    Just a thought, we look pretty thin in the back row if trex watmough buhrer and gifty are out ! Who would you have cover these positions in their absence ?

    Harrison, Lussick, L. Foran and Skinner. Not the same, but it's not terrible replacements. I also can't see T-Rex getting selected, and if he does I doubt Watmough will.

    T-Rex and Watmough will both get selected - Stuart's not an idiot - he knows we need to fight fire with fire, and the only way to do that is to have Sims, Tamou and the Rex running around smashing those toads.[hr]

    If all 4 play SOO, our depth in the backrow will be tested. Harrison will need to be an 80 minute player most likely. I'd go with this -
    13. L-Foz
    12. Harrison
    11. Galuvao

    We only need to worry about the Roosters game - sure we have the bye for SOO 2 & 3

    If you watched the footy show on Sunday, Stuart all but said Greg bird will be there and not as a utility, so i presume he will be in the back row

    On Jamie Lyon and origin , so much has been written i've forgotten where they all stand but Glen Stewart and Jamie Lyon together would worry the **** out of Qld, especially with Uate outside and Brett inside. That combination with Pearce and Carney knowing each others game would at least put NSW in a position to score enough points to win

    I believe Jamie, has officially retired from SOO. Im guessing it has to do with the toll it takes on their body.

    I think the St George Centre Matt Cooper is in the same boat.

    Jamie gave it up years ago - focussing on Manly. What a champ!

    Minimum 3 Seaeagles picked - anywhere up to 7 possabilities.
    Prefer them fresh for Manly but SOO offers a deserved reward, that in turn makes them better & more confident players in the crunch games at seasons end.
    Those worried about the Roosters game need to realise they are pretty much headless chooks without Pearce - who is almost a certainty for the Blues 7.

    Okay so i have finally come to a conclusion on my side

    1. Stewart - Dugan is a great player but Stewarts defense and organisational qualities are key
    2. Hayne - Out of form, but an Origin player
    3. Jennings - Likewise with Hayne, put him outside Carney and watch him go
    4. Lawrence - Probably lucky that that there is a lack of competition in the centres atm)
    5. Uate - Obviously
    6. Carney - Best half NSW has, despite the fact he is a grub
    7. Pearce - Deserves his place
    8. Gallen - Thank god he wasn't ruled out
    9. Farah - never rated Ennis personally
    10. Mannah - Soak up the pressure early and provide quick play the balls
    11. Lewis - Obviously
    12. Watmough - steps up for the blues
    13. G Stewart - Second best forward NSW have

    14. Bird - Proven SOO player
    15. T-Rex - Unleash Hell son
    16. Tamou - See above
    17. Tariq Sims - See above

    18. Hinchcliffe

    - All this utility talk is garbage, if they are not one of the best 17 in NSW dont pick em, Lewis, T-Rex, G Bid and G Stewart all offer versitility

    - Impact players off the bench, imagine Tamou, Williams and Sims coming on after 20!

    - None of Hayne, Lawrence and Jennings are in the best form but Jennings and Hayne have proven what they can do and Lawrence beats out a poor field (Morris boys are not SOO material)

    - Mannah just edged Merrin imo, but wouldnt argue the other way around


    GO NSW!

    Pretty much exactly where I am at Disco, although I am a big fan of Lehroyd Lahs so I would go him ahead of Tamou personally but don't think the selectors will

    The Morris twins are unlucky but Im not a big fan of them at Origin level either. Same with guys like Creagh and Hoffman

    Disco I agree with your selection philosophy, there is enough versatility in the players you have picked. Not sure about the wingers and centers, maybe Lawrence out. J Morris in. Not a big deal really

    I like that team although i'd have Luke Lewis in at center instead of Lawrence, Bird to start, TLL on bench.
