The return of Scott would be a huge boost to Australia's hopes of retaining the World Cup trophy they won at Old Trafford in 2013 and he would have been the first forward chosen by Meninga if fit. Aaron Woods, David Klemmer, Andrew Fifita and Jake Trbojevic are expected to be in the 24-man squad to be named after the NRL grand final, leaving room for one or two other front rowers.
Solomone Kata and Tuimoala Lolohea have turned their backs on New Zealand in a massive boost to Tonga’s World Cup hopes – and Michael Jennings is also set to pledge his allegiances to the Mata Ma’a. Lolohea and Kata, who have both previously played for the Kiwis, announced they had opted to play for Tonga at the World Cup, while Jennings – a member of Australia’s 2013 World Cup winning squad – will choose the Mata Ma’a over Fiji.
Vaughan, who has an Italian-born grandmother, was a member of the Azzurri side which upset England in a warm-up match on the eve of the last World Cup. Among his Italy team-mates was James Tedesco, who is another player making his first trip to PNG with the PM’s XIII, along Fiji hooker Api Koroisau, his Manly team-mate Dylan Walker and Cronulla pair Jack Bird and Valentine Holmes.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
