My blues 17

I’d be sticking with Maloney and Reynolds as our halves, i thought they were very good last year.
If they stick with Farah they need a dummy half of the bench. Maybe Cook

I am going to make some changes in my team.

Swap BJ for Roberts
Swap Cleary for Renolyds
Swap graham for Vaughan

You need to change the title of this thread Geo /Mods

Should read "The 17 who will give me the Blues "

Hahaha you’re just running scared Happy cause you know the maroon pensioners will be pummeled this year……I wish 😒

Fwiw here is my Blues team:

1. Tedesco
2. T. Trbojevic
3. Croker
4. Bird
5. Ferguson
6. Maloney
7. Cleary
8. Woods
9. Farah
10. Fifita
11. Cordner ©
12. Graham
13. Merrin

14. Moylan
15. James
16. Frizell
17. Boyd
18. J. Trbojevic

I seriously cannot find a decent enough NSW hooker to replace the slower, aging Farah, so he has just to be there. I was gonna choose Friend until I realised he was a bloody Queenslander!!! Robbie is still good in Origin, so here’s hoping. I probably would’ve chosen Mansour on the wing in place of Ferguson too, but I believe he still won’t be available come Game 1.

Just out of interest, who would do the goal-kicking in that team?

I’d go with either Croker or Maloney. Perhaps Maloney moreso, as Croker would be a debutant - no need for added nerves on the big stage.

Seeing that side will get held to zero in all three games , won’t matter who the goal kicker is

I imagine the person taking the kick offs would end up with a RSI 😆

With Tedesco in the team, they will never be kept scoreless

A friend of mine north of the border reckons QLD are no hope this year due to the loss of Matt Scott…

In fact he has put 7 of his Beachhouses on NSW 3-0…

Stick to picking Queensland teams but remember that you can’t have any player below Coffs Harbour that’s where the SOO border is.

The border is somewhere near Bathurst /Albury isn’t it ??

I predict a very low score. Brookes will be kicking off first up and by the time they find the balls high up in the spectators stands after each kick there will be very little game actually played.

I expect nsw to win this year,Bozo gone as a selector so the future is looking good

I’d give Peats or McInnes a go at the 9

Who ever they pick I think its time to pension off Farah and Gallen

Gallen’s retired from rep footy so he definitely won’t be selected. I’d still pick Farah since there are no better hooking options IMO. I’ll go with:
1. Tedesco
2. Trbojevic (assuming Mansour is still injured)
3. Hayne
4. BJ
5. Ferguson
6. Moylan
7. Maloney
8. Woods
9. Farah
10. Boyd
11. Cordner
12. Jackson (I’m not a fan, but you just know that Laurie will pick him)
13. Frizell
14. Klemmer
15. Graham
16. Merrin / James / Tamou
17. Bird / Peachey

No to Fifita - I can’t stand him.

Thanks for your service but time to move on: Morris twins, Dugan, Jennings (I’m a big Jennings fan, but I think it’s time for new blood).

Blues team to destroy the canetoads.

1. Trbojevic
2. Tupou
3. Mitchell
4. Waqa Blake
5. Mansour (if fit) or B Morris
6. Maloney
7. A Reynolds
8. Woods
9. Cook
10. James
11. Cordner
12. Graham
13. Trbojevic

14. Peachy
15. Vaughan
16. Frizell
17. Fafita

New blood. big strong quick skillful dangerous keen.
Thought I’d spice it up.

  • Steady halves to lead us both good kickers long and short.
  • Steady props as well as punch
  • Quick around the ruck 9 and 14
  • Wing/Centre partnerships
  • Versatile
  • Dangerous out wide
  • Speed
  • Height
  • Class
  • Skill

I think Qld would be wary of this side.

Where’s Tedesco?

Where is The Plane. Can Cook do good grubbers?
