    43 flights a day from China when coronavirus broke out lol.

    Why don't we just hand over China the country already. They're going to colonise it in the next 5-10 years anyway and we'll all be killed/enslaved.

    Surely Staggs will get picked if he holds his form. What do they do with Wighton (probable selection) and Mitchell (possible selection)?

    I don’t think Staggs will get near the side.
  4. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Mitchell and Trbojevic piss it in.

    I like Staggs tho. Id pick him over Wighton who did nothing last year.
  5. Alex AJ O'Driscoll

    Nah, Wighton a shoo in. Wasn’t amazing last year but there’s no way they’re picking Latrell or Staggs.

    There’s no way it’s being played anytime in the near future anyway.
  6. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    I was giving my opinion. I agree Wighton will probably be picked. Fuck knows why.
  7. Magic AJ Parker

    Staggs isn't a better option than either at centre.

    Needs to learn how to set up his winger first of all.
  8. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Wighton doesnt set up shit either tbf.
  9. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Staggs is an absolute weapon, definitely in the top 3 centres for NSW. But he really shouldn't come into contention. Trbo, Mitchell and Wighton all well ahead of him.
  10. Magic AJ Parker

    No but he’s at least proven he has the temperament to handle it at that level and has far more experience.

    NSW doesn’t need to rush sub 50 game youngsters with potential. Kid has potential but needs to prove himself over a much longer period of time.
  11. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Pretty much this. Staggs has potential, but will most likely debut from the bench, or when Trbo is injured in the coming years.
  12. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Probably. I don't think Wighton has proved much really but it's a moot point for me. Mitchell and Turbo are so easily the best options for mine. Between those two and Tedesco, just so much firepower.
  13. Boobidy BJ Gemmell


    Pretty much picks itself. Hopefully they fuck it up and pick Wighton at 6, Pearce 7
  14. Lukic L Popovic

    I wouldn't change last years back 5. Maybe Mitchell for Wighton depending on how he's going and Freddy's openness to it, but otherwise no need to fix what ain't broke.
  15. Cribbage RG Cribb

    It's highly unlikely this will actually go ahead IMO. They're only pushing on with the club stuff because everyone will go broke if they don't.
  16. Toolman TR Man

    They'll probably do it at the end of the season instead of internationals surely.. it is a better money maker for them and things should be fine by then.
  17. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Most likely will go ahead after the season. Letting the GF affect the selection is only a positive for QLD.
  18. Tartmaster AJ James

    If they do the full comp isolation I can definitely see them doing origin, whether it's mid season or post season.

    If they keep doing as they're doing (which they can't for too much longer imo), I'd imagine there would be no origin
  19. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    I don't think they'll pick Mitchell TBH. It's fashionable for the media/commentary experts to heap shit on him at the moment. There is bad blood between him and Freddy, and Gus's opinion would still hold sway among their selectors. Unless he really turns things around I can easily see Staggs taking his spot.
  20. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    I'm hoping Fittler goes for guys like McLean ahead of Haas.
