    Like clock work he's on Fox talking about the NSW team and who should and shouldn't make the team.

    Smellmafinga and his mates must watch this show every year and have a chuckle at the info big nose gives away.

    Same stuff as the last 5 years from Laurie though.

    QLD 2-1, 30 point flogging in the first and third games.

    On a side note, does anybody know why NSW always announces their team list first and QLD a day or so later? Seems to me that gives QLD a bit of an advantage to help them make their own selections if they were to be in two minds for a selection of a player for a position if they had had a couple of players in consideration for that position.

    I don't see how it gives them an advantage. They always pick the same team with maybe 1 or 2 changes on the bench.

    Yes I know jjai that NSW is currently 5-0 down but that hasn't always been the case.

    Perhaps I should have made my question more clearer and stated that I am not talking about just the recent times, I'm talking about the whole life of SoO from the beginning in 1980 until now.

    I could be wrong but as far as I can remember, NSW has always named their team first which could, during that time, have given QLD a helping hand to pick certain players and players for certain positions.

    Captain of the Gate, QLD have not always picked the same players. They keep a lot of core players who have set fixed positions but they have also moved other core players around in different positions as well as introducing other players to cover injuries etc.

    Exactly Jethro I have always wondered the same thing! It's not as if they need the insight or leg up either..

    Please don't give any credence to Daley, he's an oxygen thief when it comes to picking any sort of team. He's no longer a selector for SOO. because we'll lost 5 origin series in a row.

    Not all former footballers turn out to be great judges or coaches i.e Daley, Fittler and many more.

    Greg Alexander and probably Peter Sterling imo are far more realistic and knowlegeable when it comes to rugby league,
