I just saw that over on LU. I had completely forgotten about McManus' selection in 2014, I just remember the 2013 recall. McManus' 2013 recall was completely justified, after Ferguson got himself suspended, James was the form option (19 tries, lots and lots of metres, great defensive plays) and should have been there in Game II. Not to drag it out, but Merritt's selection felt like a petty put up or shut up moment, 6 years after he should have been selected for City.

But there was no justification for 2014. It was Mansour's spot and Laurie got lazy. He didn't cost NSW the game, they were going to get an ass whoopin regardless, but it hurt them in the long run.
