Last wing spot is pretty open. Yow Yeh would be ideal but he is going to be out. Could go with Neilsen or O'Neill. Or you could even move Tate back out to the wing and keep Hodges at right centre but that really be well down the list of options.

How would your bench stack up Fourex? Four forwards?

Harrison is a mistake.

So is leaving out Hodges......

Is he eligible for QLD? I know his mum is from a small pacific nation (Vanuatu, I think?), but I'm not sure if he was born there or in Australia, and if he meets the new criteria. I do think he'd be a good fit in the QLD Origin side, though.

Of course he is.

Well, that's definitely in Queensland, and answers that little problem. Cheers.

Thanks, but for some reason my work network does not like that site, access is blocked.

14. Ben Barba - We don't need anymore playmakers (i.e DCE) when we have Smith, Cronk, Thurston. More options would be better
15. Ben Hannant
16. Ben Te'o - impact on the right edge
17. Sam Thaiday - as a prop only, he only worked well with Lockyer on the right edge

Thaiday is a poor prop in the NRL.

Still deserves to be in the team, this isn't NSW

apart from a couple positions, the QLD team picks itself

1. Slater; 2. Boyd; 3. Inglis; 4. Hodges; 5. Tate; 6. Thurston; 7. Cronk; 8. Scott; 9. Smith (c); 10. Shillington; 11. Thaiday; 12. Harrison; 13. Myles... 14. Te'o; 15. Hannant; 16. Parker; 17. Cherry-Evans

Probably will but I don't think it should.

The salient point that NSW clings to when acknowledging their 7th series loss in a row last year, is that QLD only got over by the skin of our teeth .

IMO there needs to be a couple forward changes.......and the more the season goes on the more I am assured that GI will kill it for QLD at fullback and that Slater can still add his own touches from the wing.

Inglis has at the moment got attacking players so intimidated that the mere sight of him looming up on them as they make a break has them shitting themselves to the point that they lose control of the ball and voluntarily fall meekly to the ground.

He is fending off would be defenders at will ........would you kick the ball to him?

A weapon in attack and defence.

He will be wasted now going back out to the centres.

I tend to agree re: Inglis at fullback. It has to be the potential to be a big mistake that NSW will capitalise on, although knowing NSW most likely not.

Realistically though, Slater will be fullback as long as Qld wins

Not at prop though. Players 'deserve' to be in the team because they add something to it. Thaiday at prop adds nothing to the QLD team, in fact they'd be better off just leaving Scott or Shillington out there for longer rather than playing Thaiday in the front row.

You play Thaiday in the second row (on the right edge) where he belongs or not at all.

i understand the argument about Inglis at fullback... but i think Inglis is a far better centre than Slater is a winger... so i think it makes sense to keep things as they have been during this run of victories by the Maroons

1.Slater (inglis makes a better centre then slater does a winger)
