    lol @ it.

    I knew Manly winning would mean Watmough and the Stewart brothers would definitely make the squad, but Cherry-Evans? Really?

    And I'm not even going to get started on that fact that Tony Williams has been picked. I'm just going to keep telling myself it was a typo. I mean, at least the other Manly blokes who got picked got picked because they played well in the final series; Tony Williams was a joke in the grand final - he got picked purely because he happened to play for the premiers. He didn't even contribute to that fact on the day in any way ffs.

    Sheens said before the GF that DCE would be picked. It's not a surprise to me. Tony Williams being picked is an out and out disgrace.

    Farah, Galloway and Lawrence? Boy, good thing we don't have Meninga as coach cause otherwise there'd be bias in the

    That team is the best we could get it won't get picked though. We'll be stuck with Glenn Fucking Stewart in the back row somewhere, Lawrence will end up in the centres somewhere because Sheens can't fathom the fact that his team doesn't have any test quality players other than Benji. You don't coach the Raiders anymore fuckwit, you'd don't house then stars anymore. Tony Williams will get a go and the media will suck him off as being an "X" factor player and impact and shit but he'll make less than 50m, make about ten tackles and fall off hall of them.Don't even get me started about Farah, this cunt can't even get a run in Origin because he's not up to it and Sheens just leapfrogs him into the Aussie team, fucking ridiculous, he'll probably wear 14 too and we'll have two halves wasting squad positions.

    Yeah Williams getting picked is a disgrace. Two decent performances against the Cowboys and Broncos is certainly not justification for being picked. The Daily Telegraph got it pretty spot on with a GF rating of 4/5-10.

    G Stewart deserves to be picked with how awesome he was in the final.
  11. Hunter AD Hunt

    Benny to stop naming Lewis in the fucking centres.

    Farah is the 2nd best hooker, he's picked as Smith's backup.
    Galloway has been one of the best props this year, definitely up there with the likes of Scott, Civo etc. He's a fine pick.
    Yeah Lawrence is a shit pick w/e, he's NSW's best centre though outside of Lyon. Tate should've been picked, especially given there's no right centre in the squad.
  13. Alec AD Funkotron

    Watmough is there in case some women need bashing.
  14. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    I don't have a problem with Farah being picked as long as he only plays if needed - I.e. isn't in the team unless Smith is injured. My comment about bias relates to the fact that there are three Tigers in the squad when there clearly shouldn't be, which I will adumbrate on below.

    Even if I granted that, which I don't (Civo and Scott were miles ahead of him), what else has he done? One good season doesn't warrant Test selection. What has he done in Origin?

    Tim Mannah deserves to be there ahead of Galloway. I'd also have Hannant there over him.
  15. morgieb MC Burridge

    Why not? He was a centre for a big proportion of his career and it ain't like he's the only cunt that named him as a centre.
  16. crowley DA Crowley

  17. Hunter AD Hunt

    He hasn't played centre since 2007.....
  18. Alec AD Funkotron

    Actually I started thinking Rob Lui, it's more recent an he's done it multiple times.
  19. Alec AD Funkotron

    I'm happy Hannant isn't in the side at least, he's been average for like 2 years now.
  20. Lukic L Popovic

    As a bench prop, which he most likely will be, he's a far better option than Hannant and is marginally better than Mannah.

    If he's not given a chance in origin, why should it prevent him from getting a sot? NSW management ineptitude shouldn't deprive him of a chance in the Aus team if he gets in.
