Well if Tedesco plays like Origin 1, who would you pick?

Tedesco is a slater-type fullback and Turbo is a ball-playing fullback with a big body.

After Tedesco's origin 1 performance, IMO he should get 1st crack at the #1 jersey.
Trobjevic would be well suited to 14 since he can play anywhere in the backline, and in the forwards (he is bigger than Jake).

1. Tedesco
14. Trbojevic
Depends which way you look at it.

Tom is 1.94 metres, Jake is 1.85 metres
Tome is 102k and Jake is 107k

Depends - Tom wouldn't go too well in the forwards and I don't think Jake would make a good FB.
TBH if you stand next to someone and you are taller, you are bigger.

But if you want to keep it fair: Size= Height(m) x Weight (kg)
Tom = 1.94 x 102 = 197.88
Jake = 1.85 x 107 = 197.95

They are practically the same but standing next to each other I would say Tom is bigger.capi_d3f52dd963a939a416d87a2eccf7a0f0_641baa869139b07fdce71d486869942b.jpegdownload (1).jpeg
There is far more to being in the forwards than just being big. The skill set is extremely different to those required to be a back.
Yes I get that.

But T Turbo would be a great utility.

Based on game 1 Fifita was man of the series

Yeah yeah im aware of him, i was being facetious. Might let him cement his first grade spot before throwing him into origin though eh? NSW have good centers at their disposal, they just refuse to use them. Walker and Roberts should have been the centre pairing this series.
No! I thought you were above that

I would not consider Dugan as a lock in. How many mistakes did he make last night? Probably better than Hayne, Ferguson and Morris but therein lies the problem

Slater murdered Tedesco last night. The only comparison which can be made between the two is they both wear the No 1 jersey. Trbojevic should start at No 1 for NSW next year.
Most of the time that Tedesco received kicks, he was confronted with a defence that was up early and straightand didn't have anywhere near the room that Slater was given. Most of Pearce kicks went straight down the throats of Slater and were long kicks, making it almost impossible for chasers to get near him,
Also when it was possible to reach them, the block players were protecting him. Yes , it was illegal to have multiple players coming in from the sides and jamming chasers , but they've got away with it in all three games. Why the hell didn't we do the same thing.
At least it wasn't quite as bad as the perfect tackle on Ferguson by their blockers in a previous game. So much for the Refs claim that they would crack down on illegal blockers in the third game.
Who ever was Qld fullback last night would have had a massive advantage in that game as most of the Blues kicking was terrible , and due to Qlds better defence , was coming from too deep in the the Blues half.
The Blues didn't lose the series last night. They lost it in the second game by being dumb in Sydney. It was simply the icing last night

GCT - are you serious ? Tedesco had plenty of chances. He just wasn't very good. Slater was great. This series has shown the difference between these two players. I thought Tedesco was the best fullback in the game. This season he has been a long way off that level.

Slater is the best I've ever seen and remember he is in his twilight (34?). I compared the two because Tedesco is apparently a million plus a season player. The yard or two drop off in pace, passing and kicking make him a one dimensional player among the big boys. Slater was just outstanding and Tedesco not very good highlighted by dropping a pedestrian bomb which with the Cordner errors just took the wind from the sails of NSW.

Your dead right. Pearce found Slaters chest every time with his kicks.

Slater understands the urgency of getting the ball on the full & bringing it back at speed to begin the set on the front foot, hes a freak at it.
Too many #1's amble around, a hop and a skip there or a jog over to the winger to drop it off...asking for trouble
Its a simple game

Jake and Tom are the prime building blocks for the future NSW team.
