The policy of three former Broncos players being the selectors of the QLD team is highly fucked and needs to be changed. Especially seeing as none of them were forwards.
In fact the entire concept of selectors or advisors might as well be scrapped.
He's only 29, and is in career best form. 3 years minimum.
Wallace will start with Napa apparently. Makes sense. He's a workhorse and Papalii provides impact.
Boyd named at centre. Don't know if it's legit or Walters is foxing.
Makes more sense than having him in place of Oates on the wing tbh.
Thurston's had a minor knee injury at training apparently.
Reckon we'll make it a bit more of a contest; any team with Smith/Cronk/Thurston will be competitive, but we're really outmatched in the middle. Just want to see us defend like our lives depend on it.
We showed enough weaknesses on our edges defensivley to suggest QLD could win the game despite losing the teritotial battle.
Suggestions in the media that they will play for a slow ruck make sense if they're going to play a counter attacking brand of footy.
Will be an interesting game from a tactical POV.
Qld will obviously want an absolute mire of a ruck and a nice 7 metre offside all game to nullify the advantage in the forwards.
We pretty much got both of those in Game 1 and it did fuck all.
That's a gun set-up for the try.
Glasby 2 missed tackles, 2 NSW tries. Not worthy of this level.
Out of bounds on the full :laugh:
Huge tackles so late in the half. 16-6 a pretty solid lead but still early.
Qld's kicking game has been really poor.
Just given themselves no chance in wrestling back momentum.
QLD's kicking has cost us dearly. Smith on 3rd straight to Tedesco changed the match. All one way traffic afterwards. Then Thurston out on the full. Glasby has been totally out of his depth in defence. Chambers has been out of position all night.
The refereeing is just bullshit though. What do we have to do to get a holding down or offside penalty? 40 minutes and NSW didn't hold or stand offside once? Gimme a fucking break. We've been pinged 4 times for it.
Does Klemmers retarded goose step every run annoy the shit out of anyone else?
I mean I get that QLD have been laying in the ruck and offside but they're actually penalising us. Every time we play in Sydney like game 3 last year. We just cannot buy a fucking holding down or offside pen.
Such poor positioning from Queensland. The future isn't looking bright if we can't find some more quality forwards.
You've now had 2 blatant forward passes and taking out Dugan that didn't get called up though
Separate names with a comma.
