What sort of rubbish team is this? No Holland, no Montoya, no Lichaa.

The bench looks a bit light to me, especially co sidering it seems likely QLD will name a massive 4 forward bench.....

Crichton shouldn’t be there based on this years form. Hope he lifts

Ditto Cleary

I reckon they'll be okay as Klemmer and Haas both have massive motors and can play long minutes, plus Turbo is basically another prop.

Games too fast to have numerous big boppers
Yah would get eaten alive around the ruck in origin these days

The Wighton selection is strange, deserves a crack but not sure where he comes on if there's no injuries. Love Haas, Murray and Cotric being selected

They always s3lect a utility and that bloke can genuinely play 1-7
Not a drama, prolly not many other players that could play 1-7 and fit in like it’s there own

Not the worse Soo side NSW have put together. Im interested to see how Walker and Cleary go together. Either one have a bad game you would think Keary would come in for game 2...

Glad cotric was selected over Ferguson.

Would have rather have had either finucane or Sims over Crichton

That's what's so attractive about Murray, plan A is bring him on at lock. Plan B, he can cover 1-7 and 9.

Or you just him play up the middle.... like he does for Souths and carves up
And Murray couldn’t cover fullback
And wouldn’t cover centre or half’s close as good as what wighton would

Same argument as Peachey last year though. But if there's no injury where does he come on? Lock? And therefore taking minutes from Murray

Play as every other utility since day dot in origin
Would be a roaming role
All the forwards chosen play big minutes, you don’t need another forward
Better of having him in case of an injury to a back
Those 3 bench forwards plus starting forwards all play massive minutes week in week out

And usually a utility comes on at the expense of your Lock.
