If they want to keep Gagai on the wing (which they probably should given his performances in the first two games and his suspect defence for Newcastle at centre) then who else is in line to take Boyd's centre spot? Munster would offer a lot more than O'Neill. I'd go with: 1. Slater 2. Holmes 3. Chambers 4. Munster 5. Gagai.

Tautau Moga is a left centre who is big, strong and perfect for origin.

Queensland is dumb.

You don't debut players out of position in an Origin decider (Cameron Munster). They should've picked Oates or Moga as they play in the outside backs every week.

Ben Hunt is a big call, especially with DCE playing out of his skin.

I would've gone

1. Slater
2. Holmes
3. Chambers
4. Gagai
5. Oates
6. DCE
7. Cronk
8. Glasby
9. Smith
10. Wallace
11. Cooper
12. Gillet
13. McGuire

14. Munster
15. Papalii
16. Hess
17. Napa

WOW - They really dislike DCE.

Either way Im happy, Who knows... Maybe my beloved Blues may not clutch Defeat from the jaws of victory after all.

DCE will never play while Cronk, Smith and Thurston are still connected to the side.

There is an obvious bias against Daly and no matter how much people dismiss it as rumour, it is the truth.
Ben Hunt is a terrible selection. He has been kept out of first grade this year and for good reason. Oh well...its still a good side, but once again these bonehead selectors wont put the best 17 available on the field.

Some surprising selections in hunt and munster. NSW are a big chance against that side but not sure things.

Underflogs more like it...well at least there supporters are...Won 11 of the last 12 series still have the best hooker/half/fullback combo in the game...give me a break..

It's a simple case of the 2 fold Queensland supporter mentality..If they happen to lose ..Oh picked the wrong team..If they win..Oooooh we are the greatest overcame all the adversity....Origin is all about Queensland the myth continues blaaaaaah...you twats aren't fooling anyone...Underdogs...lololololololo...
Compare the packs and benches Geo, then you may understand. Spines alone dont win origins.
FTR I have us losing tonight then winning the next 2.
BUMP :roll
