I often wonder whether it's better for him to skip Origin and focus purely on the Broncos, or whether it's better for him to become a successful Origin player. Part of me really wants to see Broncos do well (for QLD) in Origin, like it's a natural step up towards a premiership.I used to be happy for Milford to at least make the training squad just to learn off Thurston and Cronk but those days are over. So I’m hoping no broncos make it so we can make a charge towards top 4
You're right, but if I was picking the NSW side I would capitalize on QLD's biggest weakness which is our middle. Our forwards point blank wouldn't be able to cope with a rotation of Klemmer, Lodge, Haas, TPJ, PV, etc.I think one of Lodge and Haas has a good chance of being there. Definitely not both. Vaughan and Klemmer will start, and I can't see Fittler going with more than 1 prop off the bench. He'll definitely have a "utility", a 2nd rower (probably Chrichton), Lodge/Haas/maybe someone else, and I have a feeling the last one will be Murray.
I fear you might be right - we all do - but I can see him as Origin hooker before the series is out. Especially if we're losing with Hunt. He's better than the incumbent, by miles. What else does he need to prove?Turpin will be dropped the second McCullough is fit. Just prepare yourself.
Did I hear right that Granville might be suspended? He won’t have any more games to impress. Mmmbop is more of a utility but no where near the level of Milford.According to old mate Dobbo, Milford is the front runner for the 14 jersey (With Hunt starting at 9), only other 2 players in consideration are Mbye & Granville.
