    Well if Gus wouldn't pick him, then my apologies.

    When Gus has the balls to coach a rep side again instead of his annual sooking then he can cut him.
    In the meantime Freddy, Buderus, Alexander will be picking him for NSW and Meninga will be making him Kangaroos captain.

    It took a while for people to catch onto Woods, it seems it will be a while before people catch onto Plodner too.

    Never again. Never. Again.

    I'm not in here arguing for Graham to be selected either.

    Only rep coaches opinions count now do they? You could swap out Boyd for Mitchell the last ten years and it is the exact same arguments: "Laurie and the selectors picked him they know more than you!" and my favourite: "He is highly rated in that other roosters fan forum"

    Lol Gus has been a bit busy rebuilding struggling Penrith club, kind of a much bigger job than coaching 3 games of footy a year but you are right, since he hasn't coached NSW in 15 years im sure he has forgotten everything he knows about rugby league, spectacular argument, why don't you try and counter what he said with something that makes sense? How is Gus wrong? LOL I will wait.

    Cordner definitely needs to add a bounce out line to his game

    Bit rich from someone whose argument was "You think Gould doesn't know footy?"

    Hypocrite

    Reaching massively and failing. I haven't disregarded the selectors opinions in any way shape or form in that comment, just questioning you statement that you have to be a current rep coach to have an opinion.

    My comment you have quoted was responding to Tommy who said something along the lines of "only casual fans who don't know footy don't rate him" I was pointing out Gus is one of those so called casual fans.

    Keep trying genius.

    Haha no it wasn't. You brought up Gus out of nowhere to back up your sooking. Tommy's "dumb fans" post was 3 posts later.

    You brought up a commentator with an opinion like it was special, I brought up the selectors as counter. You can't even follow your own posts.

    Genius.

    I'd like to see the Roosters let him join Newcastle. We'd throw in Mitch Barnett in a trade.

    They have no choice not to recognise it, same as the previous year's 4 nations because they both told me 2 weeks ago on the SOO forum that Cords 'has never performed at representative level"

    lol

    To be fair to Corner he is a gap back (or forward, same thing). It is hard to name any gap backs that are playing well and I think it is because there aren't any gaps on the field anymore.
    Seriously I have not seen a gap all season. The defense is just a mile ahead of the attack. First the 13 man game became the 13 monster game then we had full time coaches just working on defense. Gaps are a thing of the past.

    This is ridiculously sad. You literally wrote Goulds opinion off. I never once wrote off the selectors opinions that you mentioned, I just questioned you saying Gus doesn't get an opinion. How the f**k does that equal me being a hypocrite? Reaching so hard right now kungl, If anything you are the hypocrite for bringing the expert selectors opinions like it means something while at the same time writing off the expert commentators opinion(that I brought up), all in the same comment no less.

    Again, keep trying genius.

    More than adequate at NRL level. Games are won in the middle and I'd say RCG-Tamou-Merrin isn't such a bad starting trio at club level. Only need to look at Souths with the Burgii (holding the pill for a change), and Illawarra with Graham-Vaughan-Debelin to realise how important your starting middle third is to the weekly grind.
