    Reading the SMH Sports page that Ricky Sturat's top prop picks for Origin selection include Manly's Lussick. That should fire up the others if nothing else does.
    Woods, Lussick, Mannah, Douglas, Snowden, Lahrs, Merrin, Weyman and Hunt and Tamau.

    Ricky hasnt seen much footy this year I take it.

    Woods, Lussick, Mannah, Douglas and Snowden have all been very average.

    Its no surprise to me that Cronulla are now winning games without these 2 overrated hacks. just because a player can do 25 tackles and 20 hitups means nothing. Its all about quality.

    I know that Ricky absolutely loves Tom Learoyd-Lars. I like his aggression but his hands make Choc look like Cliffy. The collision between him and Tariq Sims on Monday night was huge.

    I've always thought Dan Hunt was the best of the Dragons props but most of the wraps usually go to Weyman or Merrin, although both haven't been too bad this year.

    I thought Tamou (Cowboys player) was a kiwi?

    Yes but no doubt it will also up his contract expectations.
    I am not really understanding the lack of effort being put in by our props, none of them making even 100m is a joke. The pressure was obviously on Kingy against parra, being the only captain etc etc and he put the extra effort in and makes 130m. Well why can't he and put in and do that every week along with our other soo/internationals/premiership props. They are obviously capable, so does it mean they are unwilling right now?

    Talking about origin, I was reading that Tariq Simms was born in Gerringong, does anybody know if he's a Blue or a canetoad. ?

    Definitely a Blue. Sims and T-Rex on the bench for the blues spells brown underpants for the Qlders!

    Galloway is back, and he is certainly better than most of the props mentioned.
    Strange, also, that there is no mention of King, who has been our best prop this season.

    Lussick will probably suit origin. Just play the tough up the guts knees and elbows raised style

    King might have burn his bridges already on SOO.

    Merrin has been a workhorse off the bench for the goons this year and could get a run if we balance it with Trex and sims.

    Given Gallen can play well at prop and we have many backrowers able to jump in then he has to be the first prop picked.

    Thanks for heads up Masked Eagle, with all of Queensland's shady practices I thought they'de try an do an Inglis on us.

    And yes, Gallen, T-Rex and Simms should give us enormous go forward.

    I can hear the war cry already if young Lussick is in the squad.

    Old Tommy shouting out - cattle dog! cattle dog! cattle dog! :)

    Firstly, I am a vocal critic of SOO and how at affects the competition. That aside, I think NSW are a huge chance this year. I think the halves will be Pearce & Carney because of their previous combination at the Chooks. I think the following team is the right blend of players that can really do the job.

    1 Morris / Hayne
    2 Hayne / Morris
    3 Jennings
    4 Lawrence
    5 Uate
    6 Carney
    7 Pearce
    8 Weyman
    9 Buderis
    10 TLL
    11 Lewis
    12 Stewart
    13 Gallen
    14 Watmough
    15 Williams
    16 Sims
    17 Hunt

    My winning blues team would go as follows

    1. B Stewart
    2. Hayne
    3. Lawrence
    4. Morris
    5. Uate
    6. Mullen
    7. Carney
    8. Weyman
    9. Ennis
    10. Gallen
    11.Watmough
    12.Williams
    13.G Stewart

    14. Snowden
    15. TLL
    16. A Sims
    17. Buderus

    Better backs than QLD,poor halves but Mr 40-20 is a must for origin as is Carney because we have nobody else,Buderus to come on at 60 minutes to relieve Ennis

    The backrow ****s all over anything QLD can produce but the front row has no depth whatsoever

    as a QLD supporter, the thought of ricky/people leaving t-rex out of their NSW team makes me happy :) !!!
