    When do they pick the first team?

    I can't see any legitimate reason why the Stewarts, Robertson, Kite and Orford aren't picked. When the premiers smash their nearest opposition by a record margin, having similarly dealt with the other finalists, they have to be doing something special at the right time for the test team.

    what about Wolfman as well, he wouldn't be a bad choice either

    Put aside discussion of the backs for now.

    Select the entire forward pack.  Dominant.  Throughout GF, throughout final series, throughout second half of season.  Hunted as a pack. Awesome.

    Robertson has declared himself available for Scotland! They'll be crushed if the Aussies picked him haha.

    Prior to the Grand Final the Aussie backline was an all Queensland affair.

    Hunt
    Slater
    Hodges
    Inglis
    Folou
    Lockyer
    Thurston

    despite the win I doubt the selectors will go with any different and will justify the decision by incumbency and the Queensland Origin win.

    Kite is a moral to be picked though - or he'll declare his availability for Tonga!

    I wouldn't be surprised if more Storm players are picked over Manly.  The selectors will say 'but they've been consistent all year and that was just one bad game.  Then again, Ox and Choc were certain picks last year but their GF ruled them out...doesn't bother me, Premiership is all i need

    Give Slater the flick from that lot. I think the rest are specials though they will pick other backs in the squad and Brett must get a gig. One of the wingers would not be out of place and Orford should probably be the back up half.
