    Barrett's out of Origin. Is it just down to Ox and the dirty child pervert Gower for the NSW Halfback spot?

    Unless Joey makes a late decision to make himself avaialbele.

    Surely with Gowers injury wows this year Ox should be a shoe in.

    Finch did the job for a bit last year and whilst I don't rate him there is a chance that he will get a look in. It may well depend on the City Country games. Sherwin is out of favour, Kimmorley is injured, Tim Smith is a QLDer and finding the going tough and Gower has had a lot of time on the bench with injury.

    OX is a big chance.

    Finch can hardly hold his spot in the Roosters team.

    If The Ox has 2 more standout games he'll have a good chance. But if Gower is fit he'll get it. Barret could get it as well I suppose.

    Good point Byso - Barrett is a perennial favourite and seems to get picked no matter what his club form is. Who says he is out???

    Apparently both Head and Gower look uncertain to play before the team is selected, so the Ox looks a shoe-in.

    If Orford continues to play how he has been and continues to get the good press of recent weeks he will take the number 7 jersey even if Gower is fit.

    Kimorley said last week his is still 4 - 6 weeks away so its longer than expected. He's been known to unexpectedly and undiservedly stealling rep jumpers.

    I think we'll have two many players gone this year. One of the hardest hit clubs IMO.

    Orford, Menzies, Kennedy, Kite and bell with Watmough a maybe... although a very big maybe.

    Then theres C v C. We have got a hard road ahead over the next few months.

    I don't know if he's a Nazi, but he is a staunch labor voter and leader of the Latham fan club. ;)
