    Agree with most of these but Cody Walker went missing once again last night. I just don't think he's origin quality to be completely honest. Should've been either Wighton or Keary in the number 6 jersey and Walker at 14.

    Personally, I don't think it's right to entirely blame Cody Walker.
    To my mind, he's always been a player that comes into his own on the back of a dominant team performance (e.g. game 2, or when Souths were running hot at the end of this season), I can't recall a time when he's been the sort of player to bail his team out when they're getting out-enthused.
    So if you select a guy and expect them to turn into something they've not really been before, then that's on the selectors (and maybe they read too much media and didn't give Queensland the respect they deserve). Walker is probably a great selection in a dominant team (e.g. if he was selected to rep. Australia, he'd probably go great guns).

    On the other hand, Wighton always seems more likely to be quiet in mismatched games where Canberra dominate. In tight games and high-pressure games he seems to be at his best - to quote a cliche "a big match player".
    If I were a Queenslander I'm probably happy to NSW see anyone else selected at 5/8 over Wighton - I always think it's a fair strategy to do what your opposition wouldn't want you to do.

    I dont know what will take this rotten feeling away re Origin. U cunts have got us under lock n key.

    I agree, although I would love to see a Luai Cleary 6, 7 combo. Not havinng actual centres hurts. Losing Morris exposed a gap in the talent pool . Mitchell should be there and would love to see cotric or Ramien find form.

    Yeah this was an interesting one. Seemingly out of nowhere. Sounds like we've offered overs for a few years and he's jumped at the cash.
    Thought he was going well for Souths. Gives us great second row cover. Guess he'll be fighting with Murchie for that last bench spot.

    Souths have got Jai Arrow coming in. Souths did the right thing letting him look elsewhere even though he was contracted

    2022 start for the time being unless he’s released early which is unlikely as he’s 1st backup to Edwards with Aekins gone

    Bayley is a better player than Murchie for sure.

    If it was possible for Souths to finish higher than first, they probably would.

    Michael Gordon effectively sacked by the Titans after being arrested on what sounds like drug supply charges (MDMA and coke)

    Thats weird, was sure that they already had 30 players signed for next season before this signing.

      Current date/time is Sun Nov 29, 2020 1:08 am
