    Gagai is putting his hand up too. Cobbo is a winger pure and simple imo.
  2. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    He has been out performing Holmes this year fairly comfortably, Holmes defence has been fucking awful at times. It wouldn't be a surprise for Slater to make a call like that either.
  3. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Val is such an undercover spud. Really hope qld pick him in the centres
  4. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Yeah he's a liability. So is Cobbo. And made worse by having DCE and potentially Nanai inside. They've both got poor hands too.

    Much prefer a right edge with Kaufusi and Gagai.
  5. Magic AJ Parker

    Most of his tries are utilising his speed getting the ball on the outside of a winger, in broken play or chasing through on a kick. I don't remember him beating his opposing centre one on one.

    And I've just spent the last month praying to the gods of Rugby League that the rumours linking Cobbo & Gagai to the Roosters were horse shit so that's what I think of them.
  6. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    I think he is a genuinely good winger. Average centre, dud fullback.

    Yeah but you also think Billy Smith is good so your opinion of centres is kind of dogshit.

    Hammer is a huge threat. Silly to pretend otherwise.
  8. Magic AJ Parker

    Sure Hammer’s a threat but as I said not one on one which was within the context of the discussion.

    Don’t be so sensitive, it’s only Origin.
  9. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Within the context of potential liability playing someone like Watson at centre, rather.

    And a curious point too given you previous support of picking a specialist outside back on the bench. Hmm...
  10. Toolman TR Man

    Gagai is a woeful defender as well. I'd definitely take Holmes over Gagai, can't believe anyone would consider otherwise nowadays when the guy is way past his prime.
  11. Toolman TR Man

    Yeah but he does that better than anyone, guy is as lithe as a willow wand with perfect balance, even the slightest gap and he flits right through.
  12. Magic AJ Parker

    Wtf is a willow wand?
  13. Toolman TR Man

    Wand made from a willow tree.
  14. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Gagai has games where he defends like Brent Tate tho. Holmes is trash defensively every week. Gags is the better pick for Origin. Guarantee if Holmes wasnt our goal kicker he wouldnt be there.
  15. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Turbo probably out for the series. Murray out for game 1. Cleary in serious doubt for game 1. Moses will get 1 match. Walker and Latrell playing like dogshit.

    Gonna be interesting to see what Maguire does. To'o, S.Crichton, Haas, Koroisau and Yeo should be inked in as certainties imo.

    If they're fair dinkum, Angus Crichton at 11 with Liam Martin at 17 should be pencilled in to systematically break down Qld's right edge. Theyre kidding if Hudson Young is anywhere in the team.
  16. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Qld is far easier and more settled you can pretty much pick the team right now.



    All certainties imo.
  17. Jake A Pimpkins

    Moses will get 2 games I think.

    Agree with all your selections there, I don't love Yeo but with Murray out and Radley being a pom now (lol) we don't have much else of a choice.

    Cleary's out for 8 weeks. Unlikely play in game 2 either. Massive blow
  19. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Get McInnes in there
  20. Jake A Pimpkins

    I like him as a bench option, provides some coverage for Api if he goes down/can't play 80.
