    Can we add Woods to the list too? Soft, slow runs, glacier like ptb's especially near the end, fmd its painfull to watch.

    Hayne was the one of only two Blues who tried to win the game in the second half as opposed to the rest who were playing to not lose. The two errors with the ball are just as much to do with terrible passes as they are his ability. If one of the hit him on the torso NSW win.
    Look at the Gagai match winner and how he comes inside off his line to get the ball and score in the space provided by defenders moving across to defend the corner and then look at Morris keeping to the touchline. Hayne did the right thing in backing himself in but Morris should've provided an option and left one or two of the defenders with a decision to make.

    The reaction that Hayne has recieved from his game on Wednesday night is a compliment of the high standards that are expected of him and i expect he'll be best on in game 3

    He was picked in game 2 because he had an excellent game in game 1. He played so well in game 1 that his detractors (starting with Vautin on the nine commentary) had to fabricate a narrative where "he defended badly".

    I was talking about his selection in game 1.

    But didn't he prove you wrong in game 1.
    Were you calling for him to be dumped after game 1?

    In my opinion he did in game 1 what he has done almost every origin match he has play.

    I wouldn't have minded bit of form drop. Especially since he's got a history of service but the selfishness is off putting. I don't want us to lose a series because he's trying to pad his highlights.

    A lot of people want Hayne dropped for Jennings. I can assure you Jennings never passes to his winger unless he absolutely has to.
    Hayne backed himself. In hindsight it was the wrong call and possibly cost us the game, but I doubt he was trying to pad his stats. He just has a great history of getting to the try line in those circumstances.
    The second half brain snap pass was unforgivable.

    If it's between Hayne or Jennings I'll take Hayne.

    Got to disagree with you here on Hayne making the right play...the space you refer to inside is created by Hayne sliding - if Hayne backs off when Morgan heads towards Morris, Morris covers him and Hayne then covers the hole Gagai runs through.

    It is as much about a good play by Morgan as it is about Hayne not getting sucked in...but where the sliding defence gets to the sideline, it was Haynes responsibility to make the right read and swap the defence of Morgan with Morris and stop the inside play by Gagai.

    I should've worded it better but i was comparing Gagai's match winner with Hayne's effort to score in the corner where Morris stays on the touchline. I feel that if Morris cuts in behind Hayne, he recieves the ball and leaves the Queensland defence wrongfooted as their all sliding to stop Hayne.

    Sadly Hayne is washed up now,he has actually always taken the selfish option in his career and 99% of the time it payed off but that was when he was in his prime,now he a washed up slow merkin

    You do realise Lockyer is a Queensland selector. So basically he would have been bagging himself out, right?

    Tommy is loveable but pretty much mentally retarded.

    Bennett is Qld and preaches good clean living for his players but his life and he is a massive lie.

    Hayne played bad but he is in my team.

    Is there another halves option, because Jimmy stinks right now. Blake Green played all over him yesterday.

    I wouldn't drop him but Sharks should rest him. He looked worn out against Manly.
