QLD have an issue with Hess on the bench and using him as a middle. He was impotent there last series and nothing changed last night. Walters will probably bring in Scott but the other middles Wallace and Arrow need to step up again. McGuire surprised me with the amount of mins he played after missing a month of footy. Papalii has moved to the middle for Canberra and he did well last night. Just can't play big mins. If Gillett can return, he may find himself on the left as there is no way you dump Kaufusi from the right. QLD can improve for mine. They had blocks where they were on top. Hunt never really took on the line as he has with Illawarra this season. Maybe the injury was on his mind. And of course, Slater will be back and there will be a case for Ponga on the bench. It's could leave Morgan out of the squad. He was solid but nowhere near the form he had guiding the cows to the GF last season. Game 2 will be great.
