    N.S.W. seal State of Origin Defence

    I know this may be jumping the gun a bit, but the heart and sould of Queensland's State of Origin forward pack, the best forward currently playing the game, and a general good bloke Shane Webke has decided to retire from representative footy (the proper code).

    I caused a love-in on the bus on the way home from University this afternoon when someone asked me why I was crying, I said "Shane Webke has retired from representative football." The bloke next to me burst into tears, and we were all reminising on a great man and a great career, even some ******* blue up the back had no bad words to say which is unusual, although with the Maroon passion steaming on the bus, the bus driver kicked him out next stop, and he was wearing a Cowboys' hat!

    Let's just hope that Steven Price isn't injured, and that the selectors don't select that loser Ross to play!

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Very sad, he was a fine player with great passion and determination. You'd want him in any side and the way he lifts for Origin will really be missed! Civineciva will really have to step up now and hopefully the Coyboys forwards can get a look in for origin now.

    last year i would have been running for the hills with this news, but i think we can cope...

    8 Petero Civoniceva
    9 Cameron Smith
    10 Steve Price
    11 Brad Thorn
    12 Steve Southern
    13 Jason Smith
    The Rest
    David Stagg, Carl Webb, Tonie Carroll, Shane Tronc, Michael Crocker, Chris Flannery, Dane Carlaw (lol).

    I think theres a very good foward pack in there whichever way we go...

    Your making it sound like he has retired from rugby league as immediate or had dropped dead.

    Yes though, it is a big loss for QLD, but at least we have plenty of time on our hands to find a replacement.

    But Marsh was the number 9 before he got injured and it was only then that Smith got his chance.. Marsh should be somewhere in the mix IMO if he continues his great form and regains up to a satisfactory fitness level

    no, cause he wont start at half cause theres prince and seymour, he wont start at hooker cause theres smith, marsh and berrigan, and he wont be on the bench cause bowen will be and there will be 3 fowards on the bench with him...

    smith has proven himself a better player, he should also be the australian hooker for the anzac test...
    we may also need his goalkicking in origin...

    His goal kicking isn't anything special

    God, I hope Bowen isn't picked, he drops the ball more than Wesser, and that is a tough ask.

    We won't need his goalkicking because Shifcofske will finally get picked. I'm sick of all this talk of Hunt, Bowen & Wesser, we need solidarity at the back and Shifcofske is in great form once again. He deserves his chance, yet again.

    Locker should play fullback IMO with Slater and Bowen on the wings.

    Tait and Hodges in the centres and Seymor, Prince in the halves
