    CRONULLA captain Paul Gallen is so impressed with the form of Todd Carney in the Sharks' NRL revival this season that he wants to line up alongside the star five-eighth in a NSW jersey.


    The NSW No.6 jumper is one of the most hotly-contested spots in Ricky Stuart's squad, with Carney battling Canberra's Terry Campese, Newcastle's Jarrod Mullen, Warrior James Maloney and the incumbent, St George Illawarra's Jamie Soward, for the position.

    I'd have Carney and Maloney in the halves. Pearce is overrated.

    Pearce is hopeless. Carney did us over down at SP so he's probably the best going around atm.

    No Pearce, please. I like Campese as a player, if he can stay in one piece. Carney might complement him.

    However I don't think Carney & Maloney would work, they are both better as runners rather than organisers.

    Thanks. The thing about both these guys is they seem very natural, talented and proactive football players. On the other hand Pearce is merely solid, and Soward has some skills, but neither of them impress me as players who are going to take a really big game by the scruff of the neck and lead their team to victory.
    Could be wrong of course, just my impressions!

      when sober enough for long enough Carney is good enough, when injury free for long enough Campo is good enough.

      Question is can they play together?

      We have seen Carney improve since having an organiser at half for the guppies, can campo do enough of that?
