Why should we embrace a team that continually gets filled with players based on name, media hype and favouritism over talent and form? It's gotten to the stage where you just can't anymore because year after year it happens and mistakes are never learned from. Pearce is fucking custard and quite possibly the worst halfback to represent at Origin level (yes Mullen is better than him overall, atleast Mullen can create something, Pearce just kicks the ball and hopes).

It's sad that 10 years ago we had Johns and Barrett with the luxury of Kimmorley, Gower and Anasta all in reserve we were spoiled for quality halves options (yeah ok Anasta wasn't that great but his defensive work in the 05 series was amazing, allowed Johns to run the game) and now we have jack shit. Then we get fairies like Ben Creagh who will get dominated by the QLD pack again and Merrin picked over decent props like Dan Hunt, Luke Douglas, Aiden Tolman and even Brett White would be a better choice.

Yes, Pearce is garbage, but he's the best that we have to pick from with our current stocks. I'd much rather him over that red headed useless cunt Wallace, or Mullen. Our best bet would be to get Carney to play halfback and have Maloney at 6, but in big games Maloney tends to go missing, so it's not really that good of an option. They could take a real punt and pick Sam Williams or McCrone from Canberra, but their youth and inexperience may be a hinderance.

10 years ago we were beyond spoilt and did nothing to continue the development of our players (QLD are developing their guys - when JT and Cronk move on, DCE steps in). Ben Creagh getting selected is an absolute joke and I've made that known since his debut - he's been gash in every Origin game he's played, has been gash all year for the Dragons, and must be great at gobbies or taking it up the arsebecause I see no other reason as to why he got picked, especially with guys like Fulton, Learoyd-Lahrs & Watmough (for starters) not getting looked at. Merrin has been in great form, better than Hunt, so his selection is justified. Tolman and Douglas missing out is a shame, not sure how they can't get a look in.

When Victorians can see this, and our selectors can't, well, therein lies the issue with our side.

Pearce and maloney was the halves combo i'd pick with Hinchcliffe at 9 and Dugan at 1. Stewart is a good option and perhaps a better player but i want NSW to develop a side that can play together for years. Dugan fits the bill far better than Stewart. Watmough not getting selected because they "want to go in a different direction" is hilarious. Especially when a week later they ask him to be 18th man. Such a cop out excuse from Stuart who wouldn't coach an under 10's team. Creagh is soft as hell, barely makes metres and isn't a great defender either. Williams and Gallen better have a blinder otherwise our forwards are getting pasted. Glenn Stewart in the side makes Buhrer's selection even more questionable. I like Buhrer, i think he has a fantastic future in the game but i'm not sure why he's there. There are better backrow options, ie the guy who keeps him out of the Manly starting side in Watmough, or workhorses like Fensom. There are also better utility options like Hinchcliffe. Stewart can play 5/8th or centre if needed through injury, and if you had Hinchcliffe you have a backrower who can play hooker. I hope he has a good game to prove me wrong because if he gets dropped after a game that will seriously dent his confidence which isn;t good for us.

Buhrer is another that definitely shouldn't be there. Really lost for words with NSW these days.

Indeed. He plays a similar game to Glenn Stewart, i fail to see what he brings to the side other than being able to cover a lot of positions. He's a good, developing NRL player but i'd pick Watmough over him every time. As does Manly

Queensland at odds of $1.50 last i checked. thats got to be worth chucking $100 on. 50% return in a day. easy money.

$8 Slater for first try is juicy odds although Uate at $11.25 or Jennings/Morris at $16.25 are pretty good value.

Queensland 1-12 is $2.75

NSW Scores 11-20 Points is $2.20 which isn't bad. Might duck down and chuck some money on that.

Might in fact go chuck 10 on Slater/QLD 1-12 which is playing $17. Not bad.

Queensland 1-12 $20 at 2.75
Inglis first try scorer $10 at 7
Queensland to win $20 at 1.55
Slater first try scorer/Qld 1-12 $10 at 17

Would be quite happy with a NSW win though
