Coops said last night that Smith could play 3 more series . First one to 50 games?
Lol that's a load of bullsh*t.
Storm has catchment areas in Queensland so of course they'd have players, same with the Cows and Broncs.
This manufacturing of drama is kind of amusing.
It's game 3, Munster and Morgan are no brainers...Ben Hunt is a head scratcher but Walters is a very tactical coach so there'd be a good reason.
You're not going to pick a half that hasn't trained with the squad in years over Munster or Morgan regardless of form.
Corey Norman > Munster.
If he keeps the desire - when that goes it's all over - and fitness up, he'll likely not only be the first but the only one.
34 at 42 games this year.
That means he'd have to play origin at 37 to break 50.
Let's see. Took his team to the Minor premiership and won it just missing out on a Grand Final win. Storm are top of the table currently. I doubt that anyone could say that Smith is over the hill.
He will be after tonight. Will go down as the 2nd best hooker of his generation though.
As much as it pains me to say it (and I loved bedsy), Of the hookers I've seen, Cameron smith is second to no one.
Looks like QLD made the right call in picking Munster over DCE at 6. Seems to have worked out.
Wow! What an effort from QLD to scrape a victory without DCE, noted Origin heavyweight!
We didn't scrape the victory. We slaughtered them.
That was the joke
It was really only NSW posters outraged about DCE not being picked anyway, those people can't be trusted.
Munster did more last night than DCE has done his entire Origin career.
Magically all came true again. Gillett returning to form, cam Smith lifting, etc.
even as a NSWman, i don't want to see Cronk retire just yet. smith, slater, and cronk are as professional as they come and it'll rub off on munster now too, but Cronk is such a master at organising his teams. seriously, he's my favourite player....a leader. i don't think he's seen as such because he's played his entire career with smith.
just a f**king wonderful advertisement for rugby league this bloke. doesn't get into trouble, has beautiful bird on his arm, is practically single in melbourne with no kids but disciplined not to get on the piss and run amok down there. only thing he needs to do is straighten his nose.
would have been great to use this bloke regularly on ch9 over his career. the sort of bloke we need show off to the general public that inspiring articulate professional blokes do play rugby league.
Guess we can overlook the chicken winging, grubbiness in the ruck and signing two contracts
You're such a dick-rider.
Little extra salt in that post there Bobbo. Hurting a little more today?
