QLD have confirmed that they won't use the loophole to get Wallace to play if suspended by the judiciary.

I remember being bewildered when Mal brought in some reserve grader from North Queensland.

His name was Jacob Lillyman and he went onto have a decent Origin career.

I've got no qualms with Glasby, the game won't be won and lost because of him and I expect him to do a solid job off the bench. I certainly feel more comfortable with his selection off the bench than having so many backrows.

The selectors got it so wrong with the team they picked in Game 1. I'm not sure they've done any better for game 2 TBH. The Gavin Cooper selection is poor IMO. Felise Kaufusi playing much better footy and ripe for the picking IMO.

We are going to be screwed for next year if all (which looks likely) of Thurston, Cronk and Thurston retire.

Walters won't confirm that Slater is taking the fullback position.

just saying that they were named in alphabetical order (first time QLD has ever done this) and they would work out where everyone is playing in the next couple of days.

I'm glad they picked an extra prop on the bench but surprised it wasn't Korbin Sims. Korbin will probably get picked if Wallace is rubbed out though.

Wallace won't be there and Glasby IMO is not a great selection.

There is no way Slater plays anywhere else but fullback.

I really hope Slater is on the bench.

We would get the best out of Boyd and Slater that way.

Yeah Wallace will be hard pushed. I'm ok with Glasby. Is a very underrated player that runs hard and is sound in that storm defensive system. Walters just said that is one of the reasons he picked him. He won't get many minutes because of the papalli move which strengthens our middle big time. Kevvy made a point in saying about the 80min factor with Cooper and Gillett so they can rotate the middle more and keep fresh legs. Think it is a smart move
