SAM Thaiday has taken a huge swing at Australian selectors over his snub for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

The Broncos star has been left furious over the selection panels failure to inform him of their decision to overlook the 32-year-old when the world cup squad was announced on Tuesday.

The star forward sent a message to the selection panel in a post on Instagram where he did nothing to show how angry he is over the snub.

Thaiday wrote he discovered his representative career was over by seeing a leaked news story on Monday.

Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga confirmed his squad for this year’s world cup on Tuesday with Thaiday among several big-name omissions.

“So it’s official — the end of my 2017 Rugby League year,” Thaiday wrote on Tuesday night.

“Who would’ve thought this year would be the last time I played for both QLD and Australia. A bit of respect would’ve been nice… to at least receive a phone call and learn about selection that way instead of through a leaked report from the media on last night’s news.

“After dedicating more than 10 years wearing the Maroon and Green and Gold jersey, you’d expect to be treated with a bit more decency and respect. I guess not. Lucky I have one more year left at the @brisbanebroncos unless someone wants to shatter that dream too.

“What a rollercoaster of a year — Peace out 2017.”

Aussie Aussie Aussie... No, No, No. So it's official - the end of my 2017 Rugby League year. Who would've thought this year would be the last time I played for both QLD and Australia. A bit of respect would've been nice... to at least receive a phone call and learn about selection that way instead of through a leaked report from the media on last night's news. After dedicating more than 10 years wearing the Maroon and Green and Gold jersey, you'd expect to be treated with a bit more decency and respect. I guess not. Lucky I have one more year left at the @brisbanebroncos unless someone wants to shatter that dream too. What a rollercoaster of a year - Peace out 2017
