    It's out today ($18.95). Interestingly, Jamie Lyon did not make their team of the year. The centres are Greg Inglis and Josh Morris.

    Inglis played the bulk of the season at fullback did he not ?? Was Slater fullback or Barba ?

    Exactly! GI misses out on the fullback spot, tough luck, can't then pick him somewhere else.

    Yeah agree. That's why I just said 'interestingly'. But IMO Lyon was the best centre in the game this year and Inglis played most of the year at fullback. The teams for every round are named and Inglis played just two games at centre for his club. He moved to fullback in Rd 3 and stayed there for the remainder of the year. Add the three state of origin games and one test match. That's six games at centre all year. Hardly enough to be named centre of the year.

    The team is:

    Fullback :Barba
    Wingers: B Morris and Tate
    Centres: Inglis and J Morris
    5/8: Thurston
    1/2: Cronk
    Props: Tamou and Ear Biter
    Hooker: Smith
    2nd Row: Myles and S Burgess
    Lock: Gallen

    I'm pretty sure they got Jamie Lyon to name the side this year due to his excellent player judgement ability, and all round superior knowledge of the game. Being a humble bloke, I guess he decided to give a couple of strugglers, by comparison, the honours.

    I tweeted Middleton with "How did Inglis make your team of the year at centre? He only played there twice for Souths + 4 Rep games. Just 6 games all year".

    He replied with "Good enough for QLD and Australian selectors to name him in their 'teams of the year' so good enough for me."




    I just remembered Inglis played fullback in Origin 3 as Slater was out injured. So he played centre in just 5 games.

    Well if middleton doesn't have an original opinion he should save time and just name the aussie team.

    I asked him if that's his reason then why didn't Billy Slater make his team?

    A valid question with a high probability of either no response or some crappy one.

    "Awww Bones I just like him and the arlc wanted me to put in marquee players and my employer told me to so there."

    -would possibly be an accurate answer.

    His response: "Yet you have no issue with me selecting Bret Tate on the wing - 23 games at centre for NQ and 3 games on the wing for QLD"


    I tweeted back: " only because I wasn't aware of it. Now I do (have an issue with it). Another ridiculous decision"

    I'm not even sure Sam Burgess should be in that team.
