Humble pie on menu FOURNATIONS By STEVERICKETTS in Auckland New Kangaroos five-eighth Todd Carney stretches out at yesterdays Captains Run ahead of todays showdown with the Kiwis in Auckland. Inset: Fellow Test debutant Matt Scott Kangaroos will show no mercy AUSTRALIAS emus have vowed to make the Kiwis eat humble pie in todays Four Nations rugby league Test at Aucklands Eden Park. The emus, the secondstring players on tour, are fired up to prove they deserve to stay in the top 17 for next Saturdays tournament final in Brisbane, especially as their selection has led to criticism in New Zealand about Australia disrespecting Test football. Former Kiwi and Sydney Roosters winger Richie Barnett wrote that Australian coach Tim Sheens decision to rest skipper Darren Lockyer and superstar fullback Billy Slater oozed disrespect. In a hard-hitting newspaper column, Barnett said Sheens tactics made a mockery of his claims that every Test was important. Its disrespectful to the Kiwis, and they will certainly use it as motivation, Barnett wrote. Debutant Australian interchange forward Dean Young said the Kiwis were guilty of disrespect if they thought this was not the Kangaroos best side. No one takes playing for Australia for granted, Young said. You will see 17 committed blokes out there. We will all be doing our best because we all want a shot at the final. Us Emus have put in a lot of hard work and were looking forward to playing together. We were having a joke the other night at the International Federation dinner because a lot of the Emus picked up awards. We all thought: Thats one for the Emus. Weve had a great trip and enjoyed each others company. Now we get rewarded with what is probably the best game of the series so far. If the Kiwis are saying that we disrespect Test football, than they are disrespecting us by saying this is not our strongest side. Debutant prop Matt Scott agreed it was a new-look side, but said they were capable of beating any opposition. You only have to look at the names that have come in, Scott said. Were definitely missing some experience with Locky and Billy out. But youve got the Dally M player of the year (Todd Carney) and the International Fullback of the Year (Darius Boyd) coming in, so were not missing out anything at all. I dont think its necessarily a weaker team. Its going to be a bit different from the ones that played the first two games, but certainly not any weaker. Scott revealed his Queensland teammate Petero Civoniceva had been the first to congratulate him on his selection, even though it was at his expense, with Civoniceva battling to hold his spot for the final. Its added motivation knowing there is a chance to play in the final, Scott said. I dont want to let my country down and I dont want to let the team down. Its a chance for me to cement a spot and Id love to be there when the final comes around.

KUMULS: team not available Disgraced Raiders star Monaghan facing sack Joel Monaghan DISGRACED Canberra centre Joel Monaghan will be sacked by the club on Monday when the eightmember Raiders board convenes in the national capital, Fox Sports reported late yesterday. Its been reported that at least four of the Raiders major sponsors have written letters to the club threatening to withdraw $1 million worth of revenue over a lewd photograph of Monaghan which was posted on the internet. The development comes as NRL chief executive David Gallop continues to monitor the situation, with the games governing body extremely close to making the call to de-register Monaghan from playing rugby league in Australia. Gallop is understood to have wanted to de-register Monaghan on Thursday after the photograph went viral in email and began flooding inboxes around the country. But the NRL will wait for the outcome of the Raiders board meeting on Monday where Monaghans contract is expected to be torn up. The Raiders board is an ultraconservative collection of exgovernment officials and diplomats who have previously made the hard-line call to sack Todd Carney after repeated alcoholrelated indiscretions. A number of other Raiders sponsors have also verbally threatened to resign from any association with the club as the fallout from rugby leagues latest blackeye reverberates. Eels set to thrive PARRAMATTA prop Tim Mannah says the Eels are ready to put a wasteful 2010 behind them and reload for next NRL season without the pressure of favouritism. The Eels entered last season as heavy favourites to claim their first premiership in more than two decades, but struggled with the pressure and failed to even reach the finals. But Mannah believes the painful memories of a disappointing year will motivate a rejuvenated lineup to greater glories in 2011. I think we obviously didnt achieve as much as we wanted to achieve, he said. With the team weve got, we dont have any excuse to not make the finals. It was obviously a tough season but thats rugby league. Even last year when we made the made the grand final, we had a first half of the season which was actually really low so ... rugby league is full of surprise. Sometimes you have to go through the low to hit the high and I think a lot of us are going to be better off after last year, and have a bit more hunger and a bit more desire for 2011. Weve got to be a hungry squad, from the oldest player to the youngest player weve got a lot of players that will want to be hungry to improve on their game. Mannah said incoming coach Stephen Kearney had set the bar high, demanding results from the clubs preseason training which started this week.
