    He was bending the line every run.
    Hoping freddy seen that and uses him more with the ball and less as a decoy runner

    I do wonder if Dan is quiet on field, he always has decent runs, but just not enough of them.
    5 runs for 68, but 3 of them were kick returns.

    100m in 33mins is a pretty good debut for big Dan.

    Was Dan injured? He came on for about 10 minutes in the 2nd half, and was taken off again.

    I think Freddy is just giving others a bit of a run

    Good run for dsaf. He will have learned a lot from that.

    100m in 34 minutes, mostly in his first stint so showed he can make metres at Origin level.

    Glasby will be ok.

    Sets up a good finish in game 3.

    Bit frustrating to see Dan do so many decoy runs, but it was a good plan to get the defence interested in the big boy and throw it to someone a bit more mobile instead.
    He did enough to get another run if Klem is not ready for game 3 I think. I don't think there is room for both.

    Thought Qld were ordinary but probably cause NSW went so well, hard to pick out a Qld player that stamped there game including Ponga but could probably name 6-7 for NSW who excelled especially Jake and Tom along with Maloney and Ado Carr, actually no bad player, good all round performances.

    Dan did a great job I thought every run he bent the line back. The progression for this kid is amazing, from where he come from with the knights and stuck with our club through hard times and now getting the rewards, I proud to see him in knights colours and hopleful for more years in knights colours:)

    Qld always gets two home games when each year one of NSW's allegedly two home games are switched to Melbourne, Perth and I think Adelaide next time we have the two games in Sydney, or should have. Turdburg's 'taking the game to new audiences' BS.

    Congrats to Mr Fittler. I did not think NSW had a chance with only two props and so many changes. I dips me lid to you Freddie.

    For mine Napa, Wallace and Hunt had very poor games.
