The Test World Cup is not a great way to train rugby players.
But it is a great opportunity for players from all over the world to get a taste of what it is like to be a world class player.
Australia is currently preparing for the tournament in a host of cities across the country and has a number of key players who will be tested against the best in the world, including Sonny Bill Williams, Matt Giteau, Paul O’Connell, Sonny Bill Hodge, Matt Hodgson, Tim Lafai and Tim Simona.
But there are also a few players who have been on the sidelines for some time, including hooker Ben Smith, who was suspended by the Canterbury Raiders last month.
It was reported earlier this year that the Raiders had agreed to a one-year deal with the hooker for 2019.
“Ben Smith is out of contract,” a source told the Herald Sun.
“The Raiders have also agreed a one year deal with him.”
The Raiders are one of three NRL clubs that will be testing hookers in 2019.
The Warriors have a number forwards and two lock, while the Storm and the Broncos have two halves.
The only other NRL club with a hooker in 2019 is the Canberra Raiders, who have a lock in their squad.
The Raiders are hoping that Smith will play a key role in their test preparations and return for the 2019 World Cup.
Smith’s suspension means he will be out of the test pool in 2019 and will have to be rested for the next season.
This means the Raiders will be facing a challenge in training, with only one lock in the squad, but they can still prepare for the game.
For the Warriors, it means that Josh Dugan will have a big opportunity to play a starring role in his team’s preparation.
He played a key part in the Warriors’ upset win over the Raiders in their final test match of the season in the NRL finals last week.
Dugan was named the game’s best try scorer in the game, scoring five tries in the match, including a second-half try to put the Warriors over the top.
Dugan has not played for the Warriors since the game and will be missing out on the opportunity to test.
In the Warriors favour is that they have three players who are still under contract, and Dugan, who is also contracted, is still a free agent.

For the Storm, they have to make the most of the opportunity they have at hooker.
Josh Papalii is a key player in the Storm’s defence and he will have the chance to test against the Raiders for the first time in 2019, with both sides keen to keep their best players.
The Raiders were the first team to test Papaliii at the Allianz Stadium last year, and the two teams will have their first chance to work together this week.
Papalii was the game-time test lock for the Raiders, but was suspended for the final two rounds of the year due to his actions in the second half of the Warriors game.
He returned for the third round of the tournament, but missed the final three rounds due to injury.
Papilii was given the opportunity in the final test against Canterbury, but he was not able to play.

That means the Warriors will be looking to him to be the game breaking hooker, but Papalini will also be looking at his next move.
With his suspension, the Raiders have to get back to training and get Papalius fit to start in the 2019 NRL season.
He is also a key figure in the development of the Storm with both halves of the team having signed long-term deals in the off-season.
Australia’s test team will be in Melbourne for the World Cup finals.
There are no doubt players who would love to test for Australia, and they are all hungry to do so.
While they will have plenty of competition, the Rugby League World Cup can also be a great chance for players to test themselves against the world’s best, and for those who do, to get the opportunity for a game-changing performance.
