It may be hard for us to avoid losing a couple more players to Origin. Lyon has ruled himself out but as Blues players go down in droves Manly are the form team that will be closely looked at. Gift and Choc are obvious chances due to their form. But how about some from left field? Hoppa and even Brett Stewart will be seriously considered imo. Hoppa has the advantage of covering wing fullback and centre. NSW have injuries in all those positions.
