I heard PG hurt himself again at Canberra?

Incorrect, it was against Heads of State. And before you ask if it was an attempt from Owen to get his way onto the team, he wasn't involved.

If PG can't play I bet they pick Owen.

Also, some food for thought.. I've heard PG wasn't picked as a handler.

"At Canberra" not "against Canberra"!

Which of the HoS boys laid the smack down then?

There hasn't been much talk of late about this tournament. With only a month to go, have all the players selected shrugged their respective injuries?

Some 360 photos of the stadium have been put up on the web, it looks pretty cool. http://www.360cities.net/image/090429-0918w6000cl.

I think that they are still a bunch of busted arses...or at least Ant, Matt and Pete are. There's a training camp this weekend so surely if people aren't fit now it's time to call on those reserves??

Ant didnt play league on Monday cos of a quad strain. Dont know how serious it is. Pete said he was feeling pretty fit, feeling the best he has for a long time, almost back to 100%. Tex was playing again aftr some time off for shin splints, and looked predicatbly ridiculously quick.

Thanks Rubes.

So the Aussies have USA first up, then Taiwan to finish day 1.

Day 2 is GB then Japan.

Day 3 to finish is Canada, then a playoff.

Very exciting.  Can they repeat 2005 by knocking off the USA to make the Final against Canada?  Go Aussie.

In 2005, Australia beat Canada to then meet USA in the final.

Also Di has arrived in the country for the last 2 training camps, so everyone is on board the team now.

Rookie question: why are there only 6 teams?

My prediction: the aussies will get to the final against canada and go down...

I think canada will make it a double (plus whatever they won at worlds), Opens World Title and World Games Gold.

from what i know, the canadian team is missing Mike Grant and Andrew Lugsdin, top scorer for canada at worlds and their captain respecitvly.  Not that their team still isnt full of monstorously good players. Sam Kennedy didnt play with Furious at Worlds, but i have seen him play, he is a freak, brings down the most massive grabs, and all the rest of the guys on the team played on the gold medal winning team. US team seemed to have a pretty exhaustive try out process...and the names are pretty good. id back the US to make the final, with a shitfight between the rest (except taipei...sorry to any taipei ultimate fans out there) the rest of the way. The fact the aussies have probably played together in various capacities may be in their advantage if they can get 13 fit players out there.

The reason there are onyl 6 teams as far as i know is to do with the fact its not an ultimate tournament alone as such. Top 5 countires from worlds qualify, plus the hosts.

Would be sick if ultivillage got out there...but thats not gonna happen.

All five non-Aussie teams played at Poultry Days (I think - Ruebs will confirm) the other week, so they have the "familiarity" factor of both themselves and their opponents.
