Bell in the Centres for QLD

As expected Steve Bell is in the centres for QLD. Interestingly they have picked Hodges despite him supposedly being out for a month. Somehow Tate has been picked on the wing.

They have picked the same halves - so Prince plays for the Tigers on Friday night.

Webb and Carrol replace the lightweight backrowers and Flannery is on the bench. They look a stronger side and with the home ground advantage will be hard to beat.

Dam, Prince missed out. They will only be down Hodgson for this Friday night

This will be a QLD win.

Well done Bell, he's becoming a crowd favourite. He hasn't had a bad game for us yet.


I think the selectors were right- Prince is over rated...the Gold Coast will find this out!

Hunt for Bowen is a joke. I am going to the 3rd game and was hoping QLD would pick a side that could win, that aint it.

Looks like I will be going to a dead rubber


Just had a look over the QLD team again... and i have decided that i am going to solely put my hand up and ask for a go at picking the team next year!!!

These dickheads have no idea.... and before anyone asks: YES, i do believe i could do a better job!

The new team screams of panic.... panic has set in and they have made way to many changes!!

They have gone with the old formula's Carroll, Flannery and no bowen and it's going to achieve nothing.. i'm not saying they can't win because who knows what's gonna happen but they have to give themselves a better oppurtunity by picking better players.

Also set themselves up for future origin series.. they started to do this in the first game and now they have panicked and back pedalled


While i'm at it... someone go tell lockyer that origin doesn't revolve around him... he has proven nothing at origin level in the 6.. someone grow some nuts and tell him to peel the oranges


Inglis is out with a back injury. A replacement to be named tomorrow. Hopefully Wesser.
