    Still can't imagine how the Cows and their fans must be feeling...especially seeing Thurston and Coote stink it up each week. We've lost some young talent over the years but nothing like this kid

    KP has been called into the QLD camp with Slater in doubt. Some media outlets saying Slater is already ruled out.

    As good as Ponga is don't think he will play, many options for QLD, just a precautionary selection IMO

    I'll hate QLD even more if it takes him out of the Roosters game.. Or longer :neutral_face:

    Slater officially ruled out. Early mail is Morgan to fullback and Ponga onto bench.

    Having Ponga on the bench is almost the best scenario for us. He doesn't play the full game and can back up on the weekend but he still gets all the goodies that come with training with rep players. Probably also no pressure on him to perform as well.

    They’d be crazy not to leave the team as is and slide Boyd straight into Slater’s position.

    Boyd declined a camp invite, went on holidays instead.

    Okay I originally liked this thinking you were making a joke following him running off to Greece when he was playing for us but I just realised he's actually gone overseas on holiday LOL

    According to fox sports just then, Boyd is back in the country and trained with the Broncos today. Looks like his origin days are over, which is pretty rough considering what he’s done for the team over the last 10 years.

    As a Novocastrian and NSWelshman, f**k him.

    as a Blue and a Knights fan I'm stoked Kayln isnt in the side. Huge mistake leaving him out, he's that good I wouldnt be surprised if he would of got MOTM on debut.

    I wouldn't count your chickens just yet. I've got a feeling he's going to get a run. Praying he doesn't cop an injury, but also looking forward to seeing him with a better team around him.

    Im doubtful Kev will play him given the inexperience already in the team

    Kids a freak though, he'll carve up if he gets a shot
