    Will Maloney be the scapegoat for Pearce again?

    They were both f**king horrible.
    Pearce is getting a lot of hate (and rightly so) but Maloney has been just as bad in the last two games.
    Seems he ran out of ideas after game 1. Actually it seems like all the Blues did.

    He seems to do them when he feel we are getting on top again, both game 2 and last night he gives away ridiculously obvious strip penalties when NSW is just getting some momentum back, dumb f**king footy.

    This is the on-going legacy of playing under Gallen.

    Haven't had time yet to go back over the tape but seems that Graham and Fifita could wear some blame

    turning the ball inside was all they came into the series with. worked well for a game and a half. you don't think guys like walters, langer et al aren't going to wise up to it after a while? nothing changed for NSW from game 1 to game 3.....nothing at all. game plans and interchanges were all the same through out the series.

    and that's just it. NSW never realised that it was a series. they're playing the same team so they will see what you bring and adjust. QLD did, NSW didn't.

    Fafita has done nothing since Game 1. Totally useless.

    Mind you he was still better than Woods! How Shannon Boyd wasn't picked over this plodder has me gobsmacked!

    Yep Graham didn't have a good game but the hysterics in that Graham cost the team is absolute garbage, Codner's effort in the origin was to say pretty ordinary he missed the tackle that lead to that no try to Cronk, the miss tackle to Munster which gave Holmes his 3 rd try, plus all the balls he dropped, but hey pleas make it out thast it was just Graham's and Hayne's fault.

    What on earth did Hayne do other than try to milk a bunch of penalties, let Chambers get outside him and Gagai dump him on his arse?

    He was even worse than Graham...

    If Hayne played fullback and we had proper centre we win this series

    LOL putting the GOAT fullback in the centres

    And he's lost the ability to do it himself.

    Just watched the replay and lesbians aside, if Hayne is selected next year I will smile. He offered basically nothing this year. He strolled in for a soft try in game 1 after NSW were already well on top and jumped into the crowd like he had done it all himself despite being shown up defensively a few times in the match. Game 2 was....well game 2. And Game 3 was nearly as diabolical. He did nothing positive. His only impact on the series was that of a bumbling ball hogging mercenary with a severe case of white line fever.

    I think the question that needs to be asked is if NSW have better players to replace these guys next year:

    Hayne: Only left side specialist we really have is Michael Jennings. Can Dylan Walker or Jack Bird play on the left? They'd get in over Hayne I think.

    Maloney: Only real option here is Matt Moylan. Read something today suggesting next year it should be Moylan/Cleary. I do tend to agree that Maloney didn't do enough this year. Ditto Pearce.

    Graham: Lots of options for a utility forward. Jake Trbojevic can do it and I'd probably have him do it and simply bring another prop in but we also have the likes of Luke Lewis, Mitch Aubusson, Tyrone Peachey and a few others)

    This is a pretty good analysis. I wish Graham would just pick his moments better because he's very good when disciplined.
