I tried the select plus plugin, but it does not have the function to select features that lie fully within a polygon. Currently the plugin's selectRubberBand function selects features based on an intersection which is not what I want.
I've also noticed that the QGISGeometry class does not expose a contains method for other geometries, which would be required. I guess this could easily be added though.

did you tested the "select by location" tool in the "tools -> research tools" menu?

Thanks for the help, I didn't see that option. However that option also uses intersects to select the features. Plus you have to create a polygon in another layer first. Not very user friendly.
If we could get the contains method added to the QGISGeometry, we could easily update the select plus functionality. Just looking at the code it would be very simple.
It would be really nice to get the select plus functions added to core and exposed within the view menu and toolbar.
