I know he fluffed a couple of tries, but Feldt had the beating to To'o from kicks every time. He isn't usually that bad with his hands, we didn't exploit that enough.
He's just a slow ass plodder. Having the ball raked by Trell was the killer for me.

Our best 17 isn't that far away from them at all.
Mmmm, our forwards got bullied and who else comes in? Grant and Ponga will help but seem to be always injured and we'll need a lot of these guys to lift massively. Our backline too isn't that flash either. We need to find some decent centres and metre eating wingers as we have nothing and no strike out wide.

I know footy is a funny game but if NSW play it smart (which is always debatable) I think their best 17 (and depth) is a fair bit stronger than our best 17.

I think our forwards at full availability can be a lot better.

We definitely didn't exploit that enough and I put that on the halves.

I dont think we did a cross field kick to Feldt or Coates until the second half (the one where Feldt ended up over Too's shoulders but knocked it on)... instead we kept running it on 5th tackle to try and bash them in the corner, only to relieve the pressure by allowing a 40m set and Cleary to bomb it back downfield.

I had completely forgotten about the mismatches on the wings until Munster finally kicked one over to Feldt... and even then the kicks were too low.

Val and Gagai in back line
Ponga/Brimson, Munster, Grant/Reed - Walsh and Walker in the future.

It’s just a halfback and 2 backs that we are really lacking.
It's serviceable but I just don't think they're in NSW's league. As I said, you never know and NSW might go into full tard mode, but we'll need a lot of things to go our way.

It’s just about shutting down their backs. Easier said than done obviously but only 1 of their starting forwards cracked 100m while almost all of their backs went past 150m.

Their backline is all time and it’s unfortunate that QLD back depth has never been worse.

To be fair, they've won 3 of 4 of the last series haven't they? They're on their way.
If all of qld’s top players are available and with the right coaching, I don’t see nsw going 8 series in a row.


One Set ☝️

Looks like the cancer of V'landys ball has now ruined the great arena of Origin. Fantastic.

No arguments there.

They showed last year they can compete tbf. Their depth is better, but there isn't much between the two best 17's

They lived offside in the first 2 tackles of every set. It was awful footy.

Also, I wonder how much of this NSW team being the generation of kids who had to sit through 8 years of watching their team get decimated. They grew up in an era of suffering and have a lot more passion in the jersey then their previous counterparts? Whereas our boys grew up thinking all you have to do to be a QLD legend is put on the jersey.

These players should never play for Qld again:
Kyle Feldt (never should have played in the first place tbh)
DCE
Andrew McCullough
Felise Kaufusi

I'm leaving Xavier off this list because he's young and if he can get some guidance at Melbourne he might come good in time.

Macca was so bad in attack, just an absolute meme. I knew in the first 15 minutes when he killed set after set anywhere close to the NSW line QLD were no chance.

The thinking sounds right in theory - start with Macca then bring on Hunt when the defence is tired - except for two things - 1. QLD needed early points if they were to be any chance, and 2. NSW don't get tired, their interchange is excellent.

If Holmes nailed that pass then it could’ve been 6 all but instead the Blues go up 12 nil.
I would’ve picked Corey Allan out of NSW cup at fullback over Holmes.

I’m sure he had a decent night watching it from home with a beer in hand. You meant Oates right?
