    I know we’re a long way off and new players could pop up next season. Or given there’s always the whole “pick the best players then choose positions” there could be players who could fill the spots.

    But let’s face it QLD have a serious center shortage while NSW has a battle for positions I could list at least 8 NSW players that would be able to handle Origin in the centers yet I’m struggling to think of 1 Qlder.

    Chambers was our best center last year and that really hurts to say out loud because he was no where near the top 5 centers last year and of course he is now gone.

    Morgan while being a good mr fix it at origin level just doesn’t seem to have that same spark about him when he starts as a center. I think in origin he’s really made it in that #14 jumper. When he comes on he just makes something out of nothing.

    So if you take those two out of the equation then who does that leave us with? Anyone coming through that you think will make it? Any players like Morgan that could transition to center not that it’s ideal?

    Gagai will probably shoved in there due to desperation with a utility in the other starting centre spot.

    There's a real obvious depth weakness.

    Morgan and Gagai probably.

    Morgan will have to play centre as Ben Hunt will be #14

    Lol if Gagai is selected again for rep footy.

    How far the mighty have fallen of a sheer cliff face.

    Do you think Jake Friend would be first choice hooker? Rep coaches seem to love Hunt.

    I like Capewell alot, but it's pretty sad to think one of our better centre options is a bench second rower.

    I think Corey Thompson might make his wing debut next year. He seems to be pretty close.

    Can Holmes play centre?

    I know he’d make a better winger, but he seems a bit more secure there than Gagai.

    Ponga would be a better choice I would think. Maybe the front runner.

    You could put Holmes at FB if he's up to it and chuck munster back in the halves.

    I reckon we should wait and see.
    It’ll be a very good side. Centres included.
