I have no complaints with Gagai, he's a solid player. The only player who is on the maybe replace list, is O'Neil. I don't know what other options we have but I believe Will Chambers should be back soon-ish? If so he should get his spot back.
I wasn't sold on Gagai after game 3 last year given we won by 50 points, even though he was excellent.
But he was excellent again tonight in a low scoring, tough, dour contest. He made the most metres of any player, scored QLD's only try and was really solid in defence. He totally backed up the selectors decision to pick him.
Like most, I was quite worried about him and O'Neill paired together on the right side, but he definitely went better than I expected, although he still looked a bit dodgy in defense. Great intercept to keep the blews out, even if it meant 6 more tackles for NSW.
