 While the Blews across the hall are pontificating and doing complex calculus equations to come up with their SOO magic bullet, here's the side - give or take a player or two - that'll friggin the prom queen on July 4

1.  Billy Slater 
2.  Brent Tate (or Dane Neilsen )
3.  Greg Inglis 
4.  Justin Hodges
5.  Darius Boyd 
6.  Jonathan Thurston 
7.  Cooper Cronk
8.  Matt Scott
9.  Cameron Smith 
10. Petero Civoniceva 
11. Nate Myles
12. Sam Thaiday
13. Ashley Harrison 

14. Hannant
15. Gillett
16. Shillington  
17. Taylor  

a pretty forward-heavy bench but a few guys in the starting 13 can cover various positions if need be as can Gillett. I think DCE, Barba, Bowen might not really be needed.

i would put Justin O'Neil on the wing....boy he can jump and run....

Barba would be lethal in the final 15 mins when the game really opens up

agree on both points but QLD / Mal will be loathe to make changes to last year's side based on club form. Guys who've done the job for QLD in the past will get the nod no matter how below par their NRL form may be. 

Justin O'Neil is one for the future 

Barba or Bowen would be great to bring on to test out the tiring big guys but that 'niche' role is probably going to be superseded by the need for another backrower / frontrower who will DEFINITELY be required to play a role.

The only thing we have going for us (NSW) is that our state is in the 21st century

Thought the title of the thread should be

A short hop jump and a skip to 7 in a row.
