    Who was in your opinion the blues best on Wednesday night?

    For me it was Farah, he dominated the game (especially in the first 20)..his kicking game was great (except for that kick out on the full with 5 minutes to go) and had some great runs out of dummy half.

    Jennings, Hayne or Gallen. But I went with Gallen on this one.

    Hayne was surprisingly good in Origin this time around!

    Hayne was surprisingly good? When is he not good.

    Agreed on Bird, thought he was a stand out.

    Hayne has won NSW Man of the Series awards in 2007 and 2009, it's hardly a surprise that he played well.

    Kearney has tried to make his team run with too many shackles on and it's effected Roberts, Sandow AND Hayne. It's true the simpler things he was doing like looking for the ball definitely helped, but there's much too much expectation on him at Parra to do everything when needed, but in Origin Sticky probably told him to just run hard. It does wonders when you let volatile players like that rediscover what they love about footy.

    I only said it because he hasn't been as good as he was in 09' and never expected him to be picked for game 1. But on Wednesday night's performance I'd keep him there.

    He wasn't good before 09 origin either, he stepped up in origin, and then carried that form into the eels to take them to the grandfinal

    @pieflyguy you do bring up some very good points, playing alongside quality players having essentially no responcability did wonders for hayne.
    @matty23 yeah defs keep him there i would only bring in watmough for buhrua (sorry about the spelling)
