That post-game interview between Freddy and Cleary just confirmed that Cleary is in the team.
Well, that's one advantage QLD. He's still young, but he seems like the McCullough of halfbacks so far. He might still improve in the future though, who knows.

Mbye is such a weird choice, and I can only assume he got the spot because he can play anywhere in the spine. But can he play anywhere well?

If we’re going with Hunt at hooker, surely we carry a legit hooker on the bench to relieve him if he’s tired, or replace him if there is an injury and he needs to move in to the halves.

I doubt Mbye is going to be able handle minutes as a roaming forward like DCE, Cronk, and Ponga were able to handle. I’d much rather a forward/back utility (Fifita?), or just go with 4 forwards.

Mmmbop is a weird choice, but our previous bench options like Hunt, DCE and Morgan will all be starting, so we don't exactly have a lot of choices either. I don't think Milford covers any more positions than Mbye, and Granville is just shit now. Segeyaro could possibly get a look in for game 2 or 3 if he kills it for the next few weeks, but I doubt it.

Apparently now Mbye has done a groin and is in doubt lol.

Queensland in shambles. Ponga taken off with a facial injury, Arrow torn quad, McGuire still nursing a calf, DCE racing the clock to be fit, no hooker available.

I was legitimately worried he was having a seizure.

Also...

Gus: Queensland didn't win tonight

Fatty: Um...6-4...?
