    And if NSW win, with Fifita on the bench, it's a tactical master stroke. Bit of a non story designed to drum up headlines that I am not surprised that Kent is attached to. Doesn't take away the fact that Fifita was very poor but singling him out when there were plenty of other poor performers is pretty poor and shows, again, Kent as a vindictive merkin.

    isn't that the point of the story? That didn't happen because Fifita had a hissy fit?

    It is. The point I am making is the media will twist things to suit an agenda. Kent doesn't like Fifita and he takes plenty of opportunities to show it.

    Mumbles is a far bigger pretender than Fifta, Andrew has to face 'real' opposition

    Fifitas sulk about being benched and the story going around about 2 players hitting the pub during the camp say it all about the NSW culture and Daleys lack of discipline.

    Joey was right. NSW just dont get it...

    True. But his worst should not fall so far short of his best.

    Compare it to when the emerging Queensland squad broke curfew - Walters stood them down for the year, in nsw their reaction would be:

    nsw just don't win things anymore.

    they have 1 fantastic effort each series which promotes the idea that they are the real deal & the backslapping &who is the next immortal circle-jerk breaks out.

    then reality hits.

    they're actually crap.

    How about Mal Meninga's "merit" kangaroo squad.

    It was evenly made up of blues & maroons.

    He was being very very generous!

    Even 'if' is too far.
