    Cleary played exactly as expected. He is Pearce 2.0. Keary into the side and we get some danger into the our attack, and Cleary can just plod along plodding his plod .

    Wighton done what Wighton does, regardless he has that SKD in him, and always will. Besides which I can't even see why he was there in the first place.

    All in all though a coupla changes and we can still take out this series.

    Keary is out for 6 weeks due to concussion. NSW needs someone else.

    I will make the following changes:

    Reynolds/Pearce for Cleary
    Ferguson/Tommy T for Cotric
    Sims for Crichton

    Doubt he will be there for game 2, this was a loyalty pick

    Walker looked out of his depth, hindsight is a wonderful thing and if Fitler was going to play loyalties should have stuck with Maloney/Cleary combo, at least for game 1.

    That intercept killed us. I wouldn't have been too upset if Fitler stuck with Peacey at 14.

    Whilst Morris played well, he hogged the ball a bit when there was space out side him in the first half, potentially could have lead to a try or two?

    We all know Peachey wouldn’t have thrown that intercept. He’d have to know how to pass to do that

    Did Walker get hooked or was he part of the interchange plan?

    Not sure on his injury status bit if fit Keary has to be there.

    EDIT: Just saw someone posted he is out for 6 weeks. Please ignore.

    f*cked has also become a colloquial term for disparagement. For instance, my car can be f*cked but that doesn't mean I shoved my genitals down the exhaust pipe.

    Considering the result, I hope a smooth pineapple is used on the Blues.

    The plan that had Klemmer ride the pine for 2nd half while Hass had brain explosions?

    Well again, hindsight, but you definitely can't get into the game if you are sitting on the bench. It's almost like Wighton was picked as an insurance policy against exactly that happening. Fittler showing his lack of experience at utilising a bench week in and week out in the NRL imo.

    So what about the pre match entertainment? Was that dude singing the alternate anthem? I wonder if Cody and Latrell were humming it in the warm up? Such a catchy tune.
    Seriously was that bloke Australias Meatloaf?

    In the tackle that resulted in Mitchell getting sin binned, how come there was no mention (and I am sure there won't be any charge from the mrc) about the high shot from Tedesco?
