    Yeo is my favourite forward since Shane Rodney.

    Excellent defender with great footwork.

    I hope he gets a run.

    According to Zero Tackle only Addo-Carr, Finucane and Papenhuyzen are eligible for blues from Storm, all quality players though so we may get 4 spots.

    Cam McInnes is already in the squad. Is he still considered a Hooker?

    Api must feel hard done by. There was talk he would get the jump on Cook in this year's Blues but doesn't even get a spot in the 27 man squad!

    Yep. I am keen to see how the rookies go in elite company but most of all I want to see if Nathan can finally dominate a big game

    Same. He had the chance to own that game but he seems to have the attitude for it.

    Only is young so still has time but he was doing things right mid season but fell away was we got to the end. Good chance to go end the season well and show what he has learnt

    I’ve never really cared too much about origin it is all about Panthers for me.

    I am pleased to see our players get the recognition they deserve even if it bumps up there contract value

    Having said the above I do hope Yeo gets a blue jersey if anyone deserves he surely does.

    There has been a lot of speculation that Cleary won't be in the right headspace after the grand final loss to steer the NSW Origin side in game 1.

    I just read an interview with Luke Keary regarding this point. Keary said "Nobody died, its just a game of footy, he will be fine" perhaps we should all take Mr Kearys advice. Bring on Origin. GO BLUES!!

    Keary and Cleary will go good. Nathan played with Pap in Aust schoolboys I think too. It'll just be onto the next job.

    Sounds like Keary is taking life lessons from James Maloney, Nathan is 22 years old earns a $mil pa and is about to pick up a bit of Xmas money over the next 3 weeks. The only issue he will have is a major tax problem.

    I'm not in the right head space for Origin.

    Why? On the extra $30k he and everyone else makes he'll have to pay $13.5k tax and a grand or so for Medicare and NDIS. They're just about playing for nothing but you don't play for money anyway.

    Probably should have been clearer if you include the total remuneration he gets from all sources(ie $20k per week plus Rep money, etc) he does have tax problem.

    Only to the extent everyone else in Australia does. You make money, you pay tax.

    Some idiot on the NRL site named him in. He forgot to edit an earlier story he posted in regards to who would make it from the Panthers team. Even Vonny read out Martin's name on Monday's NRL 360 because the article wasn't corrected for a few days.

    At least Liam knew at the ground that he had not made the squad.

    Chin up, by the time next Wednesday comes, you'll be pepped up to watch some more football.
