    Fair dinkum, going into SOO with only 2 recognised props and picking players out position. What props can fill the void for NSW.

    King
    Kite
    Rose
    B Cross
    Poore
    Tilse
    L Douglas
    Snowden
    White
    Weyman

    Looking to the next few years my origin props would be Weyman, L Douglas, Tilse, Snowden and possibly King. I'd play 4 of the 5 above.

    White is a pussy and I don't think they'll pick Kite or Rose. Poore has been terrible, B Cross gets ko'd just about every game.

    We need to change the coach & selectors not just the props mate.

    Has Cooper ever finished an origin game?

    If Rose can get his fitness up and miss injury he is an ideal SOO prospect. Until we get a surgical removal of Bellyache and the selectors it is a lost cause.

    You can't go into a SOO game with only 2 props and you're right it comes down to the selectors and coach who should all be sacked.

    Creagh, Gallen, Waterhouse and O'Donnell were totally ineffective. Get some big boppers in there that are prepared to run the ball hard and show some aggression, Gallen and O'Donnell are just grubs.

    Anyone wanting King's a ****en muppet. I've got more leg drive than old chicken legs. He's a bigger version of Williamson. Hits the line and goes straight to ground.

    Snowden, Douglas, Tolman > King by a very large margin.

    He has picked Choc in his team B_e (or are you saying for no Manly players to be picked?).

    Both the teams mentioned will get creamed by the Maroons.  Face facts, Qld have a surfeit of talent.  Look at the 1,6,7 and 9 and tell me who would you get to even walk in the shadow of the Queenslanders?  Don't even bother thinking of the front row until you come up with some talent in those critical positions.    Whatever way you look at this problem with NSW, you come up short on talent.

    He's too valuable for us and if they are looking long term I think they should leave him out. I'm just being greedy, but if they do pick him the C should be next to his name.

    I've put King in the side because he was 18th man but Tolman is one I forgot about and should be in the side.

    I have been trying to think of the best team. The problem is in the forwards, the backs etc have their issues, but can be replaced with players playing in position. I honestly think it was a bellamy tactic last night to have the wingers and centres bunch in and try to cut off the ball, high risk and needed perfect execution, but that is the only explanation I can come up with.

    Anyway this is what i was starting to formulate

    Hayne/Dugan (either will do, though Hayne seems to be dangerous in attack, his defense needs some work especially positional play.)
    Morris (gets another chance, especially with a brilliant defensive and attacking centre like Lyon inside him)
    Lyon
    Jennings (partner him with the experience of Burt or Quinn)
    Burt/Quinn
    Carney (or Bird)
    Pearce
    King
    Farrah (agree Ennis has had his chance and come up short)
    - Undecided on another prop
    Watmough
    Minichello
    Stewart

    Leffranchi
    Lewis
    Add 2 big bopper props
