Stop laughing at the back.
With a day's worth of objectivism in place it's much easier for me to analyse the game, and I've come to the following conclusions.
1. Jason King. With a massive 4 hit-ups and 25 metres he must start game 2. Not really. I can't actually remember a worse origin performance than his. Tolman or Galloway in for round 2.
2. Michael Jennings. Made a couple of errors but looked very dangerous with the ball -deserves to keep his spot.
3. Brett Morris, Mark Gasnier, Dean Young, Trent Merrin. All of these guys play their club footy for St George -the club I support- none of them should be picked for game 2. Hayne, Idris, Lewis and Learoyd-Lahrs as their replacements seems to make sense to me.
And yet, despite some poor performances, we were winning with 10 minutes to go.
6 in a row? Not quite time to celebrate yet.
PS. If anyone is going to get pissy about my Queenslander stereotype, be aware that I love all of god's creations. Even the ones in cowboy hats.
