good side but wouldnt play Walker. Hynes deserves a shot. Jack De Belin should be in the team.NSW were always going to be in trouble playing with 1 DH, Cook should have been in the side, possibly even starting but definitely at 14 if not.
Enough has been said about Teddy’s game, for me his club form has been ordinary, Slatter makes Fidler look like a goose, Slatter picked his side on form, hence Walsh over Ponga, he did the same picking Cotter from nowhere on form last year. It’s fine to spew the pick and stick **** when your winning, Edwards would of done a far better job last night, his the form FB for the blues.
Should be quite a few changes for game 2, could go from a Riff based side to a Vermin based one, Mitchell, Cook, Graham, even Cody, perhaps Koloamatangi and Tatola could be considered.
Think this side would give it a better crack.
17 Not sure, Utiokamanu? a mobile hard working Prop (Junior? TPJ? Or someone else?) stocks are skinny up front.
Would of had Jake for Tatola if he wasn‘t injured and Tatola in 17
