Is Stuart kidding. Gallen,Bird,Scott are his trump card apparently.They have one thing in common,they love a blue and are real "hard men"supposedly .Same reason Kingy got picked-loves the fisticuffs in the middle(though does not start it like the others).Ennis is a grub but can play and Snowden likes to mix it. The flip side - virtually zero creativity in the middle.Lewis not being their is an atrocity and Glen is very unlucky. Stuart will base his case on Qld always having a no frills pack that do the job.He is right but there is one problem-after they do their job Thurston.Lockyer,Inglis,Slater,Hodges and Co tear the blues up. Even if the blues hold the middle Pearce and co just cant get it done out wide(although Uate will help this year).Not for the lack of trying,they just dont have the skill set. For NSW to win they need to be penetrative in the forwards .I would rather be working through Myles,Thaiday,Harrison and Co than the superstars out wide.Lewis,Stewart,Choc gives them a chance at points.This lot have virtually nothing in them particularly as Gallen seems to convert straight into a up the guts workhorse from the opening whistle and leaves his club skills in the sheds.He has never played a full origin series because he doesnt use his abundance of skills and they iether dont pick him or toss him after a game.He is a champion and needs to back himdelf. I could possibly understand the run on pack if they went for variety on the bench but it is just more of the same.Zero Strike(Young ffs) If I picked that backrow to complement it I would even think about Mateo as a 20 minute player.Mistakes in him but also points.Lewis has no mistakes and points and they leave him out. If you look at Qld this year,Myles,Harrison,Thiaday,Civonoceva have been well down on form and are ripe to be tested. Ridiculous team from a coach with a proven record of failure.
