    Not a great deal of consensus among that lot. Two of Keary-Cleary-Moses appears to be the best they can do. Fortunately there's four months before the team is picked. I believe the sides will just about pick themselves by then. Lots of players will be going into the workshop for end-of-season maintenance.

    Most likely it will be Keary / Cleary. Wighton possibly on the bench as a utility.
    Moses to miss out.

    That's provided none of them are injured.

    Who I’d pick
    Wighton / Cleary

    who they will pick
    Keary / Cleary

    If Cleary is out or making poor choices with Tik Tok videos again..

    Id pick

    Wighton / Pearce.

    I would have Cleary and Pearce ahead of Moses Mitchellson by leap years.

    Pearce played well last SoO series and he's playing well for Newcastle.
    Most importantly for Origin is that Pearce is solid in defense.

    For the sake of all that is good, don't let it be Moses. Dear God no ....

    As long as it's not Moses, I'd be okay with the above.

    Wighton has to start after his series last year. Centre if not in the halves.

    I wouldn't be picking Jack at 6 - far too big a risk. 3 is his spot at rep level.

    If it's not one of Cleary or Moses at 7, who else can goalkick? Even if anyone could it wouldn't be close to Cleary's level - he wins that battle against Moses and couple that with his defence, I think he's the favourite.
