I know that Will is playing pretty tough this season but I'd still be worried that Origin would break him.

I don't think paps will be back and if he does play again, he won't be the same player. When the injury happened, I read something like no sportsman has ever came back from this injury. His kneecap was shattered into like 7 pieces.

I would love to see it as I love watching him play but I just don't think it will happen. Happy to be proven wrong.

I think I read recently that Melbourne are planning as if Nick Meaney is their long term fullback.
It's a tough injury to overcome simply because of it's position , it will be interesting , such a shame if he doesn't as whilst no Storm fan he was great to watch at his best .

Everyone is forgetting paps, and if he is not injured he would be next best.
I honestly think Papps will struggle to get back to playing NRL let alone Origin.

That was some nasty knee injury.
They would have been better replacing the knee cap altogether (although I’m not sure if they did that or tried to repair it).

Was about to write the same thing. I don't see him getting anywhere near where he was unfortunately. Shame cause when he found that form he was such a pleasure to watch.

Go back and read where we got to paps. Not off topic...
We are talking about wills competition at Nsw fullback
I don't need to go back, I know how it started. But it's been all about the bad haircut ever since.

Let’s not pretend talking about Paps is worse convo then complaining about talking about Paps. Why do you add something constructive about Will?
complaining about complaining is where it’s at

It will be interesting to see if Pap's does come back, his injury was pretty bad. It would be a real shame if he can't. Last I read was he was doing better, but still had a bit of an imbalance in his strength. Time will tell I guess.

Where do we think Kennedy is in the pecking order of fullbacks in the nsw coaches eyes?

1. Teddy
2. Turbo
3. Edwards
4. Mitchell
5. Gutho
6. Kennedy

That’s my bet.
