    WTF? why would they even contemplate even naming him when his heart would not be in it???

    A few others were also named:
    Kite
    Glen Stewart
    Robertson
    Watmough
    Brett is still there too
    Perry
    David Williams

    Didn't know Cliffy was in contention.

    By the way it's Cliff Lyons
    and Jamie Lyon... not Lyons

    Great that's all we need on the top of Bretts injury, losing Killer and Kite as well for Origin. Does anybody think they will actually pick Jamie ?? How long is Cooper out for ? If he is fit they'll go with him for sure, as he seems to have a mortgage on one spot. Actually does he play the same side as Jamie ?? If he does than that'll save Jamie.

    Lyon will get picked and have to train with the Blues, but be selected as 18th man and miss both club and origin games. 

    But it's just a 40man squad, no need to raise alarm bells.

    I keep reading the 18th man stuff, I can't recall 1 time that the 18th man has missed a club match, they normally join the squad after the weekend

    Campese 5/8, Mullen 1/2

    Notable omissions are Wing and Heighnington. No Hindmarsh, Fitzgerbil or Mason is a God send, let's hope it means their rep careers are dead and buried

    Not top of the comp but have great players.

    So good to see Mason left out.... I'm deadset sick of him playing for the blues. Now to get Hoffman off that list.

    We are premiers of course we'll have a big contigency... can't believe Jarryd Hayne got picked!
