    I presume DCE, Brett, TRex, Watmough, Glenn will be out. Maybe DCE or TRex might be available.

    Not such a bad looking team actually, although that back row is decimated. Still, we should have enough in reserve to beat a Chooks team at home missing Pearce.[hr]
    I think DCE will be available.

    Gillet will be the bench utility

    He did fine on that right side, we had no possession all night for him to create much or control the game.

    Yeah can't see DCE making Qld team and will be happy about that too for Manly's sake. Personally i see Watmough and the Stewarts making the NSW team if everyone is fit

    DCE did himself no harm tonight but there is just no need for him in the QLD side. What team picks 3 halfbacks?

    I didnt expect Australia to pick DCE but they did, we never know what QLD will do.

    Too many toads in front of DCE, his time will come. I don't think Brett will get selected, he is just missing something in his game atm, anyway just my opinion or the high doses of morphine could be clouding my judgment.

    Lucky for Queensland they can just wait until we name our side and make the best decision then. Seriously- what is the NSW Rugby League thinking??? I know it's not much of a leg up, but it could still aid them selection wise.

    From what I'm reading
    Chocs going to miss out surprisingly
    Both Kent (who is StuArts ghost writer) and peters are saying t-Rex and Bruher will be picked instead of choc.

    Dce will be edged out of qlds team.

    Based on that

    If true, that is f'n unbelivable. Only time Choc should not be playing SoO is if he is injured.

    I agree imagine the game he will have against the roosters if he gets brushed by stuart

    Choc is an origin player through and through.

    He's tough as teak and runs all day. Exactly what is needed for origin. I'd be amazed if they don't pick him.

    I wouldn't pick trex until he has a game under his belt. Taking on an origin game after 7 weeks out is a high ask. Doing that in a club game is fine, making your origin debut this way is wrong.

    I'd have choc in the team and trex in game 2. Buhrer will get his time but maybe just not yet. Backrow is the only part of the team NSW is strong in. We have so many options i think buhrer may just miss. He can fill in anywhere and be a gidley replacement i suppose. They can use him at hooker, centre, lock, 2nd row and even five eighth. Depends on the likes of bird, luke lewis, hayne etc. There's a lot of players that can play different positions.

    Good luck to all our boys. I want them to play to get the recognition they deserve but it also derails our back to back campaign. I'm not sure if i want them selected or not!:-/

    That team doesn't look as bad as I thought. Reading Kent's column yesterday he did suggest Choc may miss out. The 1 position NSW is strong is in the back row and Stuart will want both Sims and T-Rex on the bench. Throw in Bird, Lewis & Stewart and that's 5 back rowers already. Either way I'm happy for him if he makes the NSW side or not.

    I don't think QLD will pick Cherry because he's a specialist #7 and the utility spot needs a player who can cover more positions. I just hope the weather will be good for next Sunday, looking forward to the game already.

    I'll be glad for T-Rex if he does get the nod but it's unbelievable that we've gone without him for 7 weeks and now he's not available....maybe name another injured player, let T-Rex have a run against the chooks and slip him in as a replacement.
