    Wasn't Stuart waxing lyrical about having to play players in their natural positions last year?
    i don't even watch nrl that much anymore but even i know it's a no-brainer to play Carney at 5/8, Hayne on one wing (or at full back), Uate on the other and never ever pick morris again.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    Nah Morris is probably better on the wing than Hayne.

    Rings a bell, tbh. Wasn't it his rationale for leaving Hayne out of the first game last year?

    Also, the Anzac test & County/City getting their own weekend is new, isn't it? IIRC they were usually played on the Friday of a normal weekend's fixtures.

    it's Morris. it's best to assume he's a massive front-runner until proven otherwise. remember like the last 2 series?

    both morrissesss have been going well. Hayne wouldn't be picked for me. Sill recon Soward has the best general play kicking game in the league, and would have Wallace at 7 not that useless traitor **** of a junior pearce.

    Hayne with a fantastic pass on to the chest of Ferguson for a try today. Natural 5/8.

    nah **** learn from mistakes ffs. Hayne has pretty much never let NSW down. Morris has.

    Then again if the other 12 NSW players on the field are firing than Morris is a swell player to have.

    Nah the 6 has to be Carney. If we're going to go with a guy like Pearce at 7 (solid but unspectacular) we need someone with a bit of spark at 5/8 and Sowards not that sort of player. Actually think Wallace would be the next best option for the 7 but he was never going to get a CC spot ahead of Pearce (he's a city boy). Wouldn't have minded seeing Wallace given a go at 6 ahead of Hayne, he played there for Penrith and he's in gun form, but I don't think he would be the kind of 6 NSW needs either.

    As for Morris if Hayne plays FB I'm not sure if we have any better options for the second wing spot. Gordon is injured, even if you rate Merrit he's been injured all year, Ferguson is rocks/diamonds, McManus and Williams are good club level players but not quite Origin material, Turner is just lol. It becomes a bit easier if Dugan or Stewart plays FB and Hayne goes to the wing. Get the feeling Hayne may have played himself out of a blue jersey though.

    I agree with all of that, but what I'm saying is I wouldn't have Pearce at 7. Wallace & Soward would be my combo. Carney at 6 I could live with, but I just think Soward's positional kicking is second to none, and his defence is up to it. Wallace is leading around the donkeys like I thought wouldn't be able to.

    Wallace isn't a vastly different type of player to Pearce though. Both are great organisers and defenders, Wallace probably has a bit better kicking game while Pearce has a bit better running game and is probably a bit stronger mentally (though I have no idea what I base that off). Wallace has probably been in better form this year (I agree, I thought he'd struggle without Lockyer but years of watching the man appear to have rubbed off on him) but he's playing in a vastly superior team too. Either way I'd prefer Carney paired with them.

    Wallace is a solid club footballer and nothing more. Not up to rep stuff.

    Leave Hayne out if you want. As a Parramatta fan I'd be quite happy. I'm pretty sure most Queensland fans would be too. FMD the bloke has been NSW best player when he's been stuck on the wing ffs. How hard is it to work out you pick the blokes you know can perform at that level, and always do? It's why blokes like Dallas Johnson and Ashley Harrison get picked for Qld no matter how their club sides are going. Because Qld are smart enough to know they'll do the job.

    Morris in the side ahead of Hayne? Qld laughing all the way to seven in a row.

    I didn't say I'd leave him out tbh. I just get the feeling it will happen. Playing him at 6 was just absurd, and Sticky has already said that's where he sees him playing, so if Carney is the better 6 (and he is)...

    It'll come down to whether he's fit for me. If he's anywhere remotely near his best he'll be light years ahead of Morris even if they do pick Dugan or Stewart at FB. I've only watched a couple of his games this year though and he hasn't looked 100%.
