Actually, when you think about it - It will be interesting to see who gets picked for NSW.

You would think the positions pretty much locked down would be:

1.
2. To,o
3. Turbo
4. Latrell
5.
6.
7. Cleary
8. Haas
9. Api
10. Reagan CG
11. Liam Martin
12.
13. Murray

14.
15. Yeo
16.
17.
18.

Not sure who else would be walk up started. You would think Crichton but I don't think you would put him in the wing.

The Manly and South second rowers will prob be there about.

Prob Luai goes back in at 6?

I don't really want any Sharks to miss NRL games but Hynes has to be in with a shout for 6, nobody really standing up for it currently, McInnes in with a shout and if Williams keeps up his form off the bench he could be too.

I would love Williams / Cam to get a run (not sure if you could have both).

Do you really think Hynes is up for it?

Wouldn't mind seeing Zac Lomax on the other wing. Though I would also like to see Madge say to him:

"So Zac, I was going to pick you on the wing but since you had a big sook over it forget it!"

I agree but who else? Moses injured, that probably leaves Cody Walker or Hynes (I don't think he's ready to be honest).
How long is Moses out for though?
Others have been afforded the opportunity to come right back in (or only 1 game back under their belt).
Is he out for an extended time or due back before Origin?

I think they said around round 12 - so he will get one game in before selection

Nah wouldn't see both playing - especially with Murray/Yeo shoe ins
Makes it hard to pick McInnes, I'd almost say Williams more suited as he is a bit bigger and won't matter as much if he is on a prop.

Is Hynes up for it? If he can't play a SOO game we won't win a grand final. He's up for it if used properly.

Hynes is a 7
How many times does this need to be said???
😂😂😂😂
Hynes is a half. He is our 7, but he can play 6 at rep level.
(I know you're joking)

Yeah that'd be good

I guess it depends on how he goes in that game and if Madge wants to stick with him as the incumbent (still think he is a better option than Luai IMO).

Interesting that you would pick (losely) Williams over Cam.

What Cam lacks in size he makes up for in grit and determination (and that smile).

But I get what you mean.
Williams might be a bit more versatile (in regards to forward options) where Cam could go to dummy half but probably not prop.

How about Hynes plays 6 in SOO, absolutely kills it and makes it easy for Fitz to swap him and Tricky around!

Yeah not much in it but it's really a bench impact forward role that'd come on for a prop not the lock those extra 5+ kilos could go a long way.
Not much in it and it'd be very harsh on Cam. Cam slight more versatility towards covering 9 could be an argument for him to edge in depending on bench.

Up to Tricky as much if not more than Hynes.

If NSW play Hynes at 7 they are cooked. The 7 is a game manager and a good short and long kicker of the ball.

On the flip side there is no 6 as good as Hynes for NSW

It should be Cleary at 7 and Hynes at 6.. that would be killer and it will also put Hynes in a spot where he’s forced to not having to be the go to guy

If Moses was fit I'd have put him at 6 with Cleary as he was paying awesome prior to his injury ( matured these last 12 months )
I really don't think Nicho's up to it just yet , needs to prove his game management consistently and show his wares throughout a finals series , ( I feel ).
In order of availability of who might get the nod , I reckon

Jarome Luai
Luke Brooks
Nicho
Cody Walker ( crap so far this year , but could connect with Mitchell and other Bunny's )
