    You lost me at Woods (though he did play okay for a change). McGuire would definitely be there based on game 1. Luckily teams aren't selected on the back of 1 game.

    Im not the biggest fan of woods but he had a great game 1.
    I stand by what I said.

    As long as you play for QLD, we don't get afforded the same luxury. IE Graham.

    Lol. Comparing Wade Graham, a repeat offender with carryover and 50% loading trying to take off JT's head, with Wallace, who was out of position after Ayshford changed direction after a forward pass went to ground.

    Was no worse than what McGuire did to Fifita on Origin 1, when he was held and couldn't see it coming.

    No it doesn't. Sam Burgess and Jorge Taufau got off for virtually identical scenarios. Add to it that Ayshford was actually well ahead of the ball when he changed direction into Wallace, you would have ran behind him had he not done that. That gets let off every day of the week at the Judiciary. Show me one like it that wasn't dismissed.

    While this is the origin thread and opinions can sometimes be heated and somewhat one eyed I think both NSW and QLD have both received some leniency at times regarding origin players. While this is not always the case, there are examples from both sides of the border. I might have to do some more research on the matter to refresh my memory however didn't Josh Reynolds escape suspension one year (I think it was a tripping charge or something) and suited up for NSW that week?

    I agree, Wallace's wasn't worse. Though if you're talking about suspension worthy incidents that the player got away with, you should have referenced the Cordner chicken wing that deserved a grade 2.

    Regardless of changing direction its still a shoulder charge to the head and neck area 
    He turns and leads with his shoulder, plenty of time for him to go in low on Ayshford

    bracing himself or not that is a shoulder charge

    Nrl judiciary committee chairman Cam Smith found Wallace not guilty due to the attacker Blake Ayshford deliberately running the ball up.

    I tend to agree if I am being honest.

    But i'd like to think that this outcome was purely based on common sense prevailing.

    It's honestly the stupidest fucking rule in the game and realistically does SFA to protect players anyway - would love to see some decent research on whether it has had any effect on players welfare because one thing for sure is that suspending blokes for incidental contact is by definition a waste of time.

    i agree with this


    he should have got suspended and guys like lolo who copped 2 weeks have the right to be filthy about it (like they should be filthy about surgess getting off) but even with him being a QLDer i don't really love the idea of him missing his origin debut over that

    rats and filth to the rescue i guess!

    the reason i like his selection is because QLD don't need to win the forward battle to win, they just limit the damage and slow us down, the periods they are on top, they still have the clearly superior spine to put enough points on the board

    their bench will be under alot of pressure but ultimately its a much better team then game 1


    starting cooper next to JT and moving papali to the middle over myles is massive upgrade to the starting team, as always first 20 will be vital and while the maroon bench is a bit of a ? their starting  pack is good enough to match ours

    Exactly, I can see papalii playing 13 or front row and they are relying on him for the hitups now - glasby is there to slow the ruck down, which he apparently does very well for melboune. He isnt there to run over anyone, he is there because Cam Smith trusts him to do the same thing he does for melbourne.
    As you said mate, if the QLD forwards can hold their own and keep it relatively even in the middle - the superior spine should get QLD home.

    This game will be well and truly won in the forwards for NSW or won in the backs for QLD - with the qld forwards holding their own in the middle.

    I didn't downvote this and I actually had a bit of a chuckle TBH.
