    I don't know why Peter Wallace has, to this point, been overlooked as a contender for the SOO halfback. After watching the game between the donkeys and the scum this bloke should be right up there, his kicking and attacking skills were great and he's very good defensively. Add to that, he's already played SOO.

    Has he done a Watmough and upset the selectors or coach?

    I think Wallace had an average series in 09(so did most of the squad).
    I would be happy with Pearce at 7 and Mullen at 6.

    Pearce and Mullen would be an awesome combination!
    Make it happen, Stuart!

    He was average behind a beaten pack of forwards, Wallace's all round game is very consistant unlike Pearce who can be hot or cold.

    Orford will get the spot once Stuart watches him tear us apart on Monday night.

    Wallace isn't the most overlooked guy. By a mile its James Maloney. He is a sensational little player if you ask me.

    I'm not sure on that one (that he has done a Watmough and upset the selectors or coach) but I know that when he has been named as the SoO half, he has not completed a series due to injury and has been replaced by other players such as Mitchell Pearce.

    I could be completely wrong but I think that the problem has been with the NSW selectors going into panic mode because NSW keep losing games and series. They won't just stick with the one core group of players and chop and change team selections instead of sticking with the one combination to allow them to gel (although some times the selection changes are forced due to injuries).

    I think that you are right that he should be right up there in contention again for this origin series as he must be doing something right for the Broncos to be up as high in the comp at the moment. It can't be all of Locky's doing.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing after watching him in the Broncos vs Tigers game the other week. He's playing well this year and is an integral part of their team. It looks like he's learnt a lot from Lockyer. He could be good for the NSW team cause he would know how most of the QLDers play.

    Well if QLD can pick Kiwis and New South Welshmen etc in their team selections then I suppose that NSW should be able to at least pick a QLDer in return if they wanted to (not that I want Sandow though). :p

    Foran would be NSW 5/8 if he were not kiwi !! Post match fox stated that we will be lucky with Origin selections, and get away with alot of players not playing ! Good !
