    gillett & Frizzell are both right side players, either papali or cordner will start on the left


    imo, given both papa and friz can play middle aswell, i think the bench will work better with both of them on the bench

    Interesting arguments re: the Fifita scenario. Personally I couldn't care less that he's not playing and am pretty OK with the non selection. Does his form warrant selection for Australia? Sure, 100%. Is the guy an absolute bellend that I wouldn't pick in a mates park team let alone a team to REPRESENT Australia... Yup.

    The side is inundated with Boyd if you count Cordner too.

    Fairly close to a sure bet

    friz played left in origin and killed it.
    Cornder prob will start on the left with Gillett on the right with Merrin at lock tho.
    I would start friz on the left with Gillett and Merrin tho.

    Papalii will be on the bench.

    Maybe Friz wont make the actual team??

    cordner killed in game 1 and plays left week in, week out

    i think cordner/gillet/merrin should be the backrow

    i think the bench will be morgan
    2 of the 3 backrowers who can all play edge & middle thaiday/papa/frizz (i'd go papa and frizz)
    1 of the 2 pure middle players Boyd/klem (i'd go klemmer)

    i'd say all the people mentioned in this post will get a run at some stage and assuming we make the final, the best performing will make up the team


    just like i also believe all of fergy/val/dugan and o'neal will all likely get a run, but only 2 will make the final team (i think mansour is a lock for a wing spot)

    i think friend and maloney are the only 2 guys with a good chance at coming home without a run

    Cordner will be there, and deservedly so. He's been close the best wide running forward in the game for a couple of years now when not injured, and this will put him running off Thurston with Inglis the option outside him. Tasty.

    Papalii deserves a starting spot with the year he's had in both club and origin games, and can play in the middle. He might play lock rather than Merrin or he might be the unlucky guy who makes the bench. I'm a big fan of Merrin so can take either personally. Papalii coming off the bench would do an awesome job, as he did in origin.

    well mansour and woods are out of the first test in perth so you would think that Holmes will make his debut and boyd will be on the bench. Thaiday, Klemmer or Papalii may end up starting in the front row

    Agree with your bench LG.

    Merrin is probably lucky that the squad make-up lacks pure front rowers and has mostly wide running backrowers because realistically his only real competition for lock would be Klemmer and I suspect he'll be required in the prop rotation.

    Cordner/Gillett seem the most likely 2nd row option selected but I wouldn't be surprised to see Papa get a run on in front of one of them (Mal loves him).

    Hahaha, I figured grouping you with the accountants would be like fishing in a barrel with dynamite mate but the opportunity was just too good to pass up.

    To answer your questions above though, yes, yes you do. Not sure what relevance that holds to your profession though.

    Pffft. Accountants have a great sense of humour. Here's a few examples.

    Did you hear about the accountant who had constipation? He worked it out with a pencil.

    There are three types of people in this world, people who can count, and people who can't.

    What do accountants use as contraception? Their personality.

    There are 10 types of people in this world, people who understand binary and people who don't.

    How many accountants does it take to wallpaper a room? One if you slice him thin enough.

    a few more to further illustrate how awesome we are


    Why do accountants make good lovers? They're great with figures.

    What is the definition of accountant? Someone who solves a problem you didn’t know you had in a way you don’t understand.

    What's the difference between an accountant and a lawyer? The accountant knows he is boring.

    What do you call an accountant who is seen talking to someone? Popular

    If we had a "dad joke" thread I'd suggest putting this in there but TBH I don't even think this hit the highs of a dad joke.

    Guess it's true what they say about accountants, only economists find em funny.

    In short, CJ, CJ, who the fuck is CJ?
    CJ was Craig Johnston on Sportal.  He was still around when you joined but stopped playing DT so only posted in the League section.  He was very, errrr, average with both his numeracy and grammatical skills.  Funniest thing is he would stuff up pretty much every time he tried to count or work out dates etc but never learned to double check before he posted in all those years.  Then he'd cop a battering and get frustrated like a 9 year old repeating Grade 1 for the 3rd time.

    He was 'Raffamatta' before that account was permabanned, so also gets referred to as Raffa sometimes.  We think Raffa was a closet Broncos fan even though he pledged allegiance to the Slipperies.  He spent more time in the Broncos thread than the Parra thread and he lived in Brisvegas.  Him and KFP were best of mates, not  lol!

    CJ also believed that Jacob Loko was literally the Second Coming of Christ and would go on to be the best Centre in the history of the game.  The best way to get CJ to bite was to suggest that Loko would make a better backrower than a centre.  Worked a treat EVERY FUCKING TIME  Lol .  And by every time, literally at least one poster would lay that bait out each week, and he took it every single time!

    Speaking of accountant's, CJ's wife was apparently a very successful accountant who earned more money in a month than the rest of us put together in a year!  Again though, Raffa maths was not kosher maths!

    CJ left us when his real name was apparently revealed.  A pretty shit act by whoever did it, but CJ did make quite a few enemies.  He was a prolific poster and I for one miss him for that.
