    Ricky was proven to be a dumb coach and I hope that people noticed.

    Pearce was terrible for the series. Couldn't understand why he was allowed to kick with Soward in the team. Soward has only a few good traits and I am baffled that he didn't take the lead role with clearing kicks.

    Gidley is seriously overrated.

    Mini -terrible. Hayne should have played fullback in all 3. Marshall and Foran should be our halves next year.

    Thurston has offered. Cronk will be the 7 next year.

    Maybe he will feel sorry for us and swear allegiance. We should be able to claim any New Zealander. Ultimately, all the best players in the game should be allowed to play.

    it's a fair assumption in the absence of any scandal yet to surface.

    Not with his knee injury. Even if it was something like an ACL tear he'll be off the field for 6 months at the least.

    Did Pearce play?

    Choc and Lewis can hold their heads high.

    Gidley is better in the halves

    Mini is past it he was too slow for the plays in origin 2 and was the cause of at least 3 of their tries.

    Oh and Morris should never have been allowed back in the team he was awful in game 1 and just as bad in game 3

    Agreed Dan. There must be a better winger than him. I would take Robbo any day over him. I think Idris should of played as well

    mini was hopeless. made so many mistakes.

    Pearce threw 2 good passes, but other than that - non existant

    common theme here - roosters

    I think Burt has been unlucky to never get an origin jumper. Can kick, play in Halves or fullback. Certainly a better option than morris

    Choc didn't drop the ball once, and Gift had a terrific game. Hope they can back up.

    In each game of the series it was the lack of size and go forward that was the issue---would not matter what set of halves you had with the pathetic go forward we had. No penetration or creativity around the ruck with the forwards struggling to reach the add line---soft forwards fullstop.

    Even the defence was lacking any aggressiveness----good to see G.Stewart do his best to lift the intensity and i think Glen was instrumental in making Thurston look up before catching the ball a few times by being in his face early on.

    Cameron Smith is probably the best player in the game at the moment his work out of dummy half is a pleasure to watch--- how he engages the markers and gets his forwards over the add line at ease is perfection personified.
