it's being reported that McLean will be coming into the 22 for game 2.

the reports are there will be 8 changes to the game 1 team (only 1 of them forced) ... HOLY PANIC STATIONS BATMAN

Api, Talakai, Crichton and Trbojevic.

this is the biggest over-reaction to a loss in Origin history.

i've never seen so many unforced changes to a team that only lost by 6 points.

I realise teams have had mass changes in the past, but that has been in response big injury tolls or 30 point losses ... not a close contest that was literally in the balance until the final second

Freddy and Brandy have lost the plot

No Addo Carr again? Good news for Qld.

They had a similar reaction back in 2019 and went onto win by 32.

They dropped Latrell Mitchell, Cody Walker, Angus Crichton, Nick Cotric & Josh Morris. On top of that they lost Klemmer and Haas to injury as well. Then in a stroke of luck, they were originally going to go with a Pearce/Cleary combination until Pearce got injured the day of the announcement. So they rushed Maloney in and he was close to the best player on the field.

JAC likely didn't get picked because he's not a winger who can make many PCM, that seems to be the main argument about his effectiveness...but I can't remember him ever being driven back in Origin, he always managed to find space or space created for him and his early sets often were even more effective.

Talakai is going to get a bath, he made a name of himself by running riot over Morgan Harper then the following week he was comprehensively shown to be a backrower running at smaller men when he met Kotoni Staggs

This is desperation personified from Brad Fittler

If only Staggs didn’t play for 50mins in game 1 they would have won… how ridiculous. Their forwards were the problem in game one, and Cleary did shit all to bring Staggs into the game.

Freddie rolling the dice.

They jag a win with the help of the refs and he looks like a genius. They'll bronze his scarf.

What’s it say about Cleary if he needs to be surrounded by Penrith teammates to be effective?

Typical NSW over reaction on picks, could be a clean sweep this year.

JAC must of shit in fitlers food
It honestly looks like he just didn't pick him because he didn't want to be called out on how wrong he was for not having him in Game 1, there was situations where QLD where saved because Holmes had more speed then anyone NSW had.
