What more does James Roberts have to do to get selected ... It has been reported that Hayne and Dugan will be the centers for NSW ...

It is great news for QLD that the NSW selectors are still intent on giving them a helping hand
Love to know the reason why Roberts isn't a contender. Just don't get it either.

Considering Roberts' behaviour during the off-season, I don't blame Daley sticking with Duges. Hell, I'd probably pick Bird ahead of Roberts based on the direction of the team.

Until Roberts gets through an entire season without acting up, I wouldn't pick him unless there is a huge injury toll.

This Qld team has been kept pretty secret if the media reports are any indication. I have heard Slater is certain then he is overlooked on a different station also Munster is in then not along with O'neil and a couple of others.
A lot of guessing going on.

With Milford emerging as a likely Cronk / JT replacement for 2018, Bird being a permanent fixture in the Blues side and the decent chance that Roberts & Sims will be featured in the Origin sides in the next 12 months, we're going to have a LOT of players out during Origin next year, and that's without considering the possibility that Cameron Smith also retires, which would likely see McCullough in the box seat to replace him, there's a scenario in which 9 or 10 of our players are playing Origin next year.

1. Boyd (c)
2. Oates
3. Roberts
4. Bird
5. Kahu
6. Milford
7. Nikorima
8. Sims
9. McCullough
10. Blair
11. Thaiday
12. Gillett
13. McGuire

Brenko Lee / Ricky Leutele for the right centre spot, apart from that it looks good, would be a strong team.

I honestly think we (Qld) are in trouble in this first game.

1 While Boyd is all class , Slater is in a class of his own. The best full back I have ever seen. Big mistake leaving him out. He looks fully fit and rearing to go. Boyd should be in the team ,just not fullback.

2 I honestly don't think Milford is ready to play 5/8 in origin. His kicking and his passing game is just not there yet. Beter option would have been Morgan , Slater or Boyd or even DCE. Just hope JT makes it back.

3 Picking Myles is taking the staying loyal thing a bit too far. He is doing nothing at Manly. Hess would have been a much better choice.

4 Its a tossup between Gagai and Holmes , but I would have gone with Holmes.

Disagree with 2 and 4, the other points are bang on.

Milford has that youthful confidence to shine on the big stage and Gagai is a proven QLD superstar.

NRL.com has an article where players list their favourite players from their state and most hated from the other. Luke Keary doesn't even try to disguise himself as a NSW fan. I'm not saying he should be anywhere near the QLD side, but it's insane how he pretty much considers himself a QLDer and has to represent NSW (if he ever got picked that is). They can try to claim Inglis, but he never wanted to play for NSW.
