    Agreed, Nutzcraw.

    Especially on Karmicheal - even though he had a pretty good game against us, he's not legitimately in the Qld top 17 let alone the Aust top 17. I'd reckon his Aust selection must've been to make him ineligible for future Kiwi selection, nothing more.

    Well done Bell, Beaver and Kite :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
    Good to see some Eagles back in the teams again.
    I lean towards a close Maroon victory on those lineups, but it ain't gonna happen - 'Carn the Blues'. :drunk:

    Bell on the wing is a waste when they have genuine flyers like Wiliams and Sing etc He will do a few hit ups but is a genuine gap runner than a speed man out wide. Well done on his selection but what has Tate done to get the call. He is quicker and has played wing before.

    A big factor this year is that if both sides win their home game the decider will be played in Melbourne. No home advantage to the Blues.

    If the Maroons lose you can bet on them having more chips on their shoulders than a timber worker.

    I think putting Bell on the wing in that team is a good move!!

    He is renowned for his finishing off prowess and that is why he is there, he is also tall and can hold his own against the big blues wingers... I don't know how many remember but when St George played against us, as much as i don't like to admit gasnier was running past Steve Bell alot...

    They obviously think Tate can hold his own in defence against Gaz and Bell and Hodges is a pretty potent weapon down the right hand side i think.

    Bell should be in the centres with Tate on the wing, Tate has more experience on the wing in 1st grade and rep level. I have never seen Bell play wing.

    Watch out for young Matthew Scott of the Cowboys. He is the next big thing.

    Thanks for that. Good to have the right facts. I still think they should have Bell in the centres.

    I note that Willie Tonga has been overlooked and that Bowman and Hannay didn't get a look in. (I know Hannay is playing PL!)
