I think we should allow the reserves to start on the field, too. That way, we MAY have a chance. smile

Although Daley seems to have the same fascination for Mitchell Pearce as Stuart did, apart from that, thay've got a pretty good team. I reckon they are all over Qld in the forwards, and Maloney should more than cover up Pearce's shortcomings. I'm also as happy as Larry to see Ryan Hoffman in there. He was one of the scapegoats a few years ago (along with Nathan Hindmarsh) when NSW lost, and he's far too good a player to be kept out for too long.
Personally, I'm backing NSW in SOO 1, in a close one.

Josh Reynolds has edged out John Sutton to get a bench spot for NSW when he replaces the injured Kurt Gidley in Game 1

I've always thought that Sutton was just a tad short of good enough for Origin, but in this case, I reckon he might have been the better pick. With his size, he can slot into lock or 2nd row as well as 5/8. If Pearce has his usual game, Maloney can switch to halfback and Sutton play at 5/8.
Mind you, Reynolds is playing very well at the moment, but I just don't think he gives as many options as Sutton does.

I think they were thinking if Robbie Farah goes for a rest then Josh Reynolds is the perfect pick to slot into dummy half cause he is small where as John Sutton is too tall to play hooker if needed

So, if Farah needs a rest, then he probably shouldn't be there anyway....

NSW were the better team in Game One. Qld showed me little until Parker and Teo came on, but having said that, whty did NSW still need help from the refs to score both tries? The first one was a direct result and the second was an indirect result.
And I don't think that anyone can justify why Gallen (who I think is a machine) was not sent off, or at least sin-binned, for his assault on Myles.
But well done NSW anyway.

Qld side looks stronger, Harrison has been playing injured for 18 months.
I'm not totally convinced that Cherry-Evans is a utility player. I'd love for him to come good, but I'll sit on the fence for now.
Funny how, before the 1st game, Qld's preparation was all over the place, what with Teo, Thurston and Boyd all being doubtful for differing reasons. This game. NSW is all over the place. Tamou and Ferguson suspended, 10 players under injury clouds...

You gotta love Origin!

I reckon QLD will win by 4 to set up for the decider in Sydney for NSW to win the series

QLD beat NSW last night 26-6 to level the series at 1-all to set the series decider in Sydney in 3 weeks as QLD totally outplayed NSW from start to finish


the lowlight of the origin was the sin-binning of 4 players i understand about sending Trent Merrin for punching but i don't understand how you sin bin Brent Tate,Justin Hodgers & Greg Bird

Apparently Tate went because he pushed Merrin, which allegedly started the melee. Hodges is up on a "contrary conduct" charge (which is a cover-all term used instead of saying "We have no idea what he did"), and Bird was just there.
I've said it before, Ashley Klein has no business being anywhere near a SOO game, either on the field or in the video box. He is not a good referee, and is totally overawed on such a big stage. What does Gavin Badger have to do to get a game?

The things I like about Badger are that (1), he doesn't make many mistakes, and (2), he actually looks like he's enjoying the game. He can be forceful enough to make his presence felt on the big stage, and he's a million miles in front of Klein.

I'm glad to see Cordner getting some recognition. He's been playing the house down this season, and will do the job if Gallen and Bird aren't fit.
I was surprised to see that Hayne is actually the most capped player in the initial squad. It seems like he hasn't really been a fixture at all, yet he's played more games for NSW than Gallen, Bird, Lewis etc. Perhaps that's an indication of NSW selectors' panic attitude in the past 5 or so years.
