I do find our bias in terms of playing style interesting.

Like is output and effect on the game the most important thing or how they look doing it.

Martin is a fantastic player so this is no dig but Martin "runs hard" and Olakau'atu doesnt.

Olakau'atu averages 9m per hitup with 5 tackle busts a game.

Martin averages 7m per hitup with 1 tackle bust per game.

So again, are we happy for a player to be less effective when running as long as they give the perception of gusto??

Is it style over substance?
Valid point.

What's scary is how great Guac might be if he did hit the ball at speed.

You would think that average per hit up would be more like 16.

ORIGIN CRUNCH

There’s every chance Manly will lose five players during State of Origin and do it tough during the gruelling period.

Daly Cherry-Evans will be named Queensland captain while Tom and Jake Trbojevic are certainties for the Blues.

I would also be picking edge forward Haumole Olakau’atu, who has been the former second-rower in the competition alongside Viliame Kikau.

You can throw in prop Taniela Paseka to come off the bench for the Blues, who have lost three of the past four series.

Game 1 we have the bye, game 2 Bunnies (no Trell, Murray), game 3 Knights (probably full strength unless Frizz, Gagai or Best get picked out of the blue). Draw could be a lot worse.
