    Gidley is the perfect utility man, will always be picked and his game for Newcastle today in a beaten side showed that, was all over the park and played well

    Tim Grant is extremely unlucky, and Carney is easily a better player than Maloney and he is in form as well so that selection is a blunder for me

    Yes. Today showed why Gidley should be picked.

    If either of the halves are having a shocker he can come in and replace them during the game. His goal kicking is great too, even though Maloney has a good conversion on him.

    If NSW can kick and find the turf we can win and win well. Kicking game is key.

    By that token plenty of other players who have been picked have "done nothing" for us.

    Gidley is a useless turd. His selection will ensure Qld win their 8th in a row.

    People say Gidley is crap, so what does that make Mitchell Pearce? He has hot to be the worst Origin hoax I have ever seen. About as useful as a chocolate teapot!

    Dan, I haven't forgotten them. IMO Pearce makes Kimmorley look like the next immortal.
    The guy is useless. The only time the roosters have done well with Pearce at half has been when they've had a quality 5/8. Ie Carney or Maloney.
    Agree with your thoughts on Choc. Wasted as a bench player and I think Gant should have been prop with Gallen in the second row.

    Bull****. Choc is the only forward in the team who is worthy of the nickname Army Of One yet gets picked as # 17. Bull****.

    Another series win for QLD. **** me, why did they pick Gallen at prop. You can't tell me there's not one other NSW prop to fill a starting spot.

    Hoffman has been shown to be a pussy in origin, much the same way as Creagh.

    Daley is a pretender as coach and I'd put Stuart in the same category.

    Choc has been the best forward in the NRL this season. To be overlooked in starting line up for Hoffman is an absolute disgrace. You can kiss the Origin series goodbye with selections like that.

    The best I have seen Gidley play in Origin was 2011 when he came off the bench to play 15mins of hooker, he is quite sharp out of dummy half and made a difference and that's really the only role I would want him playing

    Pearce is the best option by a mile for NSW and doesnt play as bad as gets made out at times, plenty of experience now for a 24yo so would want him stepping up a notch this year

    Choc is proven at being dynamite coming on after 20 and tearing a tired pack apart so can understand why they have gone that way. I agree with others about Hoffman not being up to Origin, but in City v Country he had a blinder

    I don't really get the Daley hate, at least give the bloke a crack before ripping him to pieces.

    No question there are some crazy selections in there. I am becoming convinced the problem for NSW is more with their coach selections than anything else. It is utterly bizarre to pick a lock as a prop and leave out guys like Grant. Gidley is just beyond my comprehension and Choc on the bench for Hoffman just beggers belief.

    Daley is clearly thinking with his nose.
