I'm still wondering why tf Merrin couldn't just play prop and ET at lock. Like lol
Injured shoulder after only 7 minutes back in 20's.
So what's your point? An injury is an injury.
Could the total lack of development of players in NSW have something to do with the fact the NRL clubs are left in charge of development? Is it the number of Islanders in the NSW juniors?
There much be an explanation for as to why Qld is developing so much more talent - especially in the halves.
12-a-side football. (7 interchanges per match)
Tedesco, Ferguson, Dugan, G Jennings, T Treboiovich, B Cartwright, L Brooks, Fifita, Peats, Campbell-Gillard, T Frizell, W Graham
Interchange - M Moses, J McLean, D Klemmer, J Jackson
Corey Parker not playing past this year. Napa a certainty next year.
I know he's 72, but surprised Parker is calling it quits. He has been fantastic for a few years now and could have played on easily I reckon.
Coen Hess seems to be playing as an edge forward for the northern pride in the isc lately. do you think that is where his future lies?
Coming off the bench for the nrl side.
Team seems to be shaping this way except for the halves. Though Keary has a better chance now that he is at Roosters
Turner might of made it if not for neck and head injuries
Starling? Not sure what I was thinking there
Still backing Gidley for a 2019 appearance
Add Bateman. Could be ready as soon as next year.
11. Cordner (c)
It's easy to see what you were thinking - get as many current or recently ex-Rabbitohs in the team as possible
I know hindsight and everything but when has Starling ever looked like he could be or develop into a starting origin prop? everyone else has atleast been rated that way or shown that potential at one time but Starlo was a plodder from day one.
I like that side except for Jackson, he can go. Also Junior Paulo in place of RCG who is good himself but not as good as Paulo and the (c) should be next to Woods.
if slater and chambers are fit and firing in 10 months time, who does kevvie choose. boyd at one was among the best 3 qld players over the 3 games but i think he goes back to the wing outside inglis and slater comes back to the one jersey. same for nsw if hayne returns. teddy was very good, but he was put in the clear twice and did not score. hayne scores at least one of those opportunities. teddy to the wing,
chambers to the other centre with gagai outside him. o'neill and oates were fantastic all 3 games, but val holmes comes in next if reqd, imo.
You're f**king mad if you think Oates will be dropped.
Oates only got his chance because slater was out... He was good but team is stronger with slater at one and Boyd winger outside inglis. Bide his time. He will get chances.
Congratulations to the blues and Paul gallon! !,
Slater will be lucky to see another rep jersey again and Oates was on the verge of Australian selection only missing out against the best winger in the world in Radradra. If someone was making way for slater, it would be the two guys on the other side of the field.
