If the way Lebanon played against Tonga is anything to go by, Freddy may just do a really good job.


Can someone go back and try to find the team list he put out for the media before origin this year? It would be interesting to see who he would've picked had he been coach this year.

Now Pearce is no longer at the Roosters either, that bodes poorly for Qld, he may not get picked.

Backs are questionable but he's pretty spot on with the forwards/bench IMO
Yeah....please pick Wade Graham again.

Now that Gallen has retired, we'll need someone else to give away bonehead penalties. Graham has already got a good head start.

Freddie tried to manipulate the head injury rule in a Lebanon pool game. Mannah on the sideline telling the physio an instruction, nex minut, head bin replacement

please the NSW Origin script has already been written for 2018 ... and i have just happened to have found a copy.

1. before game 1 talk up their chances of finally breaking the QLD dominance
2. Make some laughable selections of out of form or constant failures at Origin level (like Pearce/Hayne)
3. Make omissions of some of the form players in the comp (like Roberts)
4. win game 1 or 2, then talk about how they can now have a "decade of dominance"
5. CHOKE in the decider and allow QLD to retain the shield for another year

Didn't see it mentioned, but Fittler has said that his bolters for next year are Tom Trbojevic, Josh Addo-Carr, Jordan McLean & Tyrone Peachey.. Not to mention his love affair with Latrell Mitchell.

There's going to be some big names left out of the team if all of those guys are picked.

1. James Tedesco
2. Tom Trbojevic
3. Latrell Mitchell
4. Josh Dugan / Jaryd Hayne / Blake Ferguson
5. Josh Addo-Carr
6. James Maloney
7. Mitchell Pearce
8. David Klemmer
9. Nathan Peats
10. Andrew Fifita
11. Tyson Frizell
12. Boyd Cordner
13. Jake Trbojevic

14. Tyrone Peachey
15. Wade Graham
16. Jordan McLean
17. Paul Vaughan / James Tamou

NSW back line could be fucking deadly in a couple of years. Imagine Turbo, Bird, Latrell and Atta Carr as your 2 - 5, that could be right up there with some of the best. Well, assuming their halves feed them good ball, but their youngest and most talented halfback is in contention with the most overhyped.

It would be interesting to see who is named as coach in game 2 after that backline lets in 60 points

Didn't Freddy pick Hayne at fullback in his 2017 team? He also said Tedesco shouldn't be chosen this year. Although that might change now that he's a Rooster. If the Eels start well Hayne might be their fullback. I doubt channel 9s love affair with Moylan will continue next year. Latrell Mitchell may as well be locked in.

1 Hayne
2 Ferguson
3 Mitchell
4 Trbojevic
5 Addo Carr
6 James Maloney
7 Nathan Cleary

Bird is clearly their best centre atm, I don't understand why they don't really want to pick him.

He’s their second best centre but they don’t pick their best (Roberts) either.
