Oh plz like Pearce is any better. I've never seen a halfback void of creativity like Pearce is. Absolute trash.

We're not winning anyways so in the end I guess it doesn't matter

Pearce isn't much better, but he is better. In an ideal world they'd select Maloney or...or...yeah, NSW really are void of quality halfbacks. If only DCE was born south of the border.

Whatever happens Game 1 I just hope we keep the same 17 for Game 2, and not swap players continually - Queensland stay strong to their 17, we should too, and it may lead us closer to a series win (although I'd much prefer to see Dugan, Ferguson, Tolman, Douglas in the side). 7 days and 30 minutes until it kicks off - fuck the selection shit, bring on the game. HYPED already.

BTW i didnt know that Creigh had stopped running from his last incounter with big sam?? how do u pick him again?

No idea why Creagh gets picked, when there's several in front of him form wise - Hoffman, Hinchcliffe, Sims, Watmough, Houston, Mateo, Galloway, Woods, Fensom, Learoyd-Lahrs, for starters. An absolute hack who always goes missing in big games.

Merrin has been phenomenal for the Saints and deserves his selection. We need a hardened, dedicated runner who can match it with the big guns, and he's that person.

Our pack might be small, but it's mobile. Queensland only have size in Petero, Scott and that cunt Hannant, whilst we are equipped with Tamou, Gallen & Merrin. The backrow of Bird, G.Stewart & Lewis offer us a lot more than Thaiday, Myles & Harrison. The Maroons big threat off the bench, Taylor, is negated by T-Rex, who before the suspension was the most damaging backrower in the competition, and made mince meat out of the Poms, Kiwis and Welsh last year in the 4 nations.

For mine, the forward battle is mouth watering and pretty even. QLD have the advantage at hooker, with Smith being above Farah, and the rest of the world. The halves, well Cronk shits all over Pearce, but Carney and Thurston is even money. Fullback is intriguing, as Stewart has been great when he's bothered this year, and Slater is just the same old damaging self. Tate and Boyd on the wings for QLD doesn't phase me as Boyd has been absolute gash at the Knights, and Tate is prone to the odd ball drop or 5. Uate should dominate his battle, but Hayne may struggle and be a defensive weakness if he goes searching for the ball. The centres, well, that's a great battle looming between Morris & Inglis, as well as Hodges & Jennings. In regards to Jennings/Hayne, I'm hoping they replicate what Inglis did 2 years ago (play like shit for club side, cop shit from media/fans, play like a beast in game 1 of origin).

-------------------

Fucking Tigers, they really are pissing me off this season. We have a great side, but cannot play 80 minutes to save ourselves - deplorable opening half, some razzle dazzle saving of our asses to start the 2nd, and just holding on enough at the end. Sure, we're back to 5-5 and in the 8, but we need to improve quite a lot if we're going to challenge for the top 8 at the end of the season. Thankfully Ellis & Heighington aren't far away from a return, which should make our pack stronger, but we need to settle on a fucking halves combo for the remainder of the season (Marshall/Humble suits me) and leave Lawrence in the centres where he belongs - he is not a 5/8 and I wish Sheens would stop trying to force it.

Did you seriously just say Carney was on the same level as Thurston? Come on man, Carney's playing brilliantly this season but he's not on JT's level yet as JT is consistently excellent and Carney goes from mediocre to great to anonymous to shit to great, he's so hot and cold.

QLD are winning this series, wouldn't shock me if they clean sweep it.

When Carney is hot he's level with Thurston. Mind you, that's just on club footy, and he's still untested in Origin.

Carney is brilliant but as Adam said he's more inconsistant than Thurston who is usually outstanding.

Um, why the fuck is everyone being so negative? Ffs. Thurston was in a crappy Cowboys team from 2008 to 2010 but when it came to Origin, he stood up, and even got a man of the series.

Hayne and Jennings are in the exact same spot. Origin is a different type of animal. Calling Farah rubbish? Wow, really? I just hope that Farah, Pearce, Hayne and Jennings prove you wrong come Wednesday night.

I live in Queensland, I go for the Blues..you know what Queensland does when they're team is selected they embrace it like it's a new born in their family, they're nuts about Origin up here.

Just embrace the team, and give it a shot..just one shot.

They've had plenty of shots. Farah is garbage, Smith is three times the player he is. Hell even Ballin is twice the player. Thurston was still in form through 08-10, thats a huge difference to how Hayne and Jennings are playing now. They're both out of form and Hayne is the most inconsistant 'star' in the game. Pearce is garbage, can't believe Mortimer doesn't get a game over him at the Roosters. Picking jokers like Creagh over Watmough is ridiculous. We'll get beaten as per usual.

Cut some slack on Farah, whilst Smith is eons ahead of him, he is an attacking hooker who can help create opportunities around the ruck and provide a 3rd kicking option (does it better than Ennis). Tigers fandom blinding my judgement, probably, but he's not too shabby at club level and with guys like Gallen, T-Rex, Tamou & Lewis running off him in origin, look out.

Hayne is not a star in my eyes. He had an 8-week purple patch of form in 2009 and was heralded as the new messiah, and since then has done absolute jack shit aside from 1 or 2 good games here and there. An absolute hack who is a wannabe Marshall and will get found out again in origin. Why someone like Blake Ferguson or even Brett Morris wasn't picked over that cunt I'll never know (nice backtrack from Stuart as well, i.e he isn't a winger and won'e be picked there).

Pearce is our best halfback option though - Wallace is trash, Mullen is beyond awful, and Campese is injured. I guess you could try Maloney, but shifting him to halfback might not work out too well.
