    Both COOK & Cody have been rewarded for being part of the scintillating spine that has STHS "soaring" so well in this NRL comp!!

    Cook makes this Country rep side as he is basically the only No. 9 left standing!! Although, Koroisau should have been picked before him as he was still standing;I think!?

    Cook was the best hooker in the WORLD pre-season when he made the ALLSTARS!!

    Some Rep footy has become a farce so,hence,City/Country & Allstars are either being axed or considered for the chop!!

    Can't really expect your spine to carry your outside backs who easily leak 20-30 points a game and that's on a good day.

    McInnes made the city side as the only man left standing? What's your point here?

    Country vs city isn't a NSW trial match anymore I thought that was apparent? Peats and koroisau would already be front runners for the NSW jersey. Peats has come back to the Titans and instantly proved he deserves the 9.

    I re-read the Telecrap news about the Coffs Harbour incident. I do not think there is not much issue between Rusty and McInnes, It's just that the media and fans made a small problem bigger and McInnes just found a reason to get out of Souths which he had been trying to do at the end of 2015.

    Let's say, Cook and Farah are NOT the #9's that will take Souths forward. There are 2 things Souths can do, Either Souths will find another #9 or re-sign them both long term which I believe it is stupid and something that Souths will most likely do .

    We are not losing games because Robbie is Hooker or Cook is Hooker. There's a lot more factors involved that than.

    If all of a sudden we had Cameron Smith as Hooker would this solve all our other issues? Probably not.

    Almost everyone is arguing who is a better Hooker. Farah, McInnes or Cook. So, to be fair to all, they're all crap players.

    It will always help if one of your players is the 3rd referee on the field...

    Yet when we had the same problems last year it was all Mcinnes fault. When inglis came back late last year, and all 3 burgii decided they'd all have a go every week, we won some games. This coincided with cook starting and people wrongly thought it was all down to him. Now that we have inglis gone again and the burgii being incostitent, why isnt cook putting in these super performances and making the supposed difference he had last year?

    Yes, but doesn't that also mean that Cook isn't the problem?

    McInnes wasn't the answer. He was a part of the problem, and I didn't say the improvement was all because of Cook, but he definitely helped make the team better. Cook and Farah are not close to being the biggest problems in the team. Our biggest problems are some our outside backs who have been poor in attack and defense, and a big part of that problem is because of injuries to some backs, plus Reynolds has been inconsistent too. We also need 2 second rowers who can make line breaks and score when attacking the try line - Sutton and Crichton can do it. Turner barely ever does it, which is why I prefer him in the middle third (where he actually makes decent metres). George getting suspended all the time hasn't helped either - He never learns! It's a shame because he was making good metres with his hit ups in most of the games he has played this season.

    Cook was part of the answer at the end 2016 though.

    That sense does not belong in here.

    You're wasting your breath.
