Plenty of us have strong opinions as to why NSW have been dominated in S.O.O for a decade. I do like listening to different views as it is a major part of following sport, the bit where we crap on about it. One of the solutions put forward is to pick the best players and stick with them as QLD does. Does anyone really believe this would have made any difference? It would have been great to have Hayne , B Stewart, Carney , Dugan , Fergo for example playing for 10 years in a row based on talent alone but it ignores reality. All of these players had massive issues to overcome and it was impossible to achieve. QLD had no trouble punting DCE and when they had a lean period years ago , the old "Pick and Stick" was given a rest. Good old Chief highlighted how we won with Hodgkinson and Reynolds and that this is the answer. Their own club do not think this! I suppose my question is who should we have stuck with for the last 5- 10 years who was not injured or sitting on a roof or playing gridiron or in France?
