First it was Crocker ruled out of the RLWC, now it's Hodges!!! [rant] Just like Crocker (QLD) was replaced by Tupou (NSW) instead of Thaiday who should have been picked and is a Queenslander the same as Crocker, I bet you any money Hodges (QLD) is replaced by a less deserved player from NSW (Matt Cooper) instead of the deserved Karmichael Hunt (QLD). If this happens, I'll be crying corruption and consirpacy! Queenslander Crocker was out....Queenslander Thaiday should have been in...but noooooooo! A New South Welshman was picked. Now just watch...Queenslander Hodges is out....Queenslander Hunt should be picked....but I bet he won't be...A New South Welshman will be chosen instead. [/rant] It is a massive shame that Hodge's recurring injury has inflamed. Australia will miss him . Hopefully he will be back fit from surgery by the beginning of next season.
