    I never said that if you are referring to me. I said he only got picked because he was made captain last year and that Sims should of been picked ahead of him.

    The biggest problem the Roosters will have in 2019 is working out how to offload the dud front rowers that they have and fit in some decent ones When I say front row, that includes the hooker.

    Won't win a comp with the likes of Napa, SST and JWH laying the platform and Friend at hooker. Doesn't matter who is in the back row / halves / back line.

    Elite? :joy::joy::joy::joy: Oh god.

    It's a little odd to be bragging about the worst second rower in the comp being your best player. It does explain why the other teams have a chance now though.

    The main point of bringing up the selectors was to show that there's an expert(s) that holds the opposite opinion, that Gus isn't the final word on anything really.
    Whether Gould's bias-laced opinions hold any weight in 2018 is secondary.

    The rest of this is just "no you're a hypocrite" in too many words. ZZzzzzz

    Lol this is you realising you f**ked up and have nothing to counter with. You are still being a hypocrite as well. I never claimed Gus was the final word on anything, I said he is one of the best RL minds alive, feel free to dispute that if you like.

    The same little crew used to defend the selections of Fergo and Pearcey to the hilt. All fergo ever did in 7 games on the wing was usher the qld winger into score untouched, he never scored for NSW. Pearce, well enough said really.

    Atleast Pearce is likeable now that he's playing for a respectable club and not in the NSW side.

    Yes, elite.

    I'm not bragging, just pointing out a fact.

    Fergo?? I don't recall many saying they would have him picked this year. Personally I would have went Cotric instead of Turbo though

    RE: Pearce, you will never convince me that he isn't the biggest scapegoat in the history of SOO. That's not to say I believe he should have been picked every time however although he was generally the in form NSW eligible half back at origin time.

    The guy had a four on one overlap and tried to grubber for himself and knocked on, it was so blatant it’s a gif on these forums now. Easily the worst peace of halfback play I’ve seen in origin. Well that and Pearce overcalling Hokko the next year and not taking the field goal.

    Pearce suffers from a bit of scapegoatism but he was given 18 chances to turn in a good performance and the best he could do is a solid performance in an easy win for nsw last year. The truth is he never should of been picked 18 times, he was never good enough for that level.

    You dont need to defend that view.

    Everyone knows Pearce is the biggest failure in Origin history. How is he a scapegoat when he has gotten more undeserved chances than any other player in history?

    He's literally the only player not to have been held accountable for results.

    He does get blamed a lot for all of nsw struggles the last decade or so, he has played a big part in those struggles but it’s not all his fault. IMO the nswrl is still a bunch of dinosaurs looking after themselves which had held us back massively with the club rivalries in nsw, old boys club and all that. Ray dib just oversaw the complete f**king ruin that is Canterbury right now and somehow ends up on the nswrl board. You can’t tell me that’s an organisation striving for success. Daley should’ve been punted in 15 when we conceded 50 points in a decider, but the old boys wouldn’t do it and that leads to a disgraceful series loss last year(with Daley still picking from the same 25 players he had been for years besides teddy). Add up all those piss poor decisions from the top down in nsw you can see why we ended up losing so much, well that and three future immortals.

    I just hope Cordner can create this much agitation tomorrow night as the mere mention of his name has done in this thread.

    Cordner is the biggest fall over the line merchant. Like a talentless Steve Menzies
