Yip, and it's a blessing, the dude over rated.

yea just read the match report. i expect Lewis to line up 4 NSW but the others are in a bit of trouble.

id have Tariq Sims backing up Lewis

Josh Morris backing up Jennings

NSW dont have a another utility tho to cover Gidley. Maybe Hayne off the bench then

need some bigger forwards to combat qlds monster pack. its been reported thats why bennett got mason at the knights, he knows size matters. gallen, stewart, bird, watmough and even mannah arent big guys compared to qld forward pack

farrahs had his chance, i was a big supporter but he is too inconsistent. id stick with ennis.

glad gidley is out, unlucky for him but there are better players in the positions he covers. imo he was kept on last year because he was vice captain.

1. Dugan
2. Uate
3. Morris
4. Lawrence
5. Hayne
6. Carney
7. Wallace
8. Tamou
9. Farah - to play 80
10. Gallen
11. Lewis
12. Bird
13. Stewart

14. ???
15. Williams
16. Simms
17. Woods

Pearce despite doing bugger all will most likely get picked over Wallace who is in a team that is 2nd on the table, and in the top tier for Dally M. So yea I'm hopping Pearce get's injured too.

peter wallace from the broncs needs a shoot now
gidds is out one of the best halves in the game
and they will need another kicker.good foil off

Yeah good teams but agree with most of the above- gotta find room for hayne- anywhere in the backline- doesn't matter. Turiq Simms is a wrecking ball- if they don't pick him they deserve to lose and I'd have weyman there too.

Not a big Pearce fan myself but the thing he has going for him is an existing combination with carney. Plus must admit he's been good the last couple of weeks

nsw:
1. stewart
2. hayne
3. Jennings
4. cooper (not sure if hes still available)
5. uate
6. carney
7. pearce
8. gallen
9. ennis
10. learoyd lars
11. lewis
12. creagh
13. stewart

14. mason (looked pretty destructive in his first game back.. and hes big)
15. rose (bigger)
16. williams (a wrecking ball)
17. bird

crazy bench, but its pure impact with bird as cover for halves and lewis able to cover outside backs in case of injury

Yea, it was good the first year round but I keep getting visions of last season where the two just didn't combine well, at all. For mine Carney needs a steady head and Wallace will provide that. Pearce game is just too up and down for my liking.

Wallace
Tamou

Merrin

Watmough

Hayne you would think has to fit in some where and I'm picking an old style Blues team with a half at Hooker, bearing in mind no Blues Hooker has put their hand up for instant selection and looks like Buderus is injured..

QLD 2012 IMO.

1.Billy Slater 2.Darius Boyd 3.Greg Inglis 4.Justin Hodges 5.Brent Tate/Willie Tonga 6.Johnathan Thurston 7.Cooper Cronk

8.Petero Civoniceva 9.Cameron Smith (c) 10.Dave Shillington 11.Nate Myles 12.Sam Thaiday 13.Ashley Harrison

14.Ben Hannant 15.Matt Scott 16.Dave Taylor 17.Daly Cherry-Evans 18:Matt Gillett

NSW 2012 IMO.

1.Jarryd Hayne 2.Akuila Uate 3.Michael Jennings 4.Chris Lawrence 5.Josh Morris 6.Todd Carney 7.Mitchell Pearce

8.Paul Gallen (c) 9.Robbie Farah 10.James Tamou 11.Glenn Stewart 12.Anthony Watmough 13.Luke Lewis

14.Kade Snowden 15.Trent Merrin/Aiden Tolman 16.Tariq Sims 17.Ryan Hinchcliffe 18:peter Wallace

Queensland pretty much business as usual, same consistency in selection , probably the only debateable issue will be who takes Yow Yeh's position out of Tate/Willie Tonga,Dane Nielsen or maybe Dale Copley..

NSW I've gone for Hinchcliffe on the bench in place of Gidley, I think Hinchcliffe's an Origin type player, mistake free, creative & a strong defender. Being under the constant demand of excellence & presence of Cam Smith he would have intimate knowledge of The Storm's (big 3) set piece moves & when their likely to utilise them during games.

I know one thing based on the record series losses NSW have suffered. They can't bash their way past Qld. And if they don't try something different, like selecting someone with flair in the forwards. Another series loss it will be. Mateo would be my pick, as i believe in the company of great players he'll shine.

personally i think the exact opposite. nsw has always played smaller , more mobile forwards and are continually physically dominated in the forward packs.

Where do you think Greg Bird and Paul Gallen got their nick name "The Bruise brothers" from? Just because they havn't been successful doesn't mean they havn't tried. Its well known, the tactics, i mean. Why do you think Mateo got a City start? They're seriously considering changes their tactics. As they should after 6 record series defeats.
