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.
Not having a crack, but if you're not picking Slater to "build combinations for the future", then surely you can't pick Smith, Cronk and Thurston? Two of those won't be there next year and one will probably only have a year or two left. I'd understand where you're coming from if you had Milford and say Hunt or Taylor in the halves, but the spine you've named will literally last two games.
Slater has to be there, Boyd is solid, but was down last night and lacks the X-factor that Slater does. If Billy was playing, we score on Smith's kick infield to Cronk.
Agree on Hess and Wallace, not sold on McCullough but I can see where you're coming from.
FWIW:
1. Slater
2. Holmes
3. Chambers
4. Gagai
5. Boyd
6. Thurston
7. Cronk
8. Napa
9. Smith
10. Thaiday
11. Papalii
12. Gillett
13. McGuire
14. Hess
15. Wallace
16. Oates
17. Sims/Kaufusi

Milford played well, but unless he brings a kicking game I can't pick him, it made Cronk too easy of a target until Smith remembered he had boots on too. Wouldn't mind giving Taylor a go, handy goalkicker too.
The bench utility has worked well for us in the past but with the pack NSW has we just can't afford to. Jack Bird is strong enough to play anywhere except prop and create his own space, we don't have that luxury. Don't exactly rate Sims, but he's a bit bigger than Kaufusi I guess.
Oates to play edge, possibly moving Papalii to lock (who needs to lift).
Gillett had a rare bad game and that cost us the first two tries, doubt it'll happen again.

All that said though, we know the selectors won't change anything, don't rate Walters as a coach, and NSW should do it comfortably barring a catastrophic collapse (like picking Pearce in the halves again).

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.
When did they drop Slater?
Lost his spot through injury a few years back didn't he?

I like Vanillas side more than Watto's. Boyd is a great player but he is no Slater, thats no big slight on him as no fullback is. Im also not a huge Morgan fan. When he produced that last second play in the GF I thought he had arrived. Between then and now he stopped for toilet break and got left behind. I seriously think he is a couple of years off being the amazing bench sub that people believe him to be. Sure he can cover a lot of positions...none of them well though. A replacement 9 is a waste of a bench spot against such a terrific pack. Big Sammy must lift in the next 2 games to get selected as well for mine. Sad but his time is very near over. Nate has played his last game Id say. Was a warrior to the end still giving his all but his all cant keep up with this mobile opposition.

Good to see QLD making a heap of changes, I was getting sick of the drivel up here about loyalty etc.... Personally I think that NSW should be able to beat this side, especially in Sydney.

Will they stop Fifita this time? Not sure, but I do know that Myles did not fire in Origin 1 and Gillett was suspect on the edge. Let's see.

Swap Cooper and Papalii and I'd be happy I think. Cooper wont really get beaten in defence, and is a solid option outside Thurston. Allows Papalii to play up the middle off the bench which gives Queensland half a chance of matching the NSW bench. I'd be surprised if it happened, but I think they'd be more likely with that lineup.

Good to see Papalii named again.....he is hopeless. Too slow and fat to have much impact after the 3rd minute mark. Al Glasby is a bolt out of the blue.

I'd have picked Korbin Sims ahead of Glasby and certainly in preference to the second of the 2nd rowers on the bench (i.e. Cooper). Sims has been playing with plenty of aggression for the Bronocs and has been pretty effective. They got the back line right though and Napa/Wallace is a better starting prop rotation for them. This will be a much bigger test for NSW.
