Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Should also get in Foran's ear that the Aussie number 6 is his if he wants it and to come to NSW while he's at it Or pull the Adrian Lam rule and pick him for the Blues anyway

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Nah see difference is we have plenty of 5/8's better than Foran for Australia

But srsly, in an ideal world, I'd be looking at something like this for Origin 1...

Dugan

Uate J. Morris Lawrence Jennings

Soward

DCE

Douglas Ennis Hunt

Leoroy Lahrs Lewis

Gallen

Subs: Bird, Farah, Watmough, White

Or something like that. Fuck Snowden or Weyman right off. Possibility of Gidley replacing Farah which is fair, and you can't rule out Hayne getting picked on one of the wings aswell as Brett Morris, just feel that Jennings could do a job there and it'd be hard for him to get in the centres over Morris and Lawrence. Kinda unlucky on Ben Creagh aswell but he's not exactly a forward who strikes fear into oppositions.

Winning a premiership and succeeding in the Origin arena are two vastly different propositions. It's apples and oranges.

Lol at all the form junkies wanting DCE ahead of Cronk. Itís laughable. Picking Cronk ahead of Thurston a few years ago would have been the wrong thing to do, no matter how out of form Thurston was. Picking DCE ahead of Cronk now is the wrong thing to do.

Origin is THE trial for test selection. Playing a handful of good club games in a row shouldnít earn you a test birth. Itís ludicrous. Thatís why the Australian team should be filled with players like Johnson, Harrison and Myles.

Carney or Campese are matchwinners, Soward isn't.
I agree with this. If your halves canít create for the rest of your team, youíve got the wrong halves. These are the two positions were I would primarily choose attack at the expense of defence, but only within reason. This is also precisely why I donít feel the need for ball playing forwards in Origin. I would go defensive workers, all day.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Myles should be nowhere near the test team.

Ball playing forwards in Origin aren't bad. The side needs balance. You can stuff a team full of defenders and expect them to score points. Fensom would be a great player in Origin but i wouldn't play Fensom with Hindmarsh (for arguments sake). They've both workhorses, they'll both make a ton of tackles but you need more balance in the lineup. Queensland can get away with having a bunch of forwards who are only good defenders because their backline is stunning. Anyone in the Queensland backline would walk into a NSW jumper.

Tips - Tigers, Broncos, Storm, Cowboys, Warriors, Raiders, Souths, Manly

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Hodges will be injured come Origin anyways, as he usually is.

Tonga is ridiculously underrated. I'd take him for NSW in a heartbeat.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

I think DCE needs to realise that when he signed his contract, he wasn't a first grader, and wasn't expected to go so well, and that's why he was being paid what he is. You can't change the salary of a set contract. Can't help but think that, whilst he's a good footballer, he's being a petulant little prat about this.
