All named for NSW. Choc misses out....
Choc shafted. full squad Greg Bird Jamie Buhrer Todd Carney Ben Creagh Robbie Farah Paul Gallen (Captain) Jarryd Hayne Michael Jennings Luke Lewis Trent Merrin Josh Morris Mitchell Pearce Brett Stewart Glenn Stewart James Tamou Tony Williams Akuila Uate
Can't believe choc missed out. Well done to the others though. Wow well done Bhurer
Apparently he wasnt able to train all this week, which is the reason he wasnt selected. However, Stuart said though that Choc will do a job for him during the series.
So I take it the Choc lost his blue jersey to Buhrer? Interesting, would bang my head on the wall if it wern't for the fact that they're both our boys. Ah well Congrats to Buhrer and all the others who got it. Was Choc left out coz of injury concerns?
So 1-17 it looks something like this Stewart Hayne Jennings Morris Uate Carney Pearce Gallen Farah Tamou Lewis Creagh Stewart Buhrer Merrin Williams Bird
Watmough deserves his blues jersey, I'm Actually genuinely shocked buhrer got in the team !
Other then the obvious disappointment of Choc missing out what are peoples thoughts on NSW's chances with the named team? I think Trex has the X-factor to cause some issues for QLD and Carney is obviously in great form. I think we have a chance.
Think it should be a good series, i like the majority of the NSW side
Jamie Blue-rer! Yes Dean Ritchie or Phil Rothfield .. You have my permission to use this on your back page tomorrow
Honestly that is one of the better sides we have named in recent years
Still can't understand the selection of Creagh.....dead set choc on one leg would be a better selection. That guy is weak....
Yeah Creagh is a rather dubious selection but at times he can play. Can only assume choc is injured
Apart from Creagh and possibly Hayne, its a pretty good team.
Creagh ran away from Hodges...good enough to stamp his papers never to play again.... The reason for Choc's non-selection is because he wouldn't be able to train all week. I assume its Creagh that has taken his spot.
I wouldn't pick Creagh, but in the final 2 games last year he had his role changed by Stuart and actually went ok so can see why he is picked
The centres are the worry. Jennings is playing NSW cup because of poor form and attitude, just the sort of lead in to Origin you want. Morris will play out of position on the right I assume, and he will have the unenviable task of trying to contain Qld's LHS attack of Thurston, that turncoat Inglis who is in great touch, Slater at times and Dave Taylor if picked. I'm sure Gifty will be posted out there to help him, but still a big ask. Creagh is a powderpuff, Choc is streets ahead of him. I'd bench him, push Gift into 2nd row and start Bird at lock. I hope T-Rex isn't short of a run because of his suspension. Our chances basically rest with Carney, if he fires we are a chance. I can't see Farah offering too much creativity, but I might be wrong.
Well done boys! Especially Buhrer! Great signing it seems for us!
Well done to all the guys picked, hope you help end the drought. Looks like Buhrer's stocks have surpassed Lusicks!!
Congratulations to all the Manly Boys. This Series will clear any dark clouds Bretty has lingering after the two years' of darkness. Looking forward to his smiles again Jamie and T-Rex will step up and soak in the experience to help Manly achieve the B2B. Glenn must be so happy for his little brother Sorry that Choc missed out, but the next generation has arrived and Manly will now benefit from his full focus on the B2B
