    NSW State of Origin side 2017

    Post by Pieman on Sat Mar 11, 2017 12:14 pm

    Well, because footy is back its time to start talking origin and what better way to start than by guessing what the NSW team will be this year. For the first time in a long time we look like we actually have the pack and firepower to beat QLD. This is my team - ill do what I want, then ill do what I think they will pick

    1. Tedesco - if he isnt picked at 1, you can fuck right off loz
    2. TommyTrbo
    3. Mitchell - if you dont pick mitchell this year, you can fuck right off loz
    4. Leilua
    5. Fergo
    6. Moylan
    7. Maloney
    8. Woods
    9. This is the biggest ? Prob farah I guess considering peats is made of glass.
    10. Boyd
    11. Cordner
    12. Friz
    13. Klemmer

    14. Merrin
    15. Graham
    16. Fifita
    17. Hayne

    I would love to fit JTrbo in there, but who do you leave out? Merrin??

    I think they will go with
    1. Hayne
    2. Mansour if healthy (if not healthy, prob bmoz or tedesco)
    3. Jennings
    4. Bird
    5. Fergo (if not healthy, mitchell)
    6. Maloney
    7. Pearce
    8. Woods
    9. Farah
    10. Boyd
    11. Cordner
    12. Jackson
    13. Merrin

    14. Fifita
    15. Graham
    16. Friz
    17. Klemmer

    I tend to agree. I'd love to see the 1st team but Loz will fuck it up and pick the 2nd team, lose origin again, get sacked and Des will pick the first team next year.

    I love watching Peachey play, but he has got that error or silly play in him.

    Please don't pic Ted at 1. Tat is worst case scenario for Queensland I reckon.

    Teddy is the 1. Moylan is the 6. Confirmed, from me.

    Johns thinks the halves will be Maloney and Pearce. He even went as far to say that Maloney HAS to be there.

    If Hayne gets picked in the 1 I'm swapping allegiances

    1. Tedesco
    2. Mansour 
    3. Bird/Jennings
    4. Dugan
    5. TTurbo
    6. Moylan
    7. Pearce
    8. Woods
    9. Farah
    10. James
    11. Cordner
    12. Frizell  
    13. Merrin

    14. Fifita
    15. Klemmer
    16. Vaughan
    17. Hayne


    I'd like to see something similar to this 
    James gets his deserved shot, Jumbo bench and Jayne covering the backs with Bird able to shift to backrow if needed


    Others considered 
    Tamou
    S.Boyd
    JTurbo

    latrell mitchell at centre ? because he scored a hattrick against the titans ?? he was actually very poor v's us week 2, i know you love your young players but geez hold your horses there pieman!

    my team. bolded players should be locks

    1. teddy
    2. Mansour (would be bold but not sure on his health), it not i could go tommy t
    3. ?? see below
    4. ?? see below
    5. Fergo
    6. Maloney
    7. Pearce
    8. Woods
    9. Farah - i hope someone else steps up but atm its his spot unless someone takes it
    10. Klemmer - bolded for being in the team, not necessarily this spot
    11. Cordner
    12. Friz - may be on the bench
    13. Merrin

    14. Fifita
    15. Graham
    16. Boyd
    17. Bird/Moylan/peachey

    centre is tricky

    BJ  is already showing signs of losing the plot the year after a good season
    jennings is probably a sure thing but never fills me with alot of confidence
    Bird ? maybe i guess
    Peachey, won't play origin at centre, maybe a utility
    Croker ? could be a good bet if he comes back alright
    mitchell ? not yet
    Jmoz - inglis is out so any argument for him is gone
    Dugan, probably the safest option but again with inglis out i feel like we should be going for a better option on the right


    i'm a huge aitken fan, i don't think he is as far off as what most others may

    Don't mind the look of Welshy and LG's team's and NSW should again rightly go into the series as red hot favourites.

    Agree with LG about the centre predicament too.
    BJ can't keep his head in a normal game, let alone SOO.
    Mitchell is way too soon.
    I don't rate Bird.
    Crocker/JMoz, will do the job if need be...but meh.

    If I was unfortunate enough to be a NSWelshman, my team would be:

    1. Tedesco
    2. Mansour
    3. Jennings - Fergo/Peachey a chance
    4. Dugan
    5. TTurbo
    6. Maloney
    7. Pearce
    8. Woods
    9. Farah
    10. James
    11. Cordner
    12. Frizell
    13. Merrin

    14. Fifita
    15. Klemmer
    16. JTurbo - Graham a chance
    17. Moylan - Peachey/Graham also a chance

    A few assumptions here, namely that Mansour is still unavailable (I don't really know how his injury is going), and that Hayne comes good somewhere near he used to be, not like the average stuff he is dishing up at the moment.

    What I'd pick:
    1. Tedesco
    2. Hayne (or Brett Morris if he doesn't improve)
    3. Bird (he did well when picked last year)
    4. Jennings (I doubt he'll get picked, but I'd have him there)
    5. Turbo
    6. Moylan
    7. Moloney
    8. Woods
    9. Farah
    10. Fafita
    11. Cordner
    12. Frizell
    13. Merrin

    14. Pearce
    15. James
    16. Tamou
    17. Klemmer

    What I think they'll pick:
    1. Tedesco
    2. Ferguson
    3. Bird
    4. Dugan
    5. Turbo
    6. Moloney
    7. Pearce
    8. Woods
    9. Farah
    10. Tamou
    11. Cordner
    12. Frizell
    13. Klemmer

    14. Moylan
    15. Fifita
    16. James
    17. Graham

    NSW depth and options look as good as I can remember. They'll have a strong team even if there are half a dozen worthy players miss out on the 17. Should be a great series again.

    Our obvious lack of depth is at 9. The plethora of options is mainly fullback but we've got a lot of great second rowers as well. If we can just make it all click, either way our future looks bright.

    If there wasn't a guy by the name of Cam Smith playing for QLD, then you'd say the depth is fine at 9 as well. Farah and Peats are two of the top hookers playing in the NRL (excluding Smith).

    Whose the bloke in bold? Does Robbie Farah have a brother playing I don't know about?

    Farah will go okay this year. He can still tackle, have a good kicking game, and organise from dummy half. At the tigers he either forgot how to run from dummy half, or was instructed or chose not to (and let's be honest, with a powder puff like Aaron Woods doing 25 hitups a match that don't stretch the defensive line, there probably weren't that many chances anyway to have a scoot from dummy half). I reckon the running game will be back this year with the Rabbits. I could be wrong though.

    halves are still the biggest issue, we generally have a fair few guys that are really good NRL halves but since joey and freddy left, we've had no one who could be consistently good at this level.


    in that time QLD have had 3 (JT, Cronk and locky) and the year we won DCE was in there because of injury



    Maloney will never be at the level of those 3 but doesn't seem to shit himself either.


    Pearce has had a million shots and never succeeded, he may never be able to but at club level, he is by far our most complete halve imo. i still find myself picking him for that reason

    I think Adam Reynolds kicking game was really under valued when we had him. I like the combo of him and Maloney however I don't think they'll go with that. Moylan is their future 6 however he can't defend in the line.

    Nope, after watching mitchell play fullback and wing last year, and centre this year - he is young, but clearly ready to be put there. He is the same age as GI when he was picked and the guy is a GI clone.

    Pick him on the wing or at centre.

    Mansour .. really? He will have played like 2/3 games by the time origin is around.

    Blood Tommy Trbo and Mitchell.

    Michael Jennings doesnt need to be there.
    Mansour will be too underdone.

    It amazes me that people dont want Latrell mitchell - the clone of GI there, or tommy trbo -yet want to pick Jennings and josh mansour.

    If the wingers are TTrbo and Mitchell and the centres are Dugan/Bird/Leilua I would be happy. Those 2 young freaks need to be in the side.

      Current date/time is Fri Oct 20, 2017 12:24 pm
