Its funny how NSW doesnt play games with injury/illness like QLD always do.
If someone is hurt in the NSW camp - you know that they are genuinely hurt.
If someone is hurt in the QLD camp, its always said with their tongue hanging out the side of their mouth.
PS I am fucking loving the new faces in the NSW this year. It's great for our future even if we dont win this year's series, which is looking more and more likely.
Walker (shit pick as a bench utility but at least he is playing centre now)
With the young core of Fifita, Klemmer, Cordner, Woods, Dugan, Jackson (who I dont think should be there) as well - im loving how the side will look in a few years. Plus carty floating around
Thats 7 blokes picked in the side to debut this series (ignoring graham's suspension) - and its only game 2. Im loving it. All we have to do is bring Tedesco in somewhere and we look like we are in good shape. I wouldnt even mind tedesco bring put on the wing over Fergo, or on the bench, or at fullback with moylan on the bench/playing 6 when he starts to do it at club level. You just cant leave a player like Tedesco out of the side.
Not so excited about this year's series prospects of winning - but so happy to see they are moving past older guys like Scott/Hoffman as well as Pearce (and Gallen soon) - and bringing in great young guys.
