Not as tall as many of the other teams, but a lot of recognizable names.  From what I know, and have read, I filled in the positions as best as I could. 

So there is the Dingoes challenge!  Let the preparation begin

Do they add any other players to the roster from other clubs?

Or is it entirely the club team that goes to WUGC?

This is actually an important question.  As I understand it, they will have try outs for the next club season before worlds, club try outs are in early june, so will probably consist of a majority of the same team, but if Zip or someone moves to Seattle by next club season, and makes Sockeye, they will also join Sockeye at worlds.  So this team list is not necessarily the entire WUGC team, but most likely 98% correct.

I mean I have to think that at least the men's open team is pretty much picked aside from 5 or 6 spots... the mixed team is where I imagine all the tough decisions will be made. 

I suspect the selectors a looking for a team the plays well together so doesnt mean that the best players will necessarily make it. However i dont think this will be much of an issue with the guys on the list as most of em are top blokes.

Who wants to start calling some good matchups?

Obviously the Dowles have both marked up against Chase before. Matt seemed to have him in the air but perhaps Chase was a tad quicker on his toes. And of course Nord, though I noticed they often play him on defence against the other teams best handler, eg Cruickshank, etc.

Who's gonna cover Seth Wiggins? A tough job considering how he played in the final. Johhno Homles?

So many tough, quick guys on that roster...

Well, Chase primarily plays O and Nord Primarily plays D.  As I understand it, you want to stack your O so they score every time.  So, therefore, Matt and Ant will be playing O together.  This leaves someone like Jonno Holmes marking Chase.

As for Seth Wiggins, everything i have read pegs him as being their top defensive handler, so would say, hopefully, no one will ever have to mark him!   Grin

Tim Gehret, Ben Wiggins, and Sam O'Brian seem to lead their O lines handling.  The real player you want to shut down on their O line is Sammy C-K.  He is a key player downfield and will need to be stopped.  Of course, their other downfield players are solid, ie Chase, Moses, and Mike Caldwell, so maybe just stop them all.

I'm sure Mike Nield will have something to say about these guys running all over the field. I'm sure Sammy C-K is a great player, but he's never had Mikey on his hip before Smiley.

And can you imagine how confused Ben Wiggins or Tim Gehret are going to be when they find Owen Shepherd always standing where they want to run, with no idea how he got there?

It's almost make me chuckle.

Well, the Dowles may end up playing both O and D, they are mildly useful on both Smiley

I've really got to go whore my folks boardband connection so I can check out some of the Sockeye and Shazam games and check a few of these peeps out.

all this talk of match ups makes me want to travel with the team. I think anyone who is in the squad is going to have to put in some hard yards between now and August.

No pain. No gain boys.

A lot of those guys are trying out for the Open team as their first preference though, many of them will probably make the open team as well.

LOL - I only recgonised about 7 people on this list which included Pottsy, JD and Piers, who I knew were all trying out for Open team and I just figured there'd be others...

Still if Pottsy, JD and Piers were on all on the Open team as opposed to the Masters team it would make quite a significant difference to the overall strenght of the Masters team.
