    Nah, can't be this. Surely. You don't go from GI's successor to "left right out" in 2 months.

    Sure, he had a shit game, but.... apart from Cook and Teddy, there's no one QLD fears more, surely?

    this is what Johns, Finch, Daley and co all said. Listening to the matty johns podcast today - Finch gave a bit of insight into how fittler trained etc.

    Most said they wouldnt drop him, said that they would give him the chance to redeem himself in game 2.
    Would QLD prefer Mitchell or Wighton at left centre for the blues??? Fuck.. I know the answer to that every day of the week.

    Dropping him might cost Fittler his job.
    I cant believe he dropped morris for TTrbo too. Tommy killed it on the wing last year and should have just been a direct replacement for Cotric. Fittler must see TTrbo as the long term right centre for the blues.

    I’ll back Fittler. He’s been very good up until now so deserves the chance

    Personally, I would be giving him another go and saying - Fix this up or you're gone next game. At least give him a chance to correct it in the next game.

    It's best of 3, question is why not if. He's capable of the 1%ers but wasn't even close to it

    I’m expecting Mundine and his mum to be protesting the anthem somewhere.

    Lol

    Great performance

    from the other thread:

    if cleary it out, i think freddy only considers 3 options

    Pearce/maloney
    Keary (if he plays this week)/maloney
    Wighton/Maloney - with trell back at centre if he performs this week


    assuming the other 16 are healthy, there is only one other selection decision to make, who does klem come in for ?


    its clearly any of saifiti, sims and finucane

    all 3 did their job last night, the 2 debutantes in particular were strong. i'd least want to drop finucane out of the 3.


    Saifiti had a great debut but i'd probably still lean towards bringing klem back in a like for like swap and playing the rest of the team just like last night

    Rabbit never had the courage of his convictions. And if I remember the Sizzler thread, he wasn't that great at maths either.

    Graham will play 6. He took over and complements Maloney well. We’d be looking for the least disruptive method when bringing someone in and that’s the one. You could bring Klemmer into the starting side and put Safiti back to the bench to take Graham’s open spot. J Turbo doesn’t need to go to the middle and keeps him wider with Frizell.

    Why would you not want JTrbo in the middle?

    Jturbo will be in the middle for sure

    i get the klem in for wade graham talk but imo a bench of Saifiti, vaughn, sims & murrey doesn't offer enough versatility if we did suffer an injury happens. if we move graham to 6, i still feel either saifiti or sims miss out for a guy with some experience in other positions, maybe matterson ?

    i don't really think we need 3 full time props personally, Jake, dale and murrey are gonna play atleast 130+ minutes between them, say Klem and vaughn play atleast 80 between them. that's at least 210 of the 240 middle minutes taken up and its probably more like 220-225.

    i think i'd rather that other short middle stint be a guy like sims who also offers an edge option if needed and i'd hate for us to pick another prop and have jake off the field for to long because of it(like game 1), he is effective playing big minutes at this level. no reason to change that.

    our team is built around our middle being more mobile and getting quick play the balls to let cook and teddy do their thing, we don't need 3 full time props when we have guys like Jturbo, finucane and murrey do what they do

    I tend to think Saifiti was a direct replacement for Klemmer, and will be replaced by Klemmer.
    They will then start with Klemmer and JTrbo in the front row.

    i agree

    i think if wade graham does move to 6, then ryan matterson is a bit of a like for like replacement for him on the bench too. probably the least disruption doing those moves

    i wouldn't rule out pearce getting picked tho. graham did a job but i still get the feeling freddy would rather go in with 2 full time halves with graham still coming off the bench. as good as graham was, alot went right for us on the night and made it pretty easy for him to slot in there

    exactly mate
    If Cleary is out IMO he goes with Pearce and Maloney.

    Can't really criticize the team for game 3.

    I mean, yeah Klemmer has been hard done by but you can see why fittler has stuck with the side that put on one of the best origin performances in history.

    Fittler made those of us questioning him look like idiots last time, I'll keep any thoughts I have to myself I think.
