provided they are both fit and available Gallen and Lewis will be both in the blues team.
Carney more than likely to be as well.
fifita is probually a very good chance of atleast a bench spot.
i also think that gordan is a big chance, more likely as a winger than fullback.
as i think the blues selectors will pick Hayne at fullback, but i think they pick
Gordan on the wing as the qld backs are so big and his defence is so much
better than merritts.
i also rate graham a chance as well.
as much as i like to see our players picked in rep teams, i would like to see most
of them to miss selection. because sharks doing well is more important to me
than the blues winning.
this could be a real horror period for us with atleast two players unavailable because
of origin and up to six possibly missing.

Don't forget we have the bye before both Origin 1 & 2 so will only lose players for the third one when we play the Broncos. Only way it can hurt us is if they get injured during Origin which is a distinct possibility, so fingers crossed.

I don't think Graham will be selected, he hasn't been anywhere near as good as last season.

Carney Gal and Lewy are all definites IMO. Todd may miss out, maloney would get the call up. If that happens I dont particularly mind.

Gordon is a maybe. he is probably the form fullback of the comp (nsw wise) who is fit. But Hayne will probably still get picked in that position anyway. Again, i have no real issue with that.

I think we need to rest Gal the game after origin each time, purely for preservation. It ****n smashed him last year. Lets not have that again.

With Lewis and Fifita (and Gibbs coming back) offering plenty of go forward, and 2 wins without him also shows we don't 'need' him to win, he is better off coming off origin fresh, than backing up 4 days later and weakening himself

Lewis and Gallen certainties.

Fifita , Gordon and Graham are outside chances . Not without a chance.

Graham wont come close this year IMO. Its hard because most teams have plenty of quality in the back row.

Fifita also, he is the form prop right now for sure. Going really well.

Would hate to see us have 5 out for origin and backing up each game though. But great boost for the Sharks credentials in sponsorships etc to be boasting 5 origin players. Thats melbourne storm type ****

I think we'll have Gal, Lewis, Todd & Fifita in there, more likely Flash as well, Wade is a long chance, there would have to be a few backrower injuries for him to get a call up, his time & chance will come.

Gal,Lewis and maybe fafita for mine. Carney needs several massive (matchwinning)games prior imho to make it, so good for us either way if he does/doesnt.

Gallen 100%

Carney 80% was last years #6 and has started playing well. But Sutton has been the best 5/8th this season and Maloney has been playing great with Mitch and Jennings.

Lewis 80% has a pretty good chance but i wouldnt blame them if he isnt picked.

Gordon 40% only if someone else gets injured

Fifita 10% I want him there but it wont happen, Woods will get his spot.

Graham 1% chance, if there is a epidemic of NSW injury's he might get a look in.

Lewis is 100%, no doubt about that.

Pretty spot on. I think Carney will get picked on his name alone but I wouldn't argue if he didn't get the spot.
Sutton would be a good fit, the amount of patients he showed in his game against the cowboys showed he wouldn't be out of place.
He looks to be playing what is in front of him. I saw a few times he went to kick then pass then kick. All just waiting for the defence to make a move so he could act accordingly.

Graham and Gordon won't get picked. Hayne will play FB
