    So Dugan has been ruled out of the Country side with injury. David Mead has come into the squad to play fullback.

    My question is has Snake made himself unavailable for representative duties or is he the likely NSW fullback?

    NSW look more stable with Snake in the side, but I don't want him there as we will be flogged 3-0 once again unfortunately with no decent halves.

      Having that Dicky hamstring I hope he doesn't play for NSW, & just keeps fit for Manly games.

        It also depend's on Hayne's injury. Hayne has been in good form and, from a selfish Manly viewpoint, I hope he is right for SOO.

          Michael Gordon would be another option.

              Please no - we're going to need Snake more than NSW!

                The only reason he wouldn't be getting picked is if he is a Queenslander.

                There are 3 top quality fullbacks in the NRL these days, Inglis, Slagger and Brett.

                  They should put him at lock.

                    Or unless he's made himself unavailable. Which was my question.

                      Yes, Snake involved in SOO - IN A COACHING ROLE !
                      No way should Dave Perry let him on the field.

                      Can't see why he would make himself unavailable if fit, he would have been the Blues regular fullback for the last 8 years or so if not for injury and the usual NSW slapstick selection policies.
                      I think last time he played was under Bellamy and he switched him to the wing - surely he has unfinished business and he deserves it.

                      He wouldn't have ruled himself out. Dont they get 30K per game now? As if he would pass on that, even if it is to go out and get flogged by QLD

                      NSW should pick Hoppa.

                      Leave Snake out of it. He needs to make sure he helps his brother get a 3rd premiership ring.

                      Bro's before SOO woes.

                        Hoppa on the wing outside Hayne
                        Morris's on the other side
                        Snake at the back

                        That'd be my backline.

                          All I know is Wolfman and Nathan Merritt should be on the wings because they've been there and f***ed it up before, just like our most capped halfback Mitchell Pearce and the best ever captain from the bench Kurt Gidley.

                            It's come to seem parochial but you can see why AFL have ditched SOO.
                            They just want their players fit for club games, plus the season becomes a hard campaign for rep players.

                              I personally don't think Snake will play. Hayne and Dugan are ahead in the pecking order, and unless both injured I can't see Snake playing.

                              I actually like our players playing in rep teams, I think it's good for them and they come back to us better players. However in Snakes case I really worry about his ability to put up with the physical stresses of a SOO campaign so he is one person I really hope doesn't play.
