Leaving out Armstrong was a big mistake imo.

more like

Green/Williamson

the U18 assist leaders stats has
1 Capetola 5.78
2 Buluk 5.56
4 Travers 5.11
5 madden 5

the 3rd point shouldn't be a problem.. its quite a versatile group, but still lack a true centre.

Starting 5 will be

Wigness
Buluk
Travers
Jackson
Williamson

Just like the Asian cup...

Jones and Green the somewhat surprising inclusions based on 18s performances. But good to see some changes from the Asia Cup team that, despite its success, didn't look particularly well-placed to compete at WC level. They still feel a touch undersized in the middle but the age group doesn't present a lot of possibilities to address that.

The changes do give them a lot of medium-sized but mobile bodies, with 9? of the squad 6'5" or taller. I do think the potential is there for style of play to mitigate some of the physical limitations so hopefully they can get that in place and have a successful tournament.
