    4. Lyon
    5. Morris
    6. Campese
    7. Pearce

    9. Farah

    11. Watmough
    12. Gallen
    13. Tupou

    14. Gidley
    15.-17 From: Lewis/Creagh/Laffranchi/Douglas/Snowden/Perry/King/G.Stewart/L.Stuart/Patterson

    Out: White, Waterhouse, Cooper, Tahu, Idris, Kimmorely, Ennis

    I’d have only one of Lewis/Gidley on the bench, but I can’t see NSW selectors dropping either of them from the squad unfortunately. I don’t think Lewis is of starting forward quality. I know the Farah and Campese experiments faile last year, but geez, they certainly bring more creativity into the team. Barrett is not creative enough in my opinion. Gidley won't be dropped unfortunately.

    TBH that team is worse than we saw last night

    1 - Hayne or Dugan
    2 - Morris
    3 - Lyon
    4 - Jennings
    5 - Burt or Quinn
    6 - Carney
    7 - Kimmorely (one last chance, Pearce needs 1 more year IMO)
    8 - Weyman
    9 - Ennis
    10 - Perry
    11 - Watmough
    12 - Hoffman or Gallen
    13 - G.Stewart (we need a ball playing lock especially as the halves are shakey and Gifty can get the outside men away or go forward himself with runners)

    14 - Lewis
    15 - Leeroyd-Lars
    16 - Snowden a smokey

    but really 16 and 17 can be anyone, probably some better big props with a lot of mongrel.

    Gidley should be taken out the back and given a sex change, dead set worst NSW player ever, just shading out the likes of Mario Fennech

    Campese is not an origin player and never will be

    Pearce has some for of barrier in front of him when he plays and i don't know what it is, but i think he will come into his own soon, I think he is just young at the moment, but will "snap" and then we should bring him into origin

    The NSW selectors will handle this, it will be hands over eyes, fingers in ears, 17 new blokes and hope for the best.

    I hear the cries for the side to be scrapped and picked again, but, in all seriousness the selectors should try something different this year. Let the current guys play through (allowing for injuries of course) and see if they gel together.

    I agree re wholesale changes but there are a few glaring problems with the side last night.

    Carney and Kimmorley tore City a new arse so that combo is worth a shot and Cooper looked like an old man so Lyon can move there.

    Gidley got in the way in attack so Hayne there and someone to the wing.

    Only player out of position is Jennings but he has better footwork than anyone and only plays centre to get more involved.

    I dont mind it but as above, Snowden in Bailey out,a nd also Carney in for Bird and that would probably win games.

    Fluffy, Attack is not NSW's problem, we scored plenty of points last night and often do. Defense is our problem, hence naming anyone out of position is pretty much putting a target on them.

    It's simple, name halves in the halves, wingers on the wing, centres in teh centres and a fullback at fullback

    and utility players like Kidley (if he really has to be in the team) on the bench and out of the starting line up

    You're better off picking players who have done it at origin level before - Bailey may not dominate for the tits week in week out, but he has done it at origin level several times. 

    Snowden has had a couple of good games but I'd prefer less debutants where possible. 
    Carney is already there in the 14.

    Now theres a big and aggressive bench for you, there are grub players but they are origin type players, they can also cover all the fowards and 5/8 with carney being able to cover fullback and halfback. Lyon and cooper for defensive centres & speed out wide. Lewis for lock as he plays it at club level.

    Wow, you thought our attack was good last night ? That scoreline flattered us. 3 tries from 50/50 kicks is hardly tearing them to shreds. I don't know what our line break count was last night, but it can't have been too high. We looked lost in attack, maybe we do need Mat Rogers at 5/8 ;)

    It's funny reading this thread and how different people perceive different players. See I wouldn't have Hoffman, Tupou or Greg Bird anywhere within a bulls roar of a Blues jumper on what I've seen from them this year. Doesn't mean I'm right of course, but I guess we just look for different things in players. Our problems are obviously in the halves, but we are either stuck with old school has beens like Kimmoreley and Barrett or we've got to risk an untried up and comer. My thoughts are that we have nothing to lose now so we need to try something different in the halves and go for youth. I like Campo but don't think he has the game for Origin, I think the pace is a little too quick for his decision making process. Do you go back over old ground with Wallace and or Mullen ?? I don't think so. That just leaves me with the combination of Pearce and Carney. They have a club combination going that may be of some benefit, reasonable kicking game from both (short and long) to give us options, both are pretty good ball players (Carney moreso) and both can threaten with ball in hand taking on the line with pace and footwork (an area that Kimmoreley has zero impact in). If we surround them with some experienced outside backs I think they are worth a shot. I'd go for

    Hayne
    [less of a defensive liability at the back and his kick return is all over Gidley. Just needs to be told not to overplay his hand in attack and keep the fark out of the way at first receiver]
    B Morris
    J Morris
    [on Tonga and Folau to give us height to combat kicks and a bit of twin 6th sense in defence]
    Lyon
    Tahu
    [on Inglis and Boyd to shore up that side]
    Carney
    Pearce  
    Lewis / Gallen
    Watmough / Creagh
    [only need one LHS edge runner]
    Gallen / Lewis
    Weyman
    Ennis
    Perry

    2 of King/Snowden/Douglas/Lolly Jars/Bailey as metre eaters off the bench
    1 of Laffranchi / Heighnington / Waterhouse
    Gidley or Bird (on trust that he has been there done that a rep level)

    If only we could change the coach as well.
