    Apparently 75k tickets sold for the dead rubber.

    Gutho pick is top tier Freddy retardation.
    The whole bench really

    Best isn't a great pick, but he's about 8th in line so at least he won't be there next year (unless mass injuries again, or he just happens to play well this game and Fittler Fittlers)

    Echoing other people on Walker,
    Not against it, but why now?
    Surely this is the point you look to the future and play Burton or Hynes

    I'd pick Burton over Best, Walker and Gutho in this team
  3. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    I can see Walker as an option next year at 34. No reason to think he's slowing down.

    Burton's not an Origin standard half imo.
  4. Jake A Pimpkins

    Haven't seen many people calling for Burton in the halves, he'd be a good centre or utility where he can cover halves if needed.
  5. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Pretty sure everyone was calling for Burton to play centre instead of Best.
  6. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Was responding to Tart's comment above that he'd pick Burton over those three in their respective positions.
  7. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    How shit has Addo-Carr been. All the hate Fittler copped for not picking him last year, then he listens to the fans, and he plays like trash. lol, guarantee Freddy is thinking "fuck all of you."
  8. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Unlike some blokes, I actually think captaincy, especially in Origin is hugely important. Looking ahead I think Cleary is the obvious choice for NSW. Not too sure who it will be for Qld. Carrigan's name has been tossed up. Maybe Tino, maybe Munster. I think Grant eventually is a certainty.
  9. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Next captains are pretty obviously going to be Cleary and Carrigan.
  10. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Dont think Carrigan is that obvious...

    That was actually one of Freddy's good calls last year imo. If he's not in space, he's going to get ragdolled. They arent playing the Tigers here, you simply don't get that kind of space in Origin.

    Not to mention the fact he's giving a few inches and a number of kegs away to his opposite and with To'o having a mortgage on the other side, they have no real high-ball target on the wing.

    He's pretty well regarded by coaches/media (not the judiciary though apparently).
  13. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    He is. Munster isn't a captain, and Tino is captain via being the best player for the Titans.

    Carrigan is clearly best choice.
  14. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Munster does a lot of the talking in huddles and will be the only player over 30. Im not ruling him out. Happy either way.

    I think DCE has been a great captain. That try saver on Crichton gave his troops a huge boost purely because it was him doing it and then the break on the next play. Reminded me of JT.

    Yeah and his defence is shambolic.
  16. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    Pre game band a Freddy selection too?
  17. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Yeah here we go another Klein special.
  18. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    His ruck control is a joke. How are you blowing one ruck pen in that first 10.
  19. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Nice change of option by Munster. Good work from Fifita to break through Tedesco.
  20. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    They're cutting up our right edge...
