Well in terms of the overall result it wouldn't have made too much difference. DCE was rubbish and there side wasn't near the blues level. Holmes at fullback and Kyle Feldt on the wing were out of there depth as well.Would've gone better with an Origin debutant you reckon? Does the fact they won game three prove Ben Hunt is the best hooker in Origin? You merkins have a lot to learn about analysis.
But realistically McCullough only got picked due to injuries with Grant and Mahoney.
The highest rating i could find online for McCullough given out was a 6/10.
Mahoney would have played game 2 if he was fit.
In fact he should have played game 1.
Green stuffed up by starting Harry Grant who imo isn't a proven starting number 9 yet and leaving Mahoney out. QLD point of difference could have been Grant coming off the bench like last year decider. Even Cameron Smith said QLD should have gone that way.
Ben hunt is probably a better player at dummy half then halfback anyway especially since the 2015 GF. Not saying he is the best but is a better player there.
He is an easy target because of his pay packet and he dropped the GF that everyone remembers him for
