Myles and Harrison started all three games. Harrison played a big part in unleashing Inglis down the left in 2009. He’s deceptively creative. Myles has contributed as a starter and a ball carting forward off the bench, particularly when the team has been light in front rowers.

Harrison and Myles are far superior defenders to Thaiday. If anything, he’s a liability. Myles, Harrison and Johnson is the best back row that can be picked. These are your no frills men who win you SOO contests.

Yes, you’re right. NSW are so moronic they would fail to even select SOO material like Myles and Harrison, in favour of picking turnstiles like Watmough and Stewart, and penalty machines like Gallen. It is silly to think that a guy like Lance Thompson never got a run. He is the perfect Origin style player. He would have played many games for QLD. It highlights the difference in approach between the two states… and why QLD continue to get it right.
Lance Thompson? Please, oh please, select Queensland side this year.

Yes, won in the forwards off the work of Scott, Petero & Thaiday. Harrison is garbage - was for Souths, is for Gold Coast and Queensland. He's fortunate to be selected in a great team, but is a shit player. Myles is the same.

Parker accomplished more off the bench than Harrison or Myles did in all 3 games. And no, Lockyer/Thurston created the opportunity for Harrison to push the pass to Inglis. Harrison didn't spark shit.

I'd rather trust Thaiday to stop a defender than Harrison or Myles. Johnson should have been in over Harrison & Myles.

That penalty machine single handedly embarrassed your forwards in Sydney last year.

Queensland got it right on their halves combination. Lockyer directed those forwards around, as did Thurston. Smith's work from 9 was also impecable. We'll see the change come May.

If Stewart is an average second rower, then I shudder to think of what a brillianr second rower is. It certainly isn't a sack of shit Like Ashley Harrison.
