    I think given Lyon's display up against Inglis, he'll be picked for Origin.  Sure you can think of the other centres out there but tonight he showed that he's the man to stop him, and go forward. 

    The selectors will think 'he's a top class attack and defensive centre PLUS a ballplayer given his successful stint at 5/8'

    I just can't see them not picking him now  :-[
    Snake won't be back...in comes...Neumann or T Williams

    I really, really hope NSW pick a bloke who doesn't want to play for them.

    He's the only one in the team that deserves to get picked and the only one that doesn't want to get picked.

    If he was keen to play, he would be the 1st centre picked for me. And if he is, he will be professional enough to do a good job

    Personally I would be picking Cooper to mark up against Inglis with Jennings on the other side

    I hear Jennings and Lawrence are both injured and can't play for City. It would be ironic if Lyon & Cooper got hurt playing for Country and then they couldn't play for NSW after all...

    If the selectors know anything they know exactly what players like Lyon & Cooper can do already, so do they really need to put them in that match?

    Didn't Cooper get a slight injury on the weekend also?  I think he played on in that game on the weekend...

    Yep Cooper is ruled out, think I read Soward in to replace him

    Further to the above

    Soward in for Hornby
    Heighington in for Simpson
    Scott in for Cooper

    O'Meley in for Cuthbertson

    Jennings and Lawrence both fit to play

    Heighington should've been there before Simpson anyway.
