    Quite ironic that Slater's inability to throw the left handed pass actually ended up winning us the match. His ball was too far out in front of Morgan and made him motor an extra half-yard. Holds Morris up, Hayne slightly and understandably overreads, and Gagai cuts in to score.

    Darius is out of Game 3 apparently with a broken thumb. Oates obviously straight in. If that cunt Walters brings O'Neill back I will lose my shit.
  3. Alec AD Funkotron

    I think they might chuck Morgan or Munster there.
  4. Magic AJ Parker

    Pearce was very poor. He didn't get enough credit for his role in the first game where he was instrumental in our style of play but on the flip side he needs to be held responsible for the stupid direction of our attack especially in that second half.

    I don't think there was a good half on the field though tbh. Execution of kicking was U20's standard.

    Gillett would get monstered at lock in Origin against NSW's pack.
  6. Paddy P Orr

    Morgan should imo. He's done a decent job filling in at centre.

    Just can't get over Morgan's flick pass to Gagai. That was fucking awesome.

    Nah fuck that. His defence isn't good enough and his metreage is shite.

    The starting middle is fine. We just need Papalii to perform as he usually does.

    It was Slaters speed that one the match. Maloney came out of the line to make the tackle on Slater as he knew he was beaten for speed. Gagai ran in the gap where Maloney would be have been.

    That's a pretty strange way of saying he won you the fucken game.

    There have definitely been some tries gone begging for Queensland due to some pretty desperate defence, however they haven't come off quality ball movement or slick set plays. Queensland I feel have been awfully poor in that area and our defence has read everything beautifully. Save from the McGuire break on Wednesday, I feel a lot of your attacking flair has just been keeping the ball alive and going side to side trying to catch out some lazy defenders. Even coming out of your own half we're limiting you to such short yardage sets.
  12. Wilson SB Wilson

    Yeah definitely wasn't his best game. His finish is exactly why he should be in the team though. He wasn't given any other opportunities than that save from a few terrible Boyd passes. Even wasn't targeted in the kicking game where he could have shown how strong he is bringing the ball back.
  13. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    You're not very bright, are you...
  14. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    That's part of it, yeah. Morgan's positioning was much more important.
  15. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    My only real problem was I'd like to have seen him do a bit more work from our end.
  16. Mr Fourex MR Fourex

    ....... he could have got a lot more involved. Oates would have.
  17. AVA T Delonge

    JT apparently needs surgery and it goneskies for the season. Rip QLD.
  18. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    A fair bit of blame for NSW's lateral play needs to be shouldered by Pearce/Maloney but so does Peats and mostly Laurie Daley. Jack Bird should be dropped. If he's not going to play centre, there is no place for him in the team. It's not his fault and I do think he should be there ahead of Dugan but under Loz it's never gonna happen.

    How much of a difference would a genuine strike weapon from acting half have made in the last 25? A Tyrone Peachey, even bloody Farah could turn a match or straighten them.

    Daley has no idea what's needed by the no.14. He's picked two centres (Walker and Bird) and entertained playing Moylan, a fullback, there. So misguided.
  19. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Yeah that's pretty gay. What a shame he doesn't get a home send off. Devastated.
  20. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Well if his last play in Origin is that conversion I guess it's a fitting way to end.
