    Though having said that, Ponga will definitely be in the squad from the beginning for game 2, and if Slater can't play, will see his debut, if he already won't from the bench in G1 or 2.

    Morgan looked ok at fullback, but he isn't the gamebreaker that Ponga is in that position. They lacked any sense of creativity, where is their spark without Thurston, Smith and Slater :giggle:

    I can understand the reasons for not putting Ponga in, particularly lack of preparation, but seeing what Milford dished up in the limited time he had makes me feel like Morgan will stay in the 14 jumper and Milford will drop out.

    If he's fit Slater will get his spot back, Morgan to the bench and Ponga will cool his heels as 18th man. If the series is lost, Kevvie will definitely give Ponga a run off the bench even if Slater is still fit.

    For mine I thought Morgan was below standard.

    Michael Morgan off injured. Ponga looks more likely to play game 2.

    As far as I am concerned I am happy with any QLD player being below standard

    Joey just told a good joke on the game wrap up.
    He said he was in Newcastle and everyone was asking him about Ponga, and he said "let's see if he gets a grandstand named after him".
    (it was a joke people).
