commonwealth Gold medalist EteneNanai Seturo who scored a double on the weekend against the Blues...

Blues not releasing Caleb Clarke

 NZ has a deep pool of players to choose from so a difficult job for selectors ...but i think in fairness the selectors have tried  to choose a few from each region...

1. Ollie Norris (Waikato)
2. Kianu Kereru Symes – captain (Hawke’s Bay)
3. Tamaiti Williams (Canterbury)
