    How doesn't Chris Heighington get a run in that team? He's been exceptional in a crap Tigers side this year.

    How do you leave the named players out though?

    Only question mark I'll have is Noddy over Soward but Soward's a 6 and Bird's form's been great too.

    I would've picked Soward over Carney though.

    Agreed.

    That forward pack for Country is amazing. Throw in the massive centre pairing and Bird at 5/8, that's an exceptionally strong team.

    I think Soward and Carney should be there.

    Mason?

    Just noticed Greg Bird at 5/8th... big WTF, he's been woeful this year, luckily for him the rest of his team have risen to compensate.

    Jennings on the wing?

    Well done to Lauchlan Coote and Tim Grant both thoroughly deserve their place in the side.

    Yeah but some CvC selections will be targeted toward players that may not be in outstanding form but they have played at that level before. I personally think Bird offers more in the forwards and they should play him there.

    Could have been Trent Barrett or Jamie Soward I guess but I don't mind. I like the team personally, good blend of youth and experience which is important.

    How does Champion push Jennings to the wing?

    If anything, Lawrence should be moved to the wing.

    Tahu over anyone more like it.

    The guy abandoned rugby league. Now he is back and praised like the return of the messiah.

    Has done nothing this year to warrant selection.

    They never have.
    Anthony has only ever played for the rooster and mark has never played for the roosters, unless you want to include lower grades.
    They have never played representative together either.

    City side looks like more of a look into the future and could be fairly close to what we see in Origin in 5 years. Champion pushing Jennings to the wing is an odd decision. Perhaps they're looking to see if we could run with a 1. Hayne 2. Morris 3. Morris 4. Lyon 5. Jennings backline.

    Glad to see Grant and Coote get a run. The battle between the fullbacks should be an absolute cracker. These guys are going to be pushing Slater hard in a years time.
