    No real point to this thread, just thought I'd make up a team of players to represent NSW, whilst at Manly. I came up with the following team:

    1. Graham Eadie
    2. Michael O'Conner
    3. Jamie Lyon
    4. Terry Hill
    5. John Hopoate
    6. Cliff Lyons
    7. Geoff Toovey
    8. Mark Carroll
    9. Max Krilich
    10. Ian Roberts
    11. Steve Menzies
    12. Noel Cleal
    13. Glenn Stewart

    And, while I had to scratch around in a couple of positions, I came up with a '2nd XIII' that also looks pretty handy.

    1. Brett Stewart
    2. David Williams
    3. William Hopoate
    4. Phil Sigsworth
    5. Craig Hancock
    6. Alan Thompson
    7. Des Hasler
    8. Brent Kite
    9. Ray Brown
    10. David Gillespie
    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Nik Kosef
    13. Ben Kennedy

      What part of NSW did Craig Innes hail from??

      And don't throw the "he only played union" argument in there, otherwise Ridge, Halligan etc would have all been eligible.

      arguement is irrelevant Fro, Innes never played origin and the teams are made up of player who did.

        Boyd was a hard one to leave out.

        Marty Gurr and Jason King are another couple.

        I actually had Serdaris as hooker in the 2nd XIII but according to rugbyleagueproject.org, he played his only origin series the year before he joined Manly,. Also, Steve Martin played for NSW under the residence rule in 1980, but not in origin.
