  1. Should of done it yrs ago he’s been busted for the last two or three yrs
    He’s pace is long gone

  2. His last decent game was origin in 2014 when he did his knee. should’ve done it years ago

  3. Has been great in the past for the Blues. Did himself and state proud.

    But should not have been in the team this year. Hopefully next year him, Fergo, Hayne, Woods, Pearce, Maloney etc are gone. Cant keep picking guys because they’ve done the (losing) job before. Have NSW learnt nothing from the Farah situation…?

  4. Trbojevic and Mansour in Morris and Ferguson out. Although I have a feeling Tom will be playing fullback if Tedesco has another poor game for NSW.

  5. has been good for the blues. i dont think he got enough ball this series to really show anything.

  6. Brett in his prime was the best RL winger in the world. Unfortunately, he is now only a shadow of his former self and – like a number of others – should never have been given the call up for SOO 2017.
    Looks like his dream of winning a comp. with twin brother Josh will also come to nothing.
    Nice bloke with a career to be proud of.
