    It's an interesting one because in games like that where Qld were so heavily dominated there was so little required of our forward pack that they just dint have any real opportunity to impress that much.

    The whole back 5 with the exception of Addo-Carr were where I thought they could have been a lot more generous from the ratings I've seen. To'o, Teddy and Turbo all ran 200+ metres and a lot of that was getting ascendancy in the ruck through yardage so I would've been a lot more generous, Turbo had to be close to a 10. Teddy, To'o and Latrell all 9's at a minimum.

    I also think there's a tendency to give a player a rating factoring in their ability, lesser players who have good games typically get over-rated and good players who have good games typically just get a 7 because it's their 'norm'

    Was great to see. I was a bit worried going in to it about the nsw middle balance but they obviously had a plan.

    Tino is a bitch

    Paul Green has always made some bizarre positional changes.
  5. Magic AJ Parker

    If Reece Walsh plays would there be a player to play less first grade games than him before selection?

    7 games assuming he takes the field against Newcastle this week.

    How many had Mata'utia played before Sheens picked him for Australia?
  7. morgieb MC Burridge

    It was 7 as well.
  8. Magic AJ Parker

    Wonder if NSW are considering any changes.

    I still don't rate Crichton overly highly as a 2nd rower but he's much better than Murray and Sims and has incumbency so he may be the only change?
  9. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    I'd definitely bring Crichton in. I like Liam Martin but I don't think he's an origin player at the moment.
  10. Alex AJ O'Driscoll

    Yeah would be bringing Crichton in to start, Murray bench and Martin out.
    Boobidy likes this.

    Think the whole world missed Nathan Cleary’s shoulder charge tonight, 200pts is base penalty for a grade 1 if it does get picked up. Hoping the fucker doesn’t have any carry over points...
  12. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Cleary out would be yuuuge. Would set up for a typical QLD bounce back, especially with the way the media has been carrying on about NSW.

    Cleary not charged.

    Jake Turbo ruled out of Game 2. I assume Nathan Brown comes in for him.

    Ikin only played 4 or 5 before playing for QLD I think
  15. morgieb MC Burridge

    Yeah I just checked Ikin, the answer there is 4.

    Obviously that series had Queensland missing a heap of Super League players.....but that's a crazy record.
