      Like your pack = A - & Cartwright on the bench a must....truth is that backline at this stage is VERY debatable.....
      Personally a massive Moylan fan & would have him there - 1 or 6...

        Won't be the squad but if it was picked on form this would be the side. Tom will be there for sure next year but I think he deserves it this year he has been NSW best winger. And Jake deserves the spot, he provides solid defence and rarely misses a tackle and also has amazing ball skills he can set up a try and score one himself.

            I'm a massive Moylan fan too.. But Coote got the jump for me because Matty hasn't played much this season. I don't rate Josh Morris

              If he's picked at centre I'll eat my hat. I'm not so stupid as to think there wasn't a reason he was picked for the test match. Just hoping you as a silver tails member weren't stupid enough to see it as a good idea. He is rugby league intellect impaired. Physically talented but not smart enough on the field to make the right decisions. Off the field, well.....

                  Josh Morris maybe, Brett hasn't been sighted so far. Last I saw of him he was still on crutches.

                  If J Moz plays then I'd be tempted to play Maloney at half, Moylan at 5/8 and Dugan at FB to accommodate him.

                  What we have to remember about Hoppa Mk.2 is that he is actually an incumbent NSW Origin centre. Don't discount Daley's so-called loyalty factor.

                    No I'm not a fan of him particularly.. I think he will be picked somewhere in the team whether it's centre or wing is to be determined. I'm a fan of Roberts as a player not so much as a person but think Ferguson would be a better suit in origin type football in the centre position defensively hence my decision

                    Sorry mate. Ferguson objectively shiphouse defensively at NRL level. He will be a turnstile at origin level. He's the only reason we got a win against the roosters in round four.

                    PS. Not a hater just can't agree with you here.

                      Not a team I'd really want to pick, but its close-ish to who I think will be.

                      Ferguson may be hopeless in defence, but rep selectors and coaches seem to have a man crush on the bloke. And after the test where he scored a try, only injury will keep Daley from having him there.

                      I've gone for Townsend over Adam Reynolds or Sezer because of his club combo with Maloney which is obviously working well. And Daley seems to like the club combination thing.

                      The rest just about pick themselves really, though I admit I am optimistic about Jake's chances. For some reason I get the feeling he might be this years forgotten man come Origin time.

                        No one giving Greg Bird a hope ?? I reckon he'll be there.

                        I'd love to see Cartwright get a bench spot, same with Peachey.

                        My blues team since I've been critical on here. Keep in mind I'm happy to lose this series for the sake of growth in future years.

                        Tedesco if injured Moylan
                        Mansour
                        Roberts
                        Morris
                        Morris
                        Bird
                        Reynolds Adam
                        Gallen
                        Bird
                        Scott
                        Klemmer
                        Eniss
                        Woods

                        Cartwright
                        Tamou
                        Fifita
                        Luke Lewis

                        Think it's a mix of old and new for a series of transition. Any win is a bonus but a good chance with two Sydney games.

                          I think the key is

                          1) backs with pace and points
                          2) forwards with absolute mongrel and a touch of skill where possible
                          3) halves not scarred by years of losses

                          So without naming the entire team I'd have Tedesco, Moylan, Lachlan Coote and James Roberts there somewhere. Josh Morris has always been very good, and has handled Inglis well, so he keeps his spot.

                          Halves.....Pearce out. He's too scarred and he hasnt played enough. Maloney has been great and a top kicker he gets one half spot for me. The other? Very tough. I'm happy to give Sezer a go, but Chad Townsend has been amazing this year. I could definitely give him a shot.

                          The forwards need that mix of Klemmer and Gallen (tough nuts) with skilful (Cartwright and Fifita) and workers (Jake T, Cordner and even Sironen).

                          Oh and I think Austin should be on the running for a bench spot. That might be Cartwright, but Austin should be a chance. He's a big hard running five eight and could play in the back row if needed.
