The first half of the season he was on the bench, the last few games he was alright, the last game he was great.
IMO - he is not half the player he use to be. At this stage in both their careers, he should not be getting picked in the australian team over someone like wade graham.
Oneil - no. Just no. Does not deserve to be there over guys like Hayne, Bird, Leilua, Croker and so on. He is a good player, but fuck me dead he is not one of the elite centres in the league or elite backs.
The non selection of fifita is fucking weird.
I hope they stick to it then, never pick another bloke who is under investigation by the integrity unit.
I'm going to ignore the first part about Thaiday and assume it is merely your anti-Broncos bias flaring up again.
As for the blokes you've picked over O'Neil, you are deadset kidding yourself.
Hayne was lucky to get a 1st grade start (and I personally think the Titans were going better without him).
Bird is still developing and still needs to cement a SOO spot like O'Neil has before I would consider.
BJ and Croker are solid selections but I personally think Canberra's success was team based rather than individual based, so I would have reservations with selecting either and certainly not over a bloke who has almost been the form centre over the last 2/3rds of the season.
With Fifita; I get that Greenberg is trying to achieve in terms of raising the standards of discipline among players - but you still need to balance this with reality and also fairness.
