Congratulations to jake should of been there from game 1

As well as Jake, it appears A. Crichton, Gutho & Talakai will be added to the squad (would be good if JAC is also recalled)

NSW need Api in the 14, maybe he should even start the game and use Cook of the bench, playing 2 9’s will make a huge improvement to the side and level the clear advantage Qld enjoyed by playing 2 9’s in game one.
And congratulations to Jake for forcing his way back in.

Surprised to see Jordan McLean in the squad. Don't know how Suaalli is retained over JAC (unless it's just a work experience gig). Appears Api & Radley will be considered for no. 14 role. Likely Talakai will be in the 17 somewhere as he can play in the backs or forwards. There are certainly a lot of options with this squad. Wighton unavailable and Staggs, Matterson, Sims, RGG & J. Saifiti dropped.

I’m close, I‘d like to see Api start and Cook go to 14 (probably won’t happen but his form would be better than Cooks and he‘d get to link with his club mates, there’s enough of them, but we definitely need to play both) and I’d go Radley for Talakai, hard without game time, but Victors made for origin, bit like Wighton and we need that now his gone and if Radley plays then maybe another big man on the bench for Martin! Could be why they have added McLean.
