    I know I know, plenty will jump in here to say "Origin means little to me, I've lost interest" "I only follow the Manly players" or "Don't pick Manly players let them focus on who pays them"

    Buuut, for the rest of us, lets talk Origin

    5. Ferguson (Turbo if by some miracle he played and got through)
    6. Keary
    7. Cleary
    8. Klemmer

      If Cotric has another good game at centre maybe him of Ramien......that right centre spot the toughest pick

      I like that team I'd stick with James Roberts and have Keary at 7 and Walker at 6.

        Hope Cody Walker flicks Peachey off the bench :nod:

        Fergie won't get picked by Freddy. He didn't bother to turn up for some pre season Blues Camp :confused:

          I filled out one of those pick your origin team surveys on NRL.com and Brendon Elliot was one of the options for QLD fullback. I know he has been awesome, but an origin option at this stage??? or more a case of listing current qld eligible fullbacks. A crack at an emerging origin squad would be a massive bonus/reward tho.

            @Disco, I’d have Gutho in the centres for Ramien and Murray on the bench for Matterson. I’d also consider Finucane over McLean.

            No utility on the bench then?

            I like Murray but Matterson can cover centre, 5/8 and backrow

              No doubt he is a good player but I want more spark from a bench utility. Someone like Cody Walker for example. If there’s no injuries, your carrying someone who is solid but unlikely to be a game breaker.

              So I wouldn’t go with a true utility but Murray has the ability to change the tempo of the game through quick play the balls.

              In my team, if Cook goes down, I reckon Murray could pinch hit at hooker (like Radley - I think if Matterson is the utility, you’d have to move Keary of Cleary to hooker so in my view the overall team is further weakened). If a half or FB goes down, move Mitchell to 5/8 and Chricton to the centres.

              We’re splitting hairs here - either way it’s a strong team!

                Can’t see Tommy playing and I’d just hate that to be his first game back even if he was fit!!

                  Ramien has been struggling a bit this year hasn’t he ? If it is a one game caretaker scenario until Tom gets back I’d go Josh Morris probably

                  Haven’t thought enough about it to name a full 17, but I’m pretty concerned about losing Jake, he holds that middle together defensively and does a huge job that is irreplaceable

                  Halves I would go Keary and Reynolds, for a few reasons. It has the club combo of Keary/Cordner/Mitchell operating on the left, Keary and Reynolds won a comp together, and there is also the Cook/Reynolds club combo too

                  Aubusson is the most versatile player in the NRL. He never lets Easts down and is just a true professional. I'd love him to be in the Manly squad.
