Well the great Locky just said Queensland are NOT Underdogs...too many pills or that guy has no clue...
Too many pills. That game went exactly to script.
Locky is a selector dont forget. He and his mates must do better in the selection room. The weakest QLD side in a dozen years just got treated as such.

It will be close. Qld Underdogs Hah Ha :roll
You were saying?
Honestly I thought it was going to be a lot closer than that. In fact after the first 20 i thought we might even lose the game.

Also did the Qld team apply some grubby tactics or am I being a one eyed supporter?

I agree that the first 20 was very competitive and thats because the blues were playing with only 1.5 front rowers. Once the benches came on they immediately took control and never took the foot off. It is exactly how i saw the game playing out in my head when studying the teams chosen. NSW have an exceptional crop coming through and QLD must be smarter at the selection table...otherwise we'll see another dynasty start.

Theyll win game 2. NSW werent perfect and offered 4 or 5 scoring opportunities. With the correct players chosen those chances will be converted. Add to that the fact that the worlds best defensive backrower had an off game and these teams are a lot closer than last night indicated.
Game 1 was brilliant
Game 2 will be an epic

On last night's performance they are going to find it tough in Sydney.
Their 3/4s and prop rotation is lacking. Also there is no punch in the forwards.
I think they are getting to the rebuild requirement stage.

Qld simply couldnt compete in the middle of the park... NSW would make 57m, Qld would make 43m; NSW make 47m, Qld 39m. And while both teams were forming completions, the lack of meters went on for most of the match. Once you add those additional meters, and factor in the possibility of 50% of those were 'post contact' ultimately drawing another 1-2 defenders, Qld was always going to crack.

Slater, Inglis, Thurston wouldve been on a losing team last night if they played... People simply under estimate the work load of Matt Scott & Corey Parker, followed with the old man Myles [63m] nearly in a Wheelchair. Qld need to firstly address the meters in the middle of the park before they are any chance of competing with this mobile Blues Pack before worrying about bringing in backline changes [Holmes must come in].

Then before Qld decide at the selection table who to pick, the white elephant in the room is the tired legs of their Champion Captain. The #14 jumper in Game 2 will obviously need to be a DH option!

Kevin Walters MUST make changes and not worry too much about the result of the series, and focus on building combinations to be a threat from 2018 on-wards. With this in mind, Slater doesnt come in and we look to the future. I'm not dropping Milford, he just doesnt fit into my structure factoring what happened last night:

1. Boyd
2. Gagai
3. Holmes
4. Chambers [switches to the right]
5. Oates
6. Thurston [if not 100%, Morgan comes in as he is the more senior player]
7. Cronk
8. Napa
9. Smith
10. Lillyman
11. Thaiday [switches to prop rotation once Hess comes on]
12. Gillett
13. McGuire

14. McCullough
15. Wallace
16. Papalli
17. Hess

Not a team which will win the series, but a team for next year moving forward.

Reading back through this thread is interesting, none of us predicted such a game.

Not even me as the most parochial NSW supported there is.

I think there is a ton of improvement in the Blues, A few were off in the backs and that is masked by a try and a a strip. Big moments none the less.



Another note.

If we can wrap up the series in 3 weeks, I will look forward to 2018 minus even more stars, Cronk, Thiaday, lillyman, myles. Thurston.

The once in a hundred year team is almost gone.

Queensland got rolled in the forwards and need to make changes there especially on the bench. One of the problems they face is that these players have been so good for so long that the selectors will feel that they deserve to go out with a farewell party. Oh well all the better for NSW

You are right.
Nate has played 32 games - all during the dominant run
Sam has played 28 games - all during the dominant run
Lillyman has played 14 games - all during the dominant run

These three blokes are responsible for the success the state has recieved. It will be hard for the selectors to drop them but they had no problem dropping Slater so drop them they must. Oniel needs to go as well.

O'Neill is gone for sure and Slater will come in with Boyd to the wing and Gagai to the centres. Lockyer played with a lot of the others so will be clouded there. They should drop them but I really would be surprised

Has Sammy finished eating that cow he had under his jumper last night.
Surely that was his last time he'll ever get near an Origin team again,
Maybe him and Miles can find a whole herd and they can chew away to see who bursts first
