    Woods should never have been there, Paul Vaughn will be though in 2020 if he stays consistent enough for Laurie

    Soft and stats don't tell the whole story. Start of the game while it was nil all he over runs his lines 2 times. Helps concede the 3rd and pivotal try as we fought back into the game.

    Not a leader in my eyes and lucky to be in the side.

    I'd like that idea if it wasn't 1 from 12.
    Stupid question, but is Nathan Cleary Aussie or Kiwi?

    The Blues only had to play normally in the second half of game 2 and they would have won the series.

    It was a woeful effort tonight by the Blues.

    There needs to be a lot of changes for game 1 next year.

    I know stats aren't everything and maybe I'm watching a different game but for me Cordner was at 80% and still put in a huge effort

    For mine he is a natural leader and yep he made a few errors and to say he shouldn't be there is wrong but each to their own

    Woods was off in this game but overall I think he has been pretty good for NSW in his Origin career and deserves another shot but Paul Vaughan impresses me too

    2018 is a long way off and alot will happen between now and then but there will be a few who have played their last origin for NSW you would think

    I'd have Graham over Jackson too personally, I also think James Roberts and Dylan Walker should be our centres

    Nsw Need to pick a side on form not favouritism. Only way they will ever win.
    Also blues lost 11 from 12. Just shows how useless they are.

    Well what do you guys expect?

    NSW goes into the series with two bad forwards and two bad backs. Frizell is not the required standard and Jackson is tackled with the ball far too often, when he does not lose it.

    Dugan and Hayne are very hot and cold. Dugan like a stick figure, can't pass and loses ball in tackles. Hayne is so far up his rear end sees himself as the be all and end all. Game 2 was the Blues IF he passes to an unmarked Morris instead of wanting his name in the headlines, and compounds this with that ball thrown into touch and a knock because he saw no reason to use his feet to step up to the ball.

    Daley, Fulton and company have been a bad influence on selections and coaching period.

    Just loved the commentary by old Ray on Gillett being from 'Bribie Island'. There are no islands in the Nambucca River.

    Maybe the next move will be to play a game in Melbourne again next year? Anyone who thinks SOO is for real believes in Santa. Get it roughie?

    i thought Joey summed it up perfectly in a few words last night when he said "NSW just don't get it".

    watching the broadcast after the game last night, there was no one more upset than Joey. not even the coach. His passion for it is undeniable which makes me think after last night if NSWRL did make the call to him and ask him to coach, he probably would even though he's said no before.

    As I see it nsw need Joey and Joey doesn't need nsw. He said last night he doesn't want the extra stress but he is exactly what nsw need.

    Frizell is close to the best line running backrower in the game, nowhere near close to bad. He was even playing injured too.

    Surely the next best fit player is better than an injured player
