    I see today Gus coming out and trumpeting Trent Merrin, and whilst Gus does push the Panthers, what is the obsessin with Merrin? He seems to be a walk up start each year for NSW, but I just don't get why?

    He's not a bad player, but I certainly don't see how he is seen as an automatic selection for NSW.

    Now I push the case constantly for Jake, and I am unashamedly biased, but I see Jake as offering so much more, and yet he seems to have been forgotten about in the NSW discussion.

      Merrin lacks impact at SOO level and is too much like Gallen (and Jake for that matter).

      I would pick Gallen first (better than Merrin), Jake second (Gallens replacement and has 10 years ahead of him) and Merrin third. They are all fighting over max 2 positions possibly only 1.
