Peats should have been there regardless.
I was with you until last nights game Pete, Peats was beaten way too easily too many times. NSW are in a quandary with the 9 selection. It seems as though have gone cold on Farah and were opting for Wallace because they are too scared too debut an unknown quantity.

I get the impression that Wallace was ahead of Peats, but even after last night's flat performance my preference would be for Nathan who seems to pose more of a threat and summing up the situation.

As good as Wallace is, he's never been great at making decisions. I'd imagine going to Subway with him would be a nightmare.

So Dobbo knows intricate details on the team list but doesn't know if Walters is planning on picking Slater yet? Interesting. To me that indicates Slater may not be picked.

1. Boyd
2. Oates
3. Chambers
4. O'Neill
5. Gagai

Would fit the "loyalty" paradigm.

Edit: Alternatively O'Neill misses out and the back line is like..

1. Slater
2. Boyd
3. Chambers
4. Gagai
5. Oates

Like the Loyalty backs. If Slater can be trusted to defend on the wing would it be worthwhile to start Boyd at back for his defensive organisation and give Slater a roaming commission in attack and then move Slater to fullback toward end of each half when forwards get tired? Or just upset structure too much?

Slater is the superior traditional fullback but Boyd has defensive organisation (except chasing the frickin grubber) and that out the back pass in his favour. Plus Slater is getting on so might be better to use in short spurts at origin pace.

We're relying on Dobbo for any news now? :whatwouldjareddo:
He's useless when it comes to rumours, but when it comes to confirming squad members and the likes he's usually accurate. He wouldn't claim Oates was 100% in if he wasn't. Especially with the side being named in a little over 12 hours, can't pull the old "things change bro".

I'm warming to Munster if Thurston is not fit. Something about him. Combinations also a bonus

5. Dane Gagai
6. Johnathan Thurston

12. Matt Gillett
13. Josh McGuire

14. Michael Morgan
15. Josh Papalii
16. Dylan Napa

Lillyman goes like a busted every year for the Warriors and comes in and kills it for QLD. Not sure him starting though. Bloke is loose around the ruck

Whats the chance the "SHOCK" squad member won't be all that much of a shock ...

Especially if they aren't in the 17
