I don't know if there are personal reasons they don't want him in the side but I wouldn't mind seeing Ferguson given a go. Huge unit and the ability to carve teams up. Bit of a dickhead but you could say that about a fair few other players (score me some dreamteam points already you **** Bird).
Halves are always going to be a point of contention. I don't think A Reynolds is ready yet, so I can understand the Pearce selection. I'd stick with Carney personally, but having a halves combo that plays together at club level probably outweighs Carney's experience from last year. Always felt that defense was Maloney's problem but he seems to be turning the corner there.
Feel for Grant, but taking my Penrith glasses off, he probably doesn't deserve a spot. Just happy ol runaway finally seems to be out of the team.
Wait wait wait wait wait..... we're talking about Hayne and you claim that Merritt is overrated? Gotta be a joke...
Hayne gets overhyped on the back of his 09 form but outside of the media circus I find fans tend to underrate him if anything. A big part of that is the fact that he's a tool, an unfulfilled talent and the aforementioned media hype, but he's still a very good player, just not the world beating superstar he could and probably should be.
that's when hes playing for Parra though, he's a different story in origin.
agree that Merritt is overrated, no doubt he's an exceptional support player but otherwise hes puss.
and anyone whose watched Todd Carney play the last 2 weeks will have seen why he has to be the 6, best 6 in nsw by far.
1. B. Stewart
4. J. Morris
5. B. Morris
11. G. Stewart
no need for kidley, Farah is an 80 min player and Lewis and Bird can cover the backs if there is injuries
I don't think the club relationship of Pearce and Moloney is a good point, if anything it brings Carney into favour even more. Pearce and Carney nearly won a premiership together and have played with each other more times than Pearce and Moloney.
It's a tough choice, but I'd pick Moloney. Having watched every game he's played this year I'm not sure any player is playing better than him right now.
Parra lack go forward because their forwards are absolute dross and their hooker is even worse.
Also I don't think G Stewart is really in the frame. Hasn't played much this year and we have too many good backrowers to carry someone not in form.
I'm liking Blake Ferguson as a smoky. Raiders kept the right man there I think. He sounds like his a bit of a dick head but can be reformed. Dugan is just a turd. Well rid of the bell whiff.
- Kidley will play.
- No one from NSW is playing better than Maloney - Inglis is the form player of the comp IMO.
- I don't think the Parra forwards are all that bad overall, They get the team into decent positions on the field but agree they lack creativity out of dummy half and the ball handling is below average
- Can't see a spot for Ferguson. He'd be a decent option in a NSW A team.
