    Has to be the weakest origin pack in some time. Hard to find a forward outside of arrow whose in any type of form

    I think they'll pick Edrick at 5 if he's healthy, Hunt at 14, and Kaufusi over Hess/Gillett/Cooper. It's not a strong pack on current form, however I never discount QLD (I'm a NSW fan). They'll lift for Origin, and a lot of them play regularly together at club level, which has always been an advantage for them.

    That Warriors game will be tough for us without Klemmer & Ponga plus possibly Ramien & Glasby, I don't think Eddy will get picked especially now he's injured, whilst Pearce isn't getting picked either unless Cleary breaks a leg.

    I said it in the off season and I still feel the same, we don't have a decent back-up fullback, I'd say Watson or Mann will play there with other at 5/8 which doesn't fill me with much confidence.

    18 milford whom could take and bench spot to cover the spine.

    I think this is pretty close, although I don't think they'll carry four forwards on the bench especially with Hunt starting at 9, I think they'll actually have Hunt on the bench and probably play Jake Granville. I also think they're making a mistake starting Morgan in the centres, it worked once when we were blown off the park, I'm not convinced it will work again for them.
