Kangaroos coach Ricky Stuart has announced several changes to the Australian squad that belted New Zealand 58-0 last October.
Manly full-back Brett Stewart, Parramatta winger Jarryd Hayne, Melbourne half-back Cooper Cronk and lock Michael Crocker were dropped from the squad that scored the biggest win ever over the Kiwis last year.
One notable omission was that of Eels second-rower and 15-Test veteran Nathan Hindmarsh.
It’s believed that the poor form of his club in a couple of games has come back to haunt the reliable work-horse who is no guarantee to bolt back into the NSW Blues squad either.
