Im currently being proven correct on the Morgan/Milford stuff, Morgan is playing, Milford isn't and rightfully so, because Morgan provides better utility and is in equally as good form, and i accept i may be proven wrong on Milford long term, but i doubt it. I just am baffled that i guy play some good footy early in the season and people seem absolutely amazed he isn't first guy on the Aus team sheet. Please, Morgan has done it at Origin level and in a GF, just like Boyd, we don't go (or shouldn't go) handing out Aus jerseys for less than half a season of good form.
Re Boyd at FB, i understand you don't agree with it and its your opinion and i respect that, you have an opinion, which you are entitled to, even if its wrong, no use us laboring the point. Boyd was the logical and correct decision at FB and so it has been proven, so we can move on from that.
Teddy is MILES off Hayne form and even Slater form for that matter. Its a bit like comparing Josh Hodgson with Cam Smith, I mean really, Josh is leading the Dally M's, is going great, but he isn't anywhere near the class of Smith at his best.
Less than half a season of good form?
Milford was the best player on the field in last year's gf. He was brilliant last year - he isnt there because Kev asked mal not to pick any of those banned QLD players. Its a valid argument.
I like morgan - and the utility argument - just comes down to opinion. I can call your opinion wrong too - but how long is a piece of string? Just because he was selected there - doesnt mean its the right call. Its just, The Call.
And I know youre a hayne fanboy, so was I, but if you think he is not even close to being as good as him or slater - youre wrong. Sure, he has only done it for a season, doesnt change the fact hes doing it right now and did it last season too.
This year so far, Josh Hodgson has been as good or better than cam smith. If he can keep doing it for a decade, he will go down as one of the greats. Same with tedesco. Boyd is a rep winger, he has played just about all of his rep on the wing, and thats where he should be playing.
Boyd is one of the great rep WINGERS. Its where he belongs in rep footy.
