    White is a low, low call.

    He couldn't intimidate the f*cking ballboy.

    O'Meley has dodgy hands and a busted body, but at least you know he was built for Origin.

    Other than that, there are some things I like about the team - four forwards on the bench is a good thing I think. The more minutes Buderus plays, the better. Bird can come on and kill Carroll, and I'd be satisfied with his all-round game.

    Bird definitely deserves his spot and adds that bit of Mongrel we definitely need.

    I agree with you on White will, dont think he deserves to play at Origin level just yet.

    Looks like QLD 2 nil to me but to be fair there were not a lot of other options.

    At least it may speed up Chocs re-signing.

    I'd be surprised if Bailey doesn't start instead of White. I bet that happens. Also, Hoffmann should be starting - he is wasted on the bench. I hope he gets a lot of minutes. I think Lyon is very lucky to retain his spot. King is a Center too, not a Winger - why do we persist on playing him there??!!

    Lyon lucky? He was one of the stand outs in the first game for mine.

    Yeah, I thought Lyon was one of the better players for the Blues in the first game too.

    I like this team... I would have stuck with Mullen but perhaps didn't get picked because of his injury. I'm interested to see how they will play Greg Bird, It's good reward for a fantastic year so far though

    all the forwards will get less game time with 4 of them on the bench.

    i hope Kite takes a good book cause he will be riding the bench for a lot of the game

    Lyon a standout in Game 1??!! Were you guys on LSD??!! I didn't see him to a single standout thing. Being solid in defence, doesn't mean you had a standout game. He is there on name and goal-kicking ability. Don't get me wrong - I think he is a great player, I just don't think he is in any form whatsoever.

    I'm glad Hayne was retained. He had a CRACKING game last night against the Tiges. He is gonna be sensational for years to come.

    LSD, not lately mate. You cant drop a bloke for doing nothing wrong.

    I agree on Hayne, he is a match winner.

    I didn't say he was a standout!

    I said he was one of the blues better players IMO.

    He didn't do anything wrong.

    I agree about Ryan but i didnt expect him to be dropped. Simpson im neither here nor there but having bird and hoffman come in then gallen or watmough for ryan adding one more would have been too many new faces.

    White also lucky but who would you have there instead? O'mealey is the only one i can think of but is only just back from injury.

    With kimmorley's selection having bird there will help. If anasta is useless then bird to 5/8 outside his teamate whos game he knows already.

    What's your obsession with Matua, Ryan.. He is so far behind in the pecking order it's not funny!

    Hindmarsh, Mason, Ryan, Watmough, Gallen, Bird, Laffranchi are all NSW backrowers that are streets ahead of him.

    No Jarryd Hayne in his team either.. I'd dead set give it up if Ryan was choosing the teams.
