Inglis?

Boyd?

Barba?

How good is Inglis playing right now? Probably better than back in the Storm days

If it were up to me, I'd have Inglis in there with Boyd on the outside. Dude's form right now is better than Billy...

Don't follow league players as closely as union....is Matty Bowen a contender?

will be an interesting dilemma for Mal and co. 

do you weaken a strength (ie shifting GI from the left edge) to strengthen a weakness ? Or gamble on a straight replacement ? 

Personally I think QLD might need to throw something a little different at NSW in game three. So GI to fullback could be the play. 

But then again Matty Bowen or Ben Barba at the back could also deliver some of the zip QLD has been missing thus far.

On a side note, David Taylor needs to deliver BIG TIME in game three. His MIA performance last wednesday belongs on the all time origin garbage list of shockers. If he wants ever wants to play for Queensland again after this series, he needs to man up and make a big contribution. 

IMO Queensland needs to sacrifice some size on the bench for a bit more mobility in the forwards.

Origin is about saving tries and not scoring.

Barba constantly gets thrown back into the in goal when trying to get out. He's too small for origin.

Disagree. What he lacks in size he makes up for big time in speed, agility and a low centre of gravity, actually one of the tougher guys to trap in goal IMO.

If Slater doesn't play then you have to go with GI but Slater will play for sure
Barba is Bowen 10 years ago

No denying Barba has been super impressive for the Dogs.
But personally I wouldn't throw him as an origin virgin into a massive pressure cooker game like that. If he were to have a shocker it would largely be b/c of a mental issue. Hard to recall too many players having a great game on debut in such a pressure cooker game in any sport.

Inglis moved to fullback and Nielsen goes to centre
