    Seems a few injuries are going to force some changes to the NSW side.

    Bailey - broken arm
    McManus - achilles
    Lewis - broken toe

    Any thoughts on replacements ?

    I think Glenn is a moral to come back into the side to take Lewis' spot. Wolfy is probably a good chance to replace McManus, although Monaghan is in the mix. Bailey's replacement might be the most difficult to find. Perry might be a show, got to be better than Brett White that's for sure. They might stick with Laffranchi and put him into the prop rotation as they did last year from memory.

    Anyway we could be a bit short of troops next week if a couple of the boys get a call up, as I assume that Lyon and Kite will hold their spots.

    I would think Lyon and Kite will be there ? also you would have to think that Choc,Wolfman G.Stewart would all have to be a chance.

    Shackleton (was promising in city/country)?

    That try saving effort by the Wolfman has got to push him to the front of the list, honestly not ready for origin, bull****, the man looks made for it.

    If I got to select the team it would include the Wolf, Lyon, Kite, Glen and Choc, mind you then we would be left a little wanting against the Raiders next week. I doubt Perry will get a look in, but I could be wrong, and my sense is that they will go for either Glen or Choc, again could be wrong.

    We are so light on in the front row department.

    Another thing i've noticed is how light on QLD are in the backs if a couple were to go down with injury. Hodges is out and they are looking at Wendell Sailor, Willie Tonga, Chris Walker and even Maurice Blair!

    I'm not too worried about any of them. I suppose in a normal situation they'd be looking at brent tate too.

    I guess they are covered in the halves with prince, cronk etc to cover... but outside backs are very scarce once you look past inglis, hodges, falou etc

    Word in RLW is that Bellamy didn't get the team he wanted for game 1, and Mullen and Monaghan will come into the side, which may mean we face a fired up Campese.

    Am really concerned about next weeks game, hopefully Cuthbo will be back

    Crocker versus Gallen will be interesting.  I wonder what Gallen was trying to squeeze, as Crocker strikes as something of a eunuch.

    The big problem is Gidley at fullback. He's only score a couple of tries this year. He is nowhere near dangerous enough to be an Origin fullback. They have Slater, and we have Gidley? The smart move would be Hayne to Fullback, and Monaghan to Wing. I wouldn't even mind Gidley playing 5/8, just not Fullback.

    Crusher 100% agree, but only if Hayne is fit, he looked lazy on Monday but yeah, I would take Hayne in fullback over Gidley

    Kidley is a ball hog plain and simple. He will starve Lyon of ball.

    I hate Skirt, i can't believe he is the Captain.
    Give it to Baz or Killer, or even Farrah.
