    Honestly if I was Paul McGregor and Saints made GF, I'd be tempted to rest Hunt

    Agree. Gutho could have done a better job, if they just wanted a merkin to scurry about linking plays, defending in the centres or offering that second line of defence to shut down a line break.

    You merkins are cooked! Ben Hunt is a big game player with a great record.

    Single handedly won a GF for the Cowboys and almost single handedly won an Origin series for NSW. Brilliant player

    Pity we never got to see the epic dual between Hunt and Pierce for Origin supremacy.

    Thurston was livid hunt kicked on 3rd with a player in the bin. Did they even attempt to attack the nsw right edge during that period?

    The QLD coach didn't think so on both counts.

    Watching the Queensland show. It's enjoyable to see them trying not to turn on Hunt but finding a way to do it in the end.

    This will really start testing their shitty theories about 'not turning on each other' 'picking and sticking' etc.

    Yep. It's good to have the shoe on the other foot after so long.

    They lose two games and they are already eating their own, so much for all their loyalty BS.

    It’s easy to be loyal when you win 12 out of 13 series.

    our spine should be settled for the next couple of years
    (Maloney is 33yo next year)

    For QLD you would assume Ponga to 1 next year with Slater gone
    They will stay with Munster at 6, but 7 and 9 anyones guess

    to start with, hope we can go 3-0 this year and then repeat the effort next year
