    doesn't matter what nufties we come up with, they will always find a way to out-think and out-enthuse the "full of my own importance" forwards you are famous for selecting. we play for the people of qld, we know how good we can make the supporters feel with a win against the odds.

    Slater hasn’t retired and is playing some great footy.
    GI has had a great return and always lifts for the big ones. Will be hard to leave him out.

    Yeah Slater is playing some good footy, not denying that but wasn't sure if he made himself available and Greg Inglis just got outplayed but Euan Aitken in the weekend, got fended off and blitzed. He should hang em up tbh.

    Ponga is in contention for a Queensland spot

    https://wwos.nine.com.au/2018/04/08/14/36/ponga-enters-maroons-origin-consideration

    Will be very interesting to see if Queensland's so called loyalty will give Boyd, Inglis etc Origin spots. Not sure if Ponga is ready for this level of football just yet. He isn't disappointing at Newcastle so far but I still think he will need to learn a bit more before getting an Origin spot.

    Kaufusi to start, Arrow on his bench spot.

    Tbh Morgan will need to lift hugely to hold off DCE/Hunt. Never thought I’d say that but here we are....

    Hope he stays with Fiji. The more competitive they are the better.

    I don't think much of Kaufisi, he has never really done much that has impressed me. He looks like he just benefits from the Storm system. Lowe is a fairly good second rower and he has a kicking game to.

    If he did decide he wanted to play for QLD, would he technically be able to? Like does he meet the criteria?

    This is from a post from Reddit from 2 years ago:

    There are a couple more criteria questions for those born outside of NSW or Queensland and they are


    1. Have you resided in NSW or Queensland since before your 13th birthday?

    • If the answer to this question is yes then you are eligible for 'selection criteria'
    • If the answer to this question is no, then your father must have played State of Origin, and you are eligible to play for his state.
    Kikau was born in Fiji and first came to the Cowboys aged 18. This would appear to rule him out.
