    Seriously, Gidley at Half back?

    Surely the aim is to win the game isn't it?

    Andrew Johns has made a career out of escaping deserved criticism.

    NSW consistantly pick players out of position and continuously get beaten and SOO2 won't be any different. When was the last time Gidley played halfback?

    I think the only reason he's still in the team is because the "selectors"  want to save face by not sacking the captain. When they do sack him it will be too late.

    How anyone can see Gidley as good for the team i don't know. I just can't understand it. I really don't know what it is that the selectors see in him.

    Even Newcastle fans are scratching their heads. Didnt they win more games without him this year too?

    Living amongst queenslanders, I can tell you they all think the same of us and it's a bit of a running joke amongst my friends

    He has won Qld's player of the series for 4 straight years, I don't even think the king, Wally Lewis has done that. Crap that's right he plays for the blues

    I didnt think Choc did much on Wed. I'd play him from the bench.

    If Choc is on the bench he won't be dropping balls and giving away penalties.  If Bellamy keeps him there for 80 minutes the error and penalty count will look a lot better.

    Most tackles by a NSW forward, most hit ups, most metres. He did more than any other forward out there for NSW

    This is mostly just Telegraph rumour mongering anyway. I would be very surprised if Gidley were named in half back

    Same crap, different Origin game. The first to be sacked is the coach and selectors.

    Kimmorley played his guts out. He should stay but needs someone like Bird or Carney alongside him.

    Are they going to stick with Teddy as well?

    This is turning into the longest running joke we Blues supporters have had to put up with. Put the best players in their best positions. Put some players with speed like Jennings into the mix. Stop screwing up a simple formula for a simple game you morons.

    Daley suggested that this was an option, in his Q&A on foxsports. Also said that Gidley was given the match ball as he was best on park for NSW or some ****.
