    How did Munster get MOM
    In game 3
    No doubt he is a good player
    He is a dangerous runner of the ball
    Can pass and kick
    Not so much in the creative department and lacks vision for a 5/8
    He is more of an opportunistic 5/8
    He will see space or a player out of position and attack
    But back to SOO 3
    Even his stats were below Harry Grants stats ( Look it up If u didn’t watch the game)
    And Grant had more of an impact creating breaks on his own and busting NSW open
    But all the media and commentary is about Munster
    He made 2 plays a strip and of course the 3 kick regather and try assist which almost bombed because kick wasn’t that good
    Beside that game was ordinary
    Didn’t create anything for outside backs
    Kicking was ordinary and didn’t break line with his running game and he tried many times in the NSW 20 m zone

    You know who is overrated? New South Wales.

    Take out Tedesco and Addo Carr and this is a bongwater ordinary rep team.

    Rightfully beaten.

    And it seems QLDers or just maybe you can’t read just vent
    If you don’t know when addressing a post you usually respond to the topic at hand not start your own
    Here’s a tip don’t comment if you have nothing worthwhile to discuss
    Go spread ur hate elsewhere

    And if Grant don’t play
    Does QLD still win on the back of Muster?

    Why not take this further, so Grant doesn't play, Cameron Smith comes out of retirement but only for a 5min cameo, Munster goes down early with an injury after 20mins, Moses Mbye is playing fullback but Greg Inglis back from UK slots in at centre for Lee. Now for the real kicker, Munster comes back on the second half all needled up ready to play, QLD are down by 12 points, does QLD win?

    Most will say yes obviously so let's spice things up a bit, Cherry Evans isn't playing as he got injured 2 days before the game so Ben Hunt slots in at half back, Qld have managed to claw there way back into the contest and the scores are locked up at full time sending it to golden point, NSW's have just kicked of and the ball is floating towards Hunt, Munster is sprinting across to try intercept the ball, do QLD win ?

    No
    No the Blues win because Qld obviously have way too many players on the field at one time for that scenario to be reasonable ;)

    It’s the worst team we’ve rolled out in origin. Thought that before the series and confirmed it to me after.

    Of all the current halves in the NRL, if I could have one of them to secure for the Dragons...

    It’s Munster.

    I find it hilarious that you created an alt account for this.

    Munster made NSWs best and their coach look like monkeys.

    Give them a case of bananas as a consolation prize.

    I’m not even sure it’s an alt. Smells like a Facebook convert to me.

    He's the best current origin player which shows the lack of quality across the board.

    It probably was more a reflection on the fact that Munster has amassed a track record which consolidates his danger to opposition teams whether SOO or otherwise. Grant has yet to complete a full year in First Grade or play in more than one game of SOO. That to me would be one of the compelling reasons why Grant justifiably was passed over for the honour.
