    Scott out, Bird in.

    Or if Reynolds is suspended, straight into 5/8

    No way will they drop Scott. T-Rex can go but odds are injury or suspension will free up space anyway

    me being biased against Hoffman but I though Scott was better than Hoffman IMO. Scott had a few big game tackles which helped NSW.

    T-Rex looked damaging in his limited minutes. better to go with impact as Bird will likely play 80 minutes

    Hoffman and Trex did nothing wrong and Bird is a bit of a loose cannon. I say leave him out barring injury

    In place of Williams. Bird just adds so much to our pack.

    Bird is a beast at Origin level. I'd bring him in for Scott.

    Scott missed a few tackles, I'd leave him out. Bird must come in.

    We drop the player who never would have played game 1 if Bird wasn't suspended

    T-Rex is slow. He should really come off a run up.

    Bird to replace T-Rex or Scott

    Bird is one of NSW best ever.

    He comes straight back in. Guaranteed.

    And probably for Beau Scott who was almost single handedly responsible for 4 line breaks.

    Beau Scott was chosen for his apparent god like 'defence'.. funny that he was solely responsible for 3 of qld's line breaks... drop him
