    I would rather he missed out and have a rest selfishly but it may help him get his head right

    Do the selectors watch club games? I can't see Choc deserving it on his latest performances - I mean hey he's a great player but he hasn't quite had the form lately.

    NO NO NO

    Congrats on the selction but I really want him to have this time off, he's been playing virtually non stop footy for about 3 years and a good break will do him the world of good.

    Surely Creagh and/or Costigan deserves to be picked ahead of choc ?????

    Creagh has been stamped never to play rep football again for backing away at a 100 miles an hour from Hodges in last years origin match.

    If they go with a Utility on the bench lets hope they see sense and go with Carney over Gidley.

    Yeah and with good reason.

    He runs a bloody good angle though (Creagh) it's just a matter of ticker

    Then why was picked again for this year's series?

    International debuts (I think?) for Carney, Young, Learoyd-Lars, Scott, Farrah, Lawrence.

    Second and final chance i guess?  But yet he failed for NSW again.

    I thought Choc pulled out so he could get surgery or something? 

    Farah huh, will Sheens coach the rest of the team to be cats and lie down?

    No doubt choc didn't come close this year to what he produced last season but I don't but he hasn't been 100% for a while.  His effort while playing busted the last few games I thought was his best for the year.  I think he struggled with the change in game plan.  Was kinda hoping he would miss the four nations to give himself a rest and get ready for 2011.

    choc was injured but choc missed orford more than most. The orford short ball to watters was awesome and a big part of manly converting pressure into points

    or he missed  brett stewart , running up the middle in support everytime he made a break, he set snake up plenty once he broke through the 1st line of defense.. i watched the 08 highlights dvd the other day choc is away  &  snake running up next to him  ,, try all the time..

    He missed Orford more. I am pretty sure his line breaks were down.

    He ran off Orford Short balls all day last year, but I guess that also had to do with the fact Stewart was lurking around the same hole, so put them in 2 minds

    Agree. I think Saints have been a little dudded, not that I really give a toss. Creagh deserves a spot.
