Looks like Woods gets another test Cap.
Yeah and such a crap player, according to our fans, but good on him. Congrats Woodsy
Merrin has been terrible in a struggling team so far this year, but like so many others before, his game will lift amongst the elite players. I reckon DeBelin or Vaughan must be close tho - perhaps they’ll get a go in Origin.
What a rubbish team.
How do they exclude Slater??? He is fit and is also in great form.
Merrin is a joke, he doesn’t even think he deserves to be in consideration for origin, let alone test. What about J Trbojevic or JDB at lock. Or even Klemmer at lock.
I think morgan is being outclassed by John Asiata in the halves at North Queensland. I think Jack Bird should be our utility as he covers more positions.
Surely they could’ve found room for Graham but Cordner & Gillet is still a great back-row
Dugan and Ferguson are garbage. Surely they should’ve had Slater at fullback and Boyd or T Trbojevic on the wing. How is Dugan picked at centre? They should’ve picked Leilua. This team is an absolute joke and I am fuming over the stupidity shown by the selectors.
This would be my team:
14. Jack Bird
15. Woods/McGuire/Junior Paulo/Boyd/Klemmer
16. Woods/McGuire/Junior Paulo/Boyd/Klemmer
Mal’s repeated pretty often that they’ve only got 5 days to prepare, so he’d stick with the Four Nations squad, which is fair enough I think. Likely to see more changes at the end of the year, where hopefully players like Vaughan will get a chance and Dugan and Ferguson will be long gone.
That said, I rate Merrin, he’s a more complete Fifita.
