He may be a piss ant, but I think he would combine with Maloney better and have more to offer than Green. Could be wrong - either of them would do, as long as we don't see Pearce or Moses anywhere near there!

Maloney and Keary are both pretty poor defenders.

Adam Reynolds will be in the running i would think. Has Luke Keary declared who he would play for. I read that he was born in QLD but played in Sydney as a Kid. He'd be a chance i would think.
Keary is a blue, and in stellar form, another cracker game tonight, he will be right in the mix
Luke Keary requests meeting with Todd Greenberg over State of Origin eligibility
LUKE Keary is so desperate to play for Queensland and not NSW he has asked for a meeting with NRL head of football Todd Greenberg.

RISING South Sydney star Luke Keary is so desperate to wear Maroon and not be forced to play for NSW that he has requested a meeting with NRL head of football Todd Greenberg.
Greenberg told The Courier-Mail that he was willing to listen to Keary's plea to reverse the ARL Commission's eligibility ruling because the young halfback's case was so unique.
Keary was born and raised in Ipswich until he was 10, even started his junior football career in the region, but then moved to Sydney where he continued to rise through the school and junior ranks to become the budding superstar he is today.
Under the ARLC eligibility criteria, Keary answers four questions NSW and only one for Queensland which is why he was deemed to be a Blue by the game's powerbrokers.
Maroons coach Mal Meninga is fully supportive of Keary's desire to represent Queensland, particularly after the likes of Rabbitohs Greg Inglis and Michael Crocker pushed his credentials as a star of the future last season.
But Greenberg understands Keary's case is complex and that is why he has accepted a request to meet the player to discuss the situation.

The meeting won't result in an immediate overruling, but Greenberg said it would at least allow him to understand the reasoning behind the 21-year-old's desire and perhaps lead to an appeal hearing.
"I'm not sure if it's an appeal as such. He asked us to have a look at his situation which we confirmed back to him that we saw it as he is a NSW player," Greenberg said.
"He has asked to catch up with me personally to talk through it which I'm happy to do.

"Whether that goes to a more formal request I'm not sure but I'm certainly going to catch up with him in the next couple of weeks.
"It's never a perfect system because people have rights of birth and where they play their football, but that decision was undertaken and conveyed back to him.
"But if he has asked for that meeting I'm certainly happy to talk him through the issues."
Discussion of Keary's Origin potential might be scoffed by some, especially as the kid has only just broken into first grade, but settling the argument now is the best result considering it may not be too long before he becomes a genuine selection chance.

Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire said Keary was already forcing his way into South Sydney's starting side for next season, forcing John Sutton into a likely move to the forward pack so he can partner Adam Reynolds in the halves.
Maguire said he's been impressed by Keary's preseason efforts and was excited about seeing him perform in the NRL trials.
"He has been excellent. He has had a really good preseason and I'm looking forward to seeing where he it takes him, he is a good player Luke," Maguire said.
Told Keary was already at the heart of an Origin fight Maguire was keen to see the youngster remain a Blue.
"I haven't spoken to him, but being a New South Welshman he would be handy in a NSW jersey," he said.

He's improved this year, yeah...
Maloney is king or missed tackles and Keary is a speed bump.

No good defensive halves rly available
