I can't imagine him staying, unless our offer is super-competitive, or out of loyalty to team/coach. He was good sticking out his contract, but I reckon his mum and his family would be telling him to treat us the same way we treated John Morris.
cant see that happening, id say we know wide running second rowers of his calibre and potential are few and far between these days

we'll pay him to stay

Teig is a good player, but not a pay overs player.

If he leaves, Talakai takes his spot, we get a specialist centre.
We have players who can play centre (Iro, Tracey, Ikuvalu, Atkinson, Hiroti, Mulitalo).
A player to fight Talakai for the edge jersey is what I’d say we need (if they win have option to leave him at centre too)

Teig is at that sweet spot where he isn't quite Origin level yet but is just that tier slightly below. Just looking at who played left edge last week, the only ahead in class would be Kikau and Papali'i imho.

I love Teig but he's not ready for SOO yet imo.....round two and they're talking about ****ing SOO already.

The only person liking this will be @Born&bred
I haven't really thought about this but there'd have to be half a dozen NSW backrowers who would be walk up starts before his name would be considered, surely

Just thinking out who could be there non side specific:

Murray
Martin
Olakauatu?
Koloamatangi?
Lane
Wilton

Given how freddy doesn't usually shy away from picking guys out of position, i'd think Murray and Martin start. Are Ola or Koala eligible? Otherwise Lane is the only one I could see getting in the way, and that is only if he can return to his end of season form quickly after this injury. He's way closer than I had considered.

Hudson Young another

I think Freddie would have a good hard look at all of them for a left edge spot before Wilton if he was picking an Origin team tomorrow. (Well, okay, not Lane, but he does beat him for the jersey currently if healthy).
Pretty sure Martin has played left when Kikau off.

Think both Ola and Koloa are eligible as haven't played for first teir internationals.
Think Ola opted himself out last year to concentrate on Internationals

For some reason I thought Young was a pom. I guess it's just the factor of being a second rower playing for Canberra.
Young is also a right edge player, but I agree, I think Freddy would look at all of them before Teig at this stage. He generally finds players he likes and finds a spot for them somewhere. Rather than being position/side specific.

Murray could play anywhere on the field and be outstanding ..

You could play Yeo at 13, Martin left and Murray right and put a Young or Ola on the bench to throw on either side for a bit.
That's if Lane wasn't available as a very competent left edge starter.

Kind of weird how many NSW eligible edges are right side players at club level though...
