He was certainly the best hooker in SOO for giving away stupid penalties. In SOO 3 this year the ref finally did his job cracking down on dirty stuff - imagine if we had stupid Ennis out there elbowing everyone and rubbing their faces into the dirt. We would have doubled Qlders penalties.
Ask steve, it's not my theory, it's his. Form , solely dictates the make up of the team. Nothing else should be considered apparently. Why no Ennis in origin steve?
I think BBF is stating that Ennis isn't such a great hooker. You are the one stating he should be the NSW SOO hooker. I think Robbie deserves that spot based on form.

Shouldn't have that applied to Ennis for origin?
I don't get these comments. Ennis and Robbie are pretty close together at this point in how they are performing. It's not like Ennis from what I've seen is killing it.
Yeah, right.
I got no more questions for you.

someone - please explain to Steve - what's happening to Cronulla right now. Gallagher - you still with us?

Hahaha. I agree with your assessment on Ennis Btw.
Just highlighting that form alone shouldn't get you into a team. And it doesn't.

Ennis is miles ahead of Farah. Ennis is the form hooker and a team player I wish we had him instead of the guy who is playing reserve grade tomorrow. We would also be a lot higher up the ladder if Matt Ballin had stayed fit.

exactly - it's not what you know - but who you know - the backbone of life. I disagree with both of you however - i believe in form should get you there.

Is not even worth arguing the difference in form of Ennis to Farah. It's embarrassing.

Obviously form is usually the main factor but it's not everything in a team sport. It can't be.

And that's why form isn't the only criteria to picking a team. Otherwise you and Steve would have had ennid in origin this year.
