I'm really struggling to fill out the City team, partly because my knowledge of Brisbane and SE Queensland is very poor so I have a bunch of players who I don't know where to put.

At a quick glance the Country team looks very dominant. They have some really good players and a lot of depth such that I've got about 5-6 really good players who I can't fit in.

I don't know where Ben Te'o goes either. Hibiscus Coast isn't in the City or the Country :I.

I think Cherry-Evans is originally from NQLD

Barba and Sandow would be other halves options for QLD Country

Is this hypothetical thing Brisbane v the Rest?

Lachlan Maranta is from Wests Panthers, Daniel Vidot from Souths Acacia Ridge so there's two outside back options for City.

I'd probably have Aiden Guerra (NQLD way I believe) ahead of Cooper

What does Ipswich count as anyway (Hanc?)...Martin Kennedy apparently played there.

I couldn't find anything about where he is originally from so I just went off his junior club, which was the Redcliffe.

I've got a few more City players now; Josh Papalii, Martin Kennedy and Daniel Vidot.

Who did Barba play for before he played for Norths?

Barba is from Mackay and I'm pretty sure he played junior reps with Cherry-Evans at some stage.

I had kind of been looking at "City" as the general South East Queensland zone. So Brisbane (inc. Ipswich and Logan), Gold Coast and then up to Sunshine Coast and the Moreton region.

I'm a bit sketchy on that whole area though.

50/50 for me. I rate Cooper pretty highly. I think Guerra played his junior football up in Townsville.

Should probably adjust this slightly, I hadn't realised that Mudgeeraba and Burleigh were in the Gold Coast area.

Just the greater Brisbane area including Logan and Ipswich :P

This will bring about the Inglis Conundrum again how does he qualify for City when he lists his junior club as Bowraville Tigers a club in NSW's Country.

It only becomes an issue if people want to have a whinge about it and rehash material that has been done to death.

He played for Norths and he plays for Queensland now. Pretty clear cut IMO.

Isn't Thurston from Souths Sunnybank?...not that it makes much difference.

Yeah he is, my mistake.

You know it will.

Besides if hyperthetically this took place they'd have to play under the new Origin rules.

I think it'd be more like Sth QLD v Nth QLD. Draw the line at Rocky I guess. A few Years ago the Townsville bulletin put together a hypothetical Nth QLD rep team as Tallis was saying they would beat Sth QLD. They had a pick of Slater in the QLD jersey and coloured it green.

QRL counted Ipswich as Country when they played City v Country- City was Brisbane.

Marty played for Norths and the Jets in the Ipswich.

When did Queensland play City-Country? I'd be interested to see how they defined the boundaries.

Born in Mackay, played juniors for Reddy- his family are an institution there. Back to Mackay for teenage years then back down to Brisbane for one year at 19 before Manly picked him up.

QRL have always done it up till about two years ago.

We played an Origin Selection game in '87 too, that was Brisbane based v Sydney based players.

Didn't realise that. Queensland Cup based players?
