Well I think that is clear that DCE won't be playing origin ever again, if Hunt is really in, DCE's papers have been clearly stamped.

I'm conflicted about what I want to happen. I want Hunt to have a 2nd-half-vs-raiders so we win (if it's not a sure thing by then), but I also want him to have a Storm game to shut the apologists up once and for all. I kinda get the impression he plays better off the bench anyway - he's played there longer than starting half afaik and he made a big difference playing for Australia there.

Hunt would probably make a great contribution off the bench, but. DCE surely deserves the spot more on form and physical condition, with Hunt only two games back from injury. And how does the Courier Mail know unless someone in the inner circle is leaking.

IF that is true it's a joke. Hunt, right now is undeserving of an origin spot. It's a massive gamble on him producing a game, which we all know he has, but hasn't shown enough of since the GF.

If we lose this series you can trace it back to the selectors right from the start. Picking out of form players when there are options, not only in form but red hot form is unforgivable.

That's a ballsy move from Walters. Hunt only has 2 games he can bring. His A game or his Z game. Big move to pin your hopes on, I assume he will be given no kicking duties.

If correct it's a disgraceful selection. Hunt has not had the consistent top level form that gets you a tight decision over an in form consistent half. It reaks of an old boys clubs if this is the case run by the storm kingpins still bitter at dce in 2014.

DCE isn't a team player. Its all about him. Walters and the rest of the QLD heavies know this. I don't care how good you are, if you cant play like a team in a team sport, then you shouldn't be picked for the team. Smith and Co have spoken with regards to this.
As for Hunt, he is a handy utility. I have faith if picked he can do a job.

Hunt... LOL! Load up on nsw so the loss doesn't hurt as much, boys.

EDIT: I'm praying they mean K Hunt is signing for a bush league comp at the last minute to play Origin.

if we are looking for a bench utility that will probably get very little game time to win the game from us ... then we have bigger problems than Hunt getting selected on the bench
