It would be 50-0 without Stewart in the side.
bet he will be happy he doenst have to play behind turner next week
Agreed. He's certainly saved a few.
By a mile. Fitzgibbon's the only other one that put in a decent performance tonight.
MAson needs to keep his big fat mouth shut.Â He was diabolical tonight after putting his team under pressure all week.
How many NSWelshman turned up tonight? Cooper did alright, Stewart saved at least four tries but the pack was shocking and the two wings may as well not have played.
Saved 3 certain trys. 2 of them were Inglis.
Stewart was very good.
Basically all the doubts people had about the side before game 1 became reality tonight.
Brett White and Steve Turner should never set foot on an origin field again.
Snake was outstanding.
Unbelievable!! Herald doesn't think so.... has him as the equal 4th best NSW player with 2 others.
and gasiner for that matter
I thought Brett played ok. I wouldn't say he had a blinder,
He saved a few tries and that was about it.
Fitzy and Budderus were our best.
Mason was terrible, i think he is the most over-rated player. He has to be dropped he does nothing but drop the ball and mouth off.
I thought Gasnier might have been carrying an injury.
If he was, it was very selfish of him to play.
I don't think he was 100%.
We need a more balanced side.
Drop Mason, Simpson and Hoffman
Bailey, Kite and Anasta
At the end of the commentary Vautin made the point that NSW had one specialist prop.
Consider this - I think Perry is going to come under very serious consideration for Game III.
I agree Mata, his aggresion would suit Origin.
King, Bedsy alright?!
You have got to be joking -- he dummy half service was crap, even if the forwards where doing nothing.
Can someone post Simpsons stats on here. I seriously can't remember him contributing in the hit up department and I'll be surprised if he had more than 20-25 minutes game time. What was the point of his selection ??
The one prop scenario with a thousand back rowers is ok if your plan to attack the fringes works. Last night Qld were there waiting everytime we went two passes wide. Why ? Because we didn't even attempt to go up the middle due to lack of artillery in that department. The Morons dominated the middle channel allowing them to spread their defence and wait for us. Conversely our defence got sucked into the middle to shore up the damage being done by Price, Civo et al allowing them to spin it wide and go round us.
The only NSW forward to have a dig was Buderus. I thought Bellamy's use of the interchange left a lot to be desired. Simpson, Fitzgerbil, and Gidley can go for game 3. Turner will not be picked again so I hope he enjoyed his one and only SOO game. They need to get some muscle back, so I assume that Cross will be fit for game 3 and they need to get 3 of Cross, Kite, Bailey, Ryles or O'Meley in there. Perry maybe a smokey. I wouldn't be sad if they pi$$ed White off as well. Â
Have a look at his stats cliffy he didn't stop tackling.
His service was **** because the 10m was more like 5m for QLD.
and while your there I wouldn't mind seeing White's stats
25 mins 14 tackles 2 missed tackles 3 hit ups (19m) 1 error 2 penalties conceded
43 mins 23 tackles 1 missed tackle 7 hit ups (46m)
Simpsons stats are disgraceful. What was the point in picking him??
I think Bellamy likes to snub the eagles.
