    I know that if you make too many changes to an Origin team it's very hard to bond and get to know fellow players, but there must be wholesale changes:
    1. Hayne (we'll never win with Gidley here)
    2. Morris (I don't care which one)
    3. Jennings (if fit)
    4. Lawrence (Lyon simply has not stepped up)
    5. Monaghan (or the other Morris)
    6. Gidley or Mullen or Campo (anyone but Barrett)
    7. Ox or Kimmorely or Mullen (anyone but Wallace)
    8. Bailey
    9. Ennis (give him a chance)
    10. Houston (give him a chance)
    11. Watmough
    12. O'Donnell
    13. Creagh
    Bench: Wing (if fit), Weyman, Gallen, Stewart (perhaps Hodgson and LLT backup forwards, Gallen/Stewart can always do stints in front row if needed).
    Left out: Wolfman (not good enough yet), Kite (terrible 2 games), Farah (terrible 2 games), Poore (not good enough yet), Lafrannchi (average 1st game), Barrett (not good enough), Wallace (terrible 2 games), Lyon (has not done anything above average in my opinion)

    Gidley, left right out.

    Not the best fullback, not the best half.

    AT most, number 17.

    Good squad CIG. I'd play Lewis or Wing before Campbell, but on the proviso that they were fully fit.

    Creagh was rubbish. I think his tagline for his performance was
    Creagh: Where good backline moves go to die.

    I wouldn't have him anywhere near the SOO3 team.

    I agree that I would put Wing as the utility coming off the bench

    The only people I would put a line through on last nights match were Wallace and O'Donnell, with Kite and Farah walking a fine line

    I didn't think Barrett was as bad as is being made out, his passing game was good, and put Lyon on the outside a few times, and the time he ran it, it set up Wolfmans try. Barrett/Mullen would be a good mix for me in game 3

    Barrett was a lot better than I thought he would be.

    Gidley should be sent back to Newcastle never to play again. Wallace should be in the same boat and since the game is a dead rubber anyway, we should do a few wholesale changes, for mine Ennis should be given first shot at hooker

    Imagine Preston coming off the bench, he would carve up. Lewis comes on, and while a good player, just would not be able to do half the things that come naturally to Preston.

    But NSW selectors have a no small players policy, so won't happen. Wonder is the great Tooves would get a run these days?

    Kite has to go, so King or Perry might actually be an option

    The only way Bellamy is going to put any more Manly players in there is if we play Melbourne the week end before SOO3

    Barrett played quite well and will hold his spot.

    Farrah was absolutely diabolical, possibly the most inept performance from a hooker in SOO history. His passes were ala Monaghan in his hooking days and his service was slow.

    Wallace has played his last game. His kicks were atrocious and rarely found space.

    Jennings will come back in.

    Ennis should come in however I think they will go with Gidley at hooker.

    This is what I think they will trot out:

    Hayne
    Monaghan
    Jennings
    Lyon
    Morris
    Barrett
    Mullen
    Weyman
    Gidley
    Poore
    Stewart
    O'Donnell
    Gallen

    Creagh
    Watmough
    King/Kite
    Wing

    Ennis is a far better hooker. Why do theypersist with Gidley, a man who has a non specific spot!
