Thompson? Is that Lance or Troy? Either way....what the f*ck? Lance is a second-rower, and Troy is ordinary. I suppose O'Meley is out because of his injuries etc, but is there noone else? Honestly?

Orford did not deserve selection and has been rightfully left out. Not that Gower deserved selection either mind you....

Is big Lance. His battle with Fitzgibbon will be a highlight haha

How over-rated is Hayne.

Fair dinkum? It's Lance Lance? Napper will have a f*cking heart attack when he hears the news.

How robbed must Glenn feel? Can't even get a bench gig.

And Pomeroy?! Seriously!!! He's hopeless.

I could name Glen ahead of about 6 of those blokes.

Sometimes I wonder if selectors watch the footy.

Couldn't make a blues winning team from both sides. Anasta, Hayne? Didn't anyone watch the Slime go down today? Why pick Tahu? he's of to rugby? WTF. Poor selections all round.

Not bad Flip, however I would go Tahu or Mini over Elmasri on the wing.

9 NSW players were in the test team - they were not considered for this game. Most of the test pack are with us - we are not without hope.

Ha! This will give Orford some incentive to lift his game for us.
