    Can count himself very, very luck to get a Test jersey after that performance today. His hands were terrible, and one silly penalty that could have cost us.

    Yes he has been, but we're talking about Test jersey.

    Who deserves to be there ahead of him ?

    And he gave away no penalties today

    Gave away one, if not two penalties, turned it over twice and threw a coma pass to Joe G.

    Has been good this year, today wasn't his best but the entire team could be put in that boat.

    Think you may be attributing a Fa'aoso penalty to Choc there. NRL stats has him listed as 3 errors and 0 penalties

    Dropmo was back when he missed the try under the post early in the first half. But deserved test spot.

      Mate he's been solid as a rock all year. Yes he wasn't outstanding today but so was most of the team.
      Definitely deserves his test spot.

      Anyone expecting choc not to make errors and not give away penalties is either extremely optimistic, or has never seen him play.

        Yeah he was real off today. ONLY 134 m up the middle through the meat of a strong Sharks forward pack and 23 tackles what an average performance. Get real he should be the first backrower picked in any team including Kangaroos FFS.

        Watmough deserves his spot. No doubt. I believe that he would have been chosen before Thirdman. The problem with Watmough (& this is not a criticism) is that he offers so much value off the bench. Thirdman on for the first 20 and then Choco to run amok for the last 60.

        He is the best forward in the NRL in 2013, being on the bench in the test side is an insult.

          My own backyard? You're an idiot. I'm not questioning whether he should play SOO, or how good he's been for us this year, or whether I want him on my team, etc, etc. Just that he was off with his handling today (and they often are), and that could have cost him a Test spot if the selectors were watching.

          How can a plodder like Luke Lewis get a look in, and Gidley? please. Tim Mannah, Aaron Woods Mateo and Big Useless ahead of Lawrence and Kite? Hopeless.

          Fair dinkum
          Who would you swapo choc for?
          Sure dropped ball today and maybe even gace a penalty
          but if the selectors drop hin for that they havn't watched the last 5 games and should drop themselves
          Still think MR Sheen is a tool and he should stick to wax and polishing
