O'Neil has to go. I was against his selection from the start. He's a plodder, far from a rep player. There's plenty of better players out there.

Interested in some thoughts from die hard Broncos fans.
Some of the Broncos greatest outside backs never killed it at origin level.
The likes of Renouf, Sailor even Hodges until the latter part of his origin career all struggled at this level.
Then we see someone like Gagai.. plays solid at club level but looks like a completely different player in the origin arena.
Is it because he plays for a crap team like Newcastle?
How do you think if he wouldve went if he was still at the Broncos?

I think the likes of Renouf and Sailor would have dominated Origin if they were playing in the side QLD have today..

I don't think it has anything to do with which club he plays at. He is just a fierce competitor that has the luxury of playing in one of the best back lines in Rugby League history.

As great as our back line is, it honestly seems like a majority of Dane's big plays are individual brilliance, he just takes it to another level at Origin level like I haven't seen in a long time. Incredible player.

if that want MotM performance I don't know what is.

He has been the player of the series so far. Though if Fifita has another game like game 1 it will be a tough call.

I'd say the game he scored 3 tries was MOM worthy. Probably because I had $2 on him at $151. Still not over that.

Great Wednesday night specialist. He's not the only Ferrari (comes out 3 times a year) I reckon Inglis has got him covered there

Is Gagai the first player from a wooden spoon team to win player of the series?
That is a really good question and I would say highly likely to be true. It is so funny watching him become a completely different player in maroon though because he is a slightly better than average player in a horrible side at Newcastle. He should play for Australia in the WC but won't due to the weird infatuation with Fergusen.

No.

Billy Slater won it in 2010.

While the Sharks weren't wooden spooners at the time when Gallen won it in 2014, they did get their 3rd wooden spoon that very year.

The same with the Cowboys in 2008 when Thurston won it that year, they were joint wooden spooners with the Bulldogs that year.
