Players like Mitchell and Roberts are good in attack. Trouble is neither read the play very well in defence. Neither of them get in and do the hard yards either.

That prevents a problem in my eyes - in defence you maybe able to carry one but doubt you can carry two.

This may come from left field, why not have Jarrod Croker from the raiders, as one of the centres?
he defends well, has some pace and can kick goals

Basil, our rescue dog, is wondering when wests tigers will win 25 - 18 :D

Players 'like him'... Like what?
Can play 8 positions , but can't master 1

Only the very best can do it for any length of time , Johns / Toovey at hooker for example

Guys can do it for a game or two , but eventually the best of the best find your weakness in that position and then your toast

Morgan / Boyd at centre comes to mind Ink , you give quality halves (Maloney especially ) time to evaluate them in one video session after playing that position , they tear them apart

He'd be playing minimal minutes in my team, insurance... Could pop up anywhere throughout the game

We need to really thank whoever said that Maloney wasn't 1st pick for the 7 jersey

Because he sure the hell is after Thursday night and Cleary didn't do his chances any harm
Well if you think about it
Cleary
Maloney
Peachy
RCG
If they are picked for NSW then the Tigers didn't do to bad thursday night
To hold penrith to 16 points with 3 of NSW'S playmakers ain't bad for a club team
They seemed to have most of the ball as well
And RCG is the real BEAST

What are people's thoughts on Fifita playing. Imo if he plays it opens a can of worms. Would it make Taumalolo eligible because he plays for Tonga aswell

Can't believe Peachey is in the mix honestly

SOO finds players like him out
Peachey is the type of player qld would have picked a year ago. He is perfect for origin.
Its an opinion!

He cannot play - he has declared for Tonga.

He actually can play if picked as Tonga is a second tier nation.

You can do both.

He can play games 1 and 3 but cannot play game 2 because of a scheduling conflict with a Tonga game. He is eligible for selection.

That's a shame - think he should stick to Tonga.

So he said he will play if selected and donate money to charity...

I think it's a great gesture but I don't think it's right. If he does play I'll cheer him on but what precedence will it set.

I'll be gutted if Moses is nsw seven. He's lower than a snakes belly. Should be banished from state selection for his treatment of his tigers team mates. Origin is about team. He definitely is not.
