That is final squad. Also didn't realise I copied across update bit but that was just saying RCG is out because he was named in Kangaroos squad.

Did anyone catch any of it? Addo-Carr’s combination with Munster is still fairly lethal.

I’d love to see more of that type of linked play with Coates next year.

Grant also played really well and caused all sorts of problems for the Fijian defence with his running.

He was good, but I would have given it to Grant.
