    So Will Chambers is out of origin with a 3 month injury. Slater is gone, so the outside backs are looking thin, particularly with Munster ruled out through internal suspension.

    Of the 5 positions available:
    Boyd and Inglis are locks
    Gagai is probably a lock
    Oates is probably most likely of the rest
    The 5th spot will be a toss up with some players who were long shots at the start of the season now in contention - Feldt, Holmes (was he one of the 8 suspended players?), Barba, maybe left field with Morgan playing fullback, Moga if he storms back from injury, O'Neill (yuck) & Edrick Lee (yuck). Maybe a few others I've forgotten.

    Is Jack Reed eligible to switch allegiance? I don't think he's played for England for a while. Perhaps Hodges can put the boots back on...

    Holmes and lee both suspended

    I thought they stopped players switching between the major nations ? Could be wrong


    I think feldt will get the 5th spot

    List of eligible players here:
    http://www.qrl.com.au/state-of-origin/eligible-players.html

    Didn't realise Auva'a was a QLDer. He'd be close. Mbye out of position is a chance as well I guess.

    I'd probably go:
    Inglis
    Boyd
    Gagai
    Auva'a
    Oates

    or for the sake of only having rookie wingers:
    Boyd
    Oates
    Inglis
    Gagai
    Feldt or Holmes (I'd pick Feldt personally)

    I checked and Reed only played for England in 2011. I'd prefer him in the centres before Feldt, Holmes or Auva'a are selected, but if we're going to "bend" the rules with international eligibility, I'd prefer we bent the suspension rule first and put Munster at centre.

    Auva'a has been 18th man behind Bryson Goodwin and Hymel hunt twice this year, you have better options

    Edrick Lee was the other outside back suspended (+ Milf, Hunt, Napa, Wallace & Grevsmuhl).

    Regarding Reed switching nations, I had a quick rule and it doesn't seem to differentiate between the 3 major nations and other countries, but perhaps there is a separate agreement between those countries.

    https://www.nrl.com/portals/nrl/RadEditor/Documents/2015/AboutUs/StateofOriginEligibilityExplained.pdf

    To qualify for
    State of Origin you must be eligible and elect to play for Australia and have not
    represented another Tier
    1 Nation at Senior Level
    (England/New Zealand).

    maybe reed can play for australia upon further review but it seems not QLD

    yep, they were the 6. with munster and holmes the original 2


    i think you guys are ok atm. feldt and oates both playing well

    boyd
    oates
    GI
    Gagai
    Feldt

    thats not a terrible backline, if you lost either boyd or GI between now and the start, it will start to look iffy


    if you did suffer another injury, i to think you'd be better with morgan at fullback then bringing in say justin o'neill

    Yeah Boyd has to be FB now because of that injury. Oates and Feldt as wingers is tolerable.

    I think they will line up with a second rower in the centres

    GI
    Boyd
    Morgan
    Gillett
    Feldt

    And leave out a bloke who played origin last year to get some experience for this year knowing full well that Hodges was retiring? Yeah right...

    He's a better option than Inglis.

    No it doesnt. If NSW select Pearce it means QLD wins origin.

    i think boyd has actually been playing quite well too, certainly better then inglis


    plus, with boyd and GI being clearly their 2 best backs, there is no way you want one of them on the wing

    Playing Morgan at FB isnt a back option at all.
    I would rather Boyd there than Morgan. At least you know boyd isnt really dangerous running it back.

    i think 1 or 2 more injuries and it becomes a massive chance, would QLD go back to DCE as utility then ?
