State of Origin Captain
- Mar 5, 2008
That's interesting. I would've had him around the bottom of my ranking. Not that he played badly or anything. I just thought he looked a bit slower than everyone else. It was an outstanding team performance. I wouldn't be dropping anyone or changing anything.
I suspect whoever you watched intently last night, you'll be thinking they put in a MOTM worthy performance.
That said, Reynolds owns this team. I defy anyone to name a better buy in the history of rugby league. In my opinion he has leapfrogged Cleary to be the NRL's most valuable player. I also think if you're not picturing Selwyn as the future Kangaroos fullback, you might be undervaluing him.
I agree Reynolds owns this team and for mine, that ownership is what counts. Unlike at Souths, here he can be himself, play footie unrestricted by a strange Souths game plan which effectively constrained what he could do, as Souths are now discovering.
As far as Cleary goes, I reckon Reynolds is the smarter player with youth on his side. Much prefer him to Cleary.
It's also good to see everyone enjoying themselves out there. Big big difference to recent years.
