You must really hate Ivan to write a post like this lol
I agree that Nathan is horribly out of form, but I’m sure in the origin arena he will do his job.
QLD during their domination of origin didn’t care if players were out of form and look where that got them. For years they picked Thurston, Slater, Smith, Cronk, Inglis, Boyd, Myles, Thaiday and Parker no matter what the circumstances were because the coach and selectors had trust in them.
Mitchell Pearce for years was “in form” and when it came to origin, he was absolutely horrible. Jarryd Hayne was picked many times out of form yet he ended up being our best player time and time again.
I think it would be completely unfair to wield the axe on such a quality player such as Nathan.
Nathan will be the blues 7 for many years to come, and I think we would be wasting this opportunity if he was to be dropped right now. Some players are built for this arena, and I’m pretty confident that Nathan is one of them.
