"Has GAGR picked their side yet?"
GAGR’s Wallaby XXIII

Afternoon learned.

The polls have closed and the results are in.

59 wise & true GAGR faithful contributed to the poll, my thanks for your contributions – and YOUR Wallaby XXIII is listed below. Having gone through each respondents team may I suggest seven of you urgently seek psychological assistance and a further eleven nameless GAGR’s  (Yowie) owe me a written apology – yikes.

 Your GAGR Wallaby XXIII

16. Feleti Kaitu’u 28 votes (47.40%)

17. Allan Alaalatoa 26 votes (44.10%)

18. Angus Bell 42 votes (71.20%)

19 Sitaleki Timani 21 votes (35.60%)

20. Lachie Swniton tied with Fraser McReight 22 votes (37.30%) (I think Swinton gets the nod due to  flexibility – can cover 4,5,6, & 8, plus Hooper is unlikely to be benched during the match)

21. Jake Gordon 24 votes (40.70%)

22. Noah Lolesio 25 votes (42.40%)

23. Reece Hodge 28 votes (47.50%)

So there it is folks, no doubt injuries and training form will impact the final 23 and I am sure Moses & co have been keenly awaiting our list for guidance – you’re welcome Dave.

All that’s left is to say, no matter who wears the sacred gold is – ‘go you good things’.
