    If I'm picking the side, Ponga plays 1. Not because the series is done but because i believe he will bring more to the team than Slater. Not a knock on Slater but i have question marks over him without Cronk or Smith. Ponga's footwork is elite and in what seems to be a predictable backline, he would bring the ability to keep the opposition guessing.

    The one they need in is Glasby. He did a job on us game 2 last year. They need D up the middle.

    As Leeds fan years ago there was a partnership with the Souths.

    This is primarily the reason why I decided to follow the Souths. Even though I live 10,000 miles away and are 9 hours behind Oz the advent of the internet and social media has made it so much easier to follow NRL!

    James will get the spot.
    Cronulla have the bye this week so Prior can provide an extra body at training. If another forward is needed, Tariq Sims will be brought in ahead of Prior.

    Lol. Slater picked at 1 with Ponga on the bench.

    Tariq is a backrower. They already have a backrower on the bench and the starting backrowers played 80 and 63 minutes in game 1. A genuine prop is needed. Playing backrowers as middle forwards in Origin is just stupid.

    Slater directs the defence from the back. He's not as fast on his feet as Ponga but makes up for it between the ears. Queensland will be a much tougher proposition if he plays. Ponga will come on later and try to beat tired defences with his footwork.

    One of Fittler' favs.

    I'm much happier with Cody.

    No arguements but Napa is the only Queenslander that has the ability to intimidate.
