I said before SOO 1 that I didn't think Mole or Jake for that matter were agro enough for SOO. Pity Madge didn't drop Jake too.

He had no impact in either of the SOO matches. It looked like he was waiting for opportunities to be given to him rather than going looking for the ball. Barnett will get more involved.
Not quite ready for the big game that is Origin. Anyway, massive in for us against the Noughts tho.

Thank you Madge thank you grub slater.

We will only be missing jakey and chez.

The knights will be missing
Best
Ponga and gagai.

If we can go in with a better halves option to support brooks we are big chance to get the two points.

Also hope turbo gets the C next to his name this week. I wouldn't be surprised if siebs plays him at 6 he made the comment in the media last week they he thinks tom would be an excellent five-eight

After both NSW 2nd rowers were so dominant in game 2 so you can't really plan to sub them out by having another specialist 2nd rower on the bench. It's just horses for courses.
Hopefully Haumole can play for Manly (ie not made 18th man)(I suppose 18th man ideally should be someone more versatile, to cover back or forward)

Won’t happen tho. He’ll prob jam Lawton in at 7. Real shame for us and himself that Arthur got injured.

True, but that goes back to the coach/selectors.
They picked him in the team so should have had a plan when/how to use him, if they didn't then it's on them.

The ideal time to sub him in was when we were tearing them a new one in the first half not when the game was in a holding pattern and QLD playing to save face in the second half in my opinion.
Yet Martin was going too good to sub off so how do they get Guac in the game?
Same as Crichton on the left.

Madge gave Leniu that opportunity and his stocks have risen yet left Guac out to dry.

MG would agree with you there
Not going to debate the issue of whether Jake should be in the SOO team or not. What annoyed me about Geyer's view was the way the media reported it. It was all: "Blues Legend Calls for Captain to be Sacked". Blues Legend, eh? It might surprise a few but Geyer played 3 SOO matches. That's right, 3. And won 1 of them. Jake has played 18 SOO matches and won 10 of them. I think that makes him more of a "Blues Legend". Not bagging Geyer himself as he was a fearsome player and is entitled to his view, but the media think everyone is a stupid as they are.

Geyer was famous in origin for being a grub and Wally called him on it. 3 games was that it? Fairdinkum.

Agree,Ola is good enough for origin,but with Martin and Crighton playing so well having a specialist 11 is a waste on the bench.
Barnett can cover edge and I think NSW probably need a bit more agro in the middle for game 3 as Qld will come at them and Barnett provides that.
Horses for courses as you stated.

Good call. He had no impact in origin and that’s on him 100%. We benefit as he will play with a fire in his belly with something to prove Sunday.
