    Is it good enouigh to beat Queensland???

    Forget my forum name I AM from NSW!!

    Don't jump down my throat when saying this BUT Kite could be considered lucky, I don't think he has been playing that well in recent weeks??

    And I thought they'd go for someone like Luke Lewis on the bench, certainly more versatile (and bigger) than Craig Wing.

    I like parts of the team but I am just not sure they will have the grunt to beat QLD

    Yep Kite has been poor this year.
    Good to see the likes of Mason, Ryan, Anasta, Cooper, Fitzy etc out of the team and lots of new blood.

    Gallen - $10000 fine then on the same day he is rewarded with a NSW jumper, it sends the wrong message.

    Not strong enough to beat QLD. One good thing is that if Stewart takes an early plea he'll be in our side for the roosters match.

    If he contests it and is found guilty will he get a 2 week suspension??

    This is the team. Can't believe Gidley being captain as well. I would have gone with Luke Bailey

    Mate it was literally just on TV then on fox and Stewart is on the bench for a start.

    Gidley captain is a joke, he has played a handful of games off the bench for NSW

    Bailey should be captain IMO....

    **** it I am going for QLD this year hahahaa

    Gidley has damaged his knee tonight - still playing but is not kicking the ball and is looking ginger.

    Could be in doubt

    Yeah I thought Lewis was unlucky. He's 18th man though.
    Don't think Watmough missing out is a shock though, he'll get targeted bigtime in defence and I'd rather he wasn't there tbh.
    Mcmanus is probably a bit lucky but I don't have a problem with him. He's having a bit of a shocker tonight though.

    I didn't see them mention gidley as captain... makes it difficult for Stewy next year.

    Anyways I like the team myself... laffranchi - Don't like him much as a player but I will say he's always played well for the blues... pretty unlucky. But, your always gonna get that when you see the talent nsw have in the backrow.

    I mentioned a while back I'd pick O'Donnell just based on the 8 minutes he's played for NSW previously... he was a human axe... he split everyone in half... wanna see that again.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Poore and Weyman started... Bailey and Kite have never stood up in origin.

    Watmough was never gonna make it.

    Bellamy is the blues coach and bellamy has shown more than any other coach in the comp how paper thin watmough's defence can be.

    I'm happy with that side. Gidley is a top organiser and thats why he has been given the captaincy. Good decision in my opinion. He can control things from Fullback.

    Bailey is as dumb as **** and has plenty of errors in his game and would not make a good NSW captain.

    LOL.

    Chocs hands and his defence aren't up to Origin standard. I'd be blowing up if he was playing for NSW and he does his usual couple of dropsies a match.
