    I like Chambers being cut. Guy very often doesn't pass the ball when he should whereas O'Neill has a good catch and pass game.

    Hess' hands have been a worry lately. A bit Burgess like. He's immense for a 2nd rower though.

  3. Still too raw IMO, let him debut next season.

    I'm glad i don't have to make that decision. I'd still be tempted to play him. Unlike the Burgii I reckon his hands will get better.

    Chambers has been immense in each Origin match he's played. If he's fit he will be there.

    This is how I'd go. It's tempting to bring in Hess/Munster for Cooper/O'neil though.

    1. Boyd
    2. Oates
    3. Chambers
    4. O'neil
    5. Gagai
    6. JT
    7. Cronk
    8. Napa
    9. Smith
    10. Myles
    11. Thaiday
    12. Gillett
    13. McGuire

    14. Papalii
    15. Cooper
    16. Lillyman
    17. Morgan
  7. GKDonkey

    GKDonkey NRL Captain

    Apparently if you are a true queenslander you trust Slater, so He should still be picked
    That's the problem with ZT
  8. Number6

    Number6 QCup Player

    1. Boyd
    2. Oates (must be in need the meters with a weak pack)
    3. Chambers
    4. Gagai
    5. Holmes
    6. JT
    7. Cronk
    8. Napa
    9. Smith
    10. Papalii
    11. Cooper
    12. Gillet
    13. McGuire
    14. Morgan (no better options at moment [only if Milf could defend...] and can come on as lock after 30 mins and let McGuire help cover Prop)
    15. Hess
    16. Lillyman
    17. Thaiday (might have to do some prop work given options are so short since Scott injured)
    18. Myles (by sheer incumbency)

    Slater not done enough. Been out too long for incumbency and has been defensively caught on wing before. Could use him as a super sub in a crunch with Boyd able to play 1-6 if injuries and slater to fullback but don't see the point due to age and positional chaos.

    Going to be tough this year undersized and short on top quality props, centres and lock. Second row isn't even that great unless someone can remind Gillet how to attack and Hess stands up. Morgan has been plum average and is showing how good Jt makes him look, if anyone Corey Norman is playing like next in line for halves and that is a worry. Need to inject some youth to avoid the shock next year with big questions about if or would Cronk, Scott, Inglis, Slater, Thaiday, Myles be eligable or good enough for next year.

    Next prop in line is tough. Reluctantly on form might be Wallace but suspect he would be badly exposed in Origin. Next year ESE ESE if continues to develop and doesn't get second year syndrome.

    I said it when he was at the Pride. Lowe just has something about him. He is like Mogg he would do a great job. He was terrific last night off the bench and had a great impact.

    That's in queensland
  14. Scott Bolton really is putting his hand up for selection.

    Kevvie has some tough choices to make.

    Wallace will feature in this years Origin series I feel sure. We've plenty to choose from this year.

    Surely Myles will fuck off this year. Bloke has been excellent for us in the past, but he's playing in the NSW Cup at the moment. Lots of unfancied forwards putting their hands up at the moment though.
  17. Myles will be one of the first picked, and I won't have any problem if he is.

    Myles always does the job for QLD. His form in club land hasn't been good for years, but he always grows an extra leg for QLD.

    Maybe a starting role perhaps :shhhhhhhhhhhhosh:

    Regardless of unbreakables fate, if Wallace was to be picked, surely he'd start as he isn't that impact style player that Sammy and Papalli are, but more so in the Scott mould.
  20. Sproj


    Really? He was pretty good off the bench for us the last two years and was what started the whole debate about @Unbreakable quitting the forum.
