    <p />ROOSTERS five-eighth Braith Anasta yesterday threw his support behind recovering bad-boy Todd Carney, saying his new teammate should be considered for a Blues' State of Origin jersey this season.

    Am I the only one who thinks Anasta must have played second-row his whole career? Carney in front of Hayne or Snake? - I don't think so  ;D
    A bit of Saturday morning levity for ya.

    Get some runs on the board before making the outrageous claims. Maybe the Tele has been attending the 'Zorba School of Pre-season Hype' for lessons.

    With the cast of no-names in the forwards plus 'dropsy' Ryles and 'can't tackle' Hargreaves, I just can't see this mob making the eight.  Anasta and Pierce in the halves?  Why would it be any better in 2010 than 09?  Other teams don't stand still.

    Dan should add a Carney double option to the tipping comp. Pick the week(s) he disgraces himself and the week the Rorters flick him.

    I hope he means Blues as in fights this year - no way he deserves to be chosen for NSW.

    Where's Carney and Minichello play as well? Then add Foran apparently the year after.

    lol. this is the inverse of team spirit. talk him up now, so when you bag him later as captain you look even handed.

    maybe he is really just making a comment so that his own name appears in the same article as the keywords "blues selection" + Anasta? not sure but the hype is suss.

    kudos to DSM for pointing out how the resurgent roosters forwards pack is gonna make Smith look like a coach under fire by the end of Round 5. Thats the problem with being front and centre at the start (when teams are fresh), if you fail everyone is gonna bag you. maybe I'll punt on roosters opponents for rnds 1-5 just for the fun of it. Double or nothing each week, should keep it interesting.

    By the time SOO comes around he'll be playing 5/8, Pearce will be half and Anasta will be lock.
