Yeah, as Wortho said in his podcast, it appears someone is financially taking care of Ben's contract situation.

Read on... it says "if he makes himself available". Anything to sell tickets.

What crap. The games will sellout in Perth regardless of whether Ben plays or not

100% agree they will sell out in Perth, but the headline reads like he's playing, there is no guarantee he is playing in these games, but it's just another tactic to make sure tickets sell quick.

Wortho in his podcast seems adamant that he's spoken to a certain sponsor who has guaranteed Ben will play by putting a great amount of money to it. I asked Boti about it, and he asked Wortho, and Boti more or less verified that yes, this seems credible.

At this point it appears more likely than not that Ben will be playing these games.

Was listening to the Starters pod and they were talking about USA may bring Zion into the team, would be awesome if he came over for the friendlies!
