Glenn Stewart has officially been ruled out, Beau Scott slots in.

Beau Scott will do great for the Blues. Last year, when he was out for Game 3 and weirdly enough it was Stewart that took his spot in that game, and he was sorely missed last year because Scott put a ton of defensive pressure on the Thurston/Inglis side of the QLD attack. Scott will do great.

While he can and has played 2nd row in the past the Cowboys for the entire year have used Ashton either as a starting prop or off the bench. His average minutes per game is awful as he is behind both Tamou and Scott (both SOO reps). Its easy to make metres off the bench as you know you're going to be playing 40 mins tops. Even when he starts he barely cracks 50 mins. Oh and eligability wise i have no idea who he's eligable for seeing as he played for Fiji, Tariq is declared for NSW and their younger brother is declared for Queensland.
Youíre such a knob. Mate, I know more about footy than you. Donít give me this crap about different positions like Iím fresh out of a womb. Tariq Sims DOES NOT deserves selection as a back rower based on those numbers. You wouldnít understand that seeing as you are unable to understand club form should lead to Origin, Origin form should lead to Australian selection.

Harrison is a big, big loss. Much bigger than this BS the media is spinning with Stewart. Mal should have relented and picked DJ, but Parker will more than suffice. The man’s a beast. It’s a shame he’s never made the impact he should have in Origin due to limited opportunity/players in front of him.

Parker, club level:

2010- 139.2 metres, 35.8 tackles
2011- 138.3 metres, 41.8 tackles
2012- 133.5 metres, 39.8 tackles

Insane! Not one player comes within a bull’s roar.

Clearly i know more than you when you're trying to compare Ashton and Tariq Sims You said Tariq doesn't deserve selection, and i agreed with that you. Can you even fucking read? However you then go on to say why Ashton should be considered. They play in different positions you muppet thus how the fuck does the media bigging up on Tariq have any bearing on Ashton at all? Ashton's numbers would be compared with Grant, Merrin, Tamou etc.

Not only that but they're completely different stylistically. You seem to have no concept of that at all. You talk about backrowers and their stats. Do you consider that some are ball playing backrowers like Glenn Stewart and Bird? No. Do you consider that some are tackling machines like Harrison and Fensom? No. Do you consider that some are workhorses like Gallen, Parker, Myles or Hindmarsh? No. Do you consider that some are wide running backrowers like Watmough or close running backrowers like Hindy, Houston or Tariq Sims? No. You're purely concerned with stats rather than what consititutes an effective team.

Origin > international football. The best footballing country on earth is Australia, the biggest game is Origin, Until Kiwi's stop getting selected by the teams then the international game will never grow. Likewise with the Super League, they should focus on player development rather than being a retirement fund for washed up NRL stars.

Your lack of basic reading skills is incredible. Not once did I say Ashton deserved selection. His numbers were provided purely for comparison, seeing as he’s generally thought of as Tariq’s inferior, older brother. Next time, I’ll post everything in separate posts for challenged individuals like you.

I love how you’re set against Harrison. You omit him from the workhorses? You must have forgotten when I set you straight with his offensive stats in Origin. What was it you said, you didn’t even notice him? Funny the things you miss.

No, origin football as a trial for international selection, you muppet. Harrison ahead of any of your Manly back row, because he performs in Origin, time and time again. Origin > club. Mind you, Harrison also has the numbers at club level, as I so happily pointed out to you earlier in one of our lopsided interactions.

Gallen says bye; doesn’t match the defensive performance. You won’t find 130+ metres, 35+ tackles. That’s staggering stuff.

Also, unlike you, I’m often absent from this board. It may take me days to reply to some of your sillier stuff. Keep trying, though.

at dismissing Gallen's defensive capabilities. Further proof that you haven't the slightest clue what you're on about.

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

It's as good a time as ever for NSW, with Slater out, Harrison out, Taylor out, JT low on form, Inglis and Hodges both carrying niggly injuries and Thaiday's shoulder is still less than 100%. We have virtually the same core team and a renewed vigour and confidence. If we can whether the opening avalanche that Queensland will no doubt unleash, and can get into a grinding type of game and exploiting our chances, we're in with a huge chance. I'm not predicting a score, I'm horrible with that, but it'll be close either way. Queensland, looking for 7 in a row, at Suncorp, with JT & Smith looking to have big games after a quiet series to date, it's going to be one hell of a mountain to climb. I'm hoping that we're Edmond Hilary though, come 10pm on July 4th

Again you fail to understand basic positions. What is the point of comparing Tariq's stats to Ashton's? They play in different positions, the fact that they're brothers is completely and totally irrelevant. I'll say this again for you;

Ashton is a frontrower

Tariq is a backrower

So how are their stats comparable when discussing the merits of Tariq being up for Origin selection?

I like Harrison, i already have 4 names in the workhorses. Do you want me to list every backrower under those examples? I can if you really want, you might learn something.

Origin football is the pinnacle. It isn't a selection trial for international games.

Gallen this season has 26.3 tackles per game and a staggering 198.3 metres per game. His offensive performance more than makes up for it. In 2011 he had an average of 167.75 metres per game.

I hope NSW can finally end this losing streak that we've had..I'm so anxious about this game, haha. The main thing that scares me is Inglis at Fullback, that guy is a freak and it will take a lot to cut him out of the game but the Blues are up to it.

Do I really need to embarrass you further by posting numbers?

Listen, you nugget, Origin selection whilst being the pinnacle should be a selection trial for Australia. Basically, consistent club performances should earn you an Origin start; consistent Origin performances should earn you a NT start. Harrison, Myles and Johnson should have played many, many times for Australia.

It’s like arguing with a brick wall. My argument was 130+ metres, 35+ tackles. Does 26.3 tackles get you there? Can you read?

I find it humorous how the media’s latching on to this. It’s going to take a mighty effort to win in QLD, but as far as they’re concerned NSW’s dynasty has already begun. I think the entire state will be in for a rude shock tomorrow night.
