You try and justify Grant's selection based on stats. You try and pass Myles and Harrison off as better than guys like Stewart & Watmough based on stats. Stats look pretty on paper, but when they get applied to a game situation, often leave you exposed and out of your element, which is what I fear will happen with Grant (and happens with Myles/Harrison).

Penrith games, something you obviously mustn't be doing.

fuck yeah, good win but we should've won by at least 20. Queensland were awful.

Tim Grant played well, i'll give him credit for that but the big difference this game was Carney playing to his ability. Our attack looked excellent and our defense was solid but there were a few nervy moments at the end.

Farah making 66 tackles was a huge effort but in one sense it showed how poor Queensland were. Farah wasn't a weak link in defense, nor is he our main outlet in attack but they kept going to him like he's Sandow or something. Partly due to Cronk not being their to guide them in that 2nd half, speaking of which that was the very definition of penalty try. Unbelievable that it wasn't given, might as well not have the rule if you're not giving that.

Luke Lewis and Glenn Stewart made some bellringers in defense which was always great to see and having that extra prop in the side was helpful. Morris had a great game in the centres in both attack and defense. Brett Stewart has clearly lost his pace after 2 knee injuries but still had enough to get 2 crucial tries. All in all a good win and i hope they can do it again up in Brisbane.

Queensland - 70% possession and territory in the second half, with the Australian backline, and they manage to score one try, off a kick.

God-tier defence, bring on game 3.

We simply must keep the same 17 and fix up a few niggling issues, i.e Uate learning to catch a bomb, Pearce learning to kick to open field, and we'll make a great contest of it. Queensland missed Thaiday, that much was evident, but we were the better team again and this time got the right result. Refs even had a solid game

uate is awful. Terrible in the air and a liability defensively. Not sure who you could bring in, but they can't do any worse

AGGRESSIVE AS FUCK! Leg drive, carrying defenders, quick play-the-ball, keeps ruck tight in defence, can float wider, quick line speed... all checked. Heíd have spread Hodges nose across his face, too. The only thing Iíd ever be concerned about is Stuartís rotation.

Ja jas at Harrison making more metres than every NSW forward not named Gallen or Bird. Despite not being one of his better performances, you have to love the guy.

Robbie Farah Ė 63 tackles, 0 mistackles. Thatís a manís game, my friends. He did his folks proud.

Harrison missed the tackle on Carney which lead to Stewart scoring under the posts. I love the guy.
