    IT all began to unravel last November, when Australian coach Tim Sheens and star back-rower Anthony Watmough butted heads yet again.

    This is fantastic news for us. Choc can concentrate (?) on winning us the real silverware.

    Amazing stuff.Carney has the longest rap sheet in the game and yet he was a walk up start for NSW before the latest episode.Iether choc has some real skeletons in his cupboard or just another example of PROJECT TODDY at work.

    You would think the blues would give themselves every chance.JT would have been gone ages ago under these standards.

    My tip no kangaroos, however they would be crazy not to pick him for the Blues as he is a proven performer at that level.

    I don't think they are referring to his "wee" episode when they are talking off field issues, I think they are hinting at a general attitude problem here.

    Sheens is a rubbish coach, maybe Choc let him know and thats why he dislikes him.

    As long as Ricky Stuart is coaching NSW, Choc will never be picked to play for the Blues. The day he was re-elected as the NSW coach was the day that Anthony Watmough's Blues representative career ended.

    Rep selections certainly look good on your resume and it's with your resume you front the employer with your agent to demand more cash.

    No rep teams = no increasing contract. He can only rely on his past (and current) performance. His worth is obviously decreasing.

    Agree 100%, why should he play City v Country if they won't consider him for Origin. Seems like A) a waste of Watmoughs time and B) Taking up a spot for another 2nd rower who could be considered.

    It wouldn't be a waste of Watmough's time. They do get paid for rep matches you know!

    I'm sure your 100% spot on Jethro, it's just ironic that Stuart (as Australian coach) would abuse an international referee then leave out one of the best forwards in the game based on a discipline incident dating back 6yrs.
    It's actually quite laughable
