Nice job mate.

Good depth in most positions with players on the upswing of their careers.

Reece Walsh? Helium Luki?

My first choice team, no injuries of course.

1. Ponga
2. Taulagi
3. Holmes
4. HTF
5. Cobbo

6. Munster
7. DCE

8. Tino F
9. Hunt
10. Cotter
11. Capewell
12. Kaufusi
13. Carrigan

14. Grant
15. Nanai
16. Welch
17. Collins

I could see guys like Flegler, Fifita, Dearden forcing their way in through good form. Lots of options really if players stay healthy.

I usually wait until after they've played their first game to name them. Walsh, Luki, B. Hunt etc. should be added in the weeks to come.

It's going to be interesting to see what happens with that right centre position. Gagai's best days are behind him and while he's been a great servant for Queensland he's going to have to earn his spot.

It's a good test for Billy, I can't think of one selection he got wrong last series.

Good opportunity for some of the fringe guys to step up and put their name in contention for squad spots.

*Rivett was born in Gosford but came through the Burleigh Bears junior system. I believe he's a Maroon but the QRL website doesn't list him as such.
** QRL claims Oloapu is a Queensland junior. I know he was originally from New Zealand and signed with the Broncos at the age of 13. I'm not sure if he arrived before his birthday or if we have another Mulitalo situation on our hands.

I've also made an executive decision and decided to disband the interchange section. You may notice some utility players have been named in roles they don't necessarily play in 2023, I've just gone with their default position.

What is the eligibility of Klese Haas?
Would you continue with Gagai this year or look at Isiah Tass or Hammer in the centres?

Oloapu represented Sunshine Coast at the QSS U12 championships. So just sneaks in I think.

Led the Queensland forward pack during a tough period after a number of retirements. Enjoyed the fruits of that work by leading them to series wins in 20 and 22.

Queensland legend, never to be forgotten.
