Wighton has never played in the 6 jersey at Origin level. Either he plays off the bench or doesn't play I would have thought. Should be either Luai or Walker. As a QLD supporter, please pick Wighton there. Also reading that article, why would you potentially break up the combo of Tedesco and Cook, which has been great for you guys the last couple of years?Freddy is a genuinely terrible coach if this is true
Not as unbelievable as this. Tedesco off the bench?Sounds unbelievable! It's not like Wighton is in scintillating form; he's been deeply ordinary all season. On the other hand, you have the best halves partnership in the comp, both eligible...
What am I missing here?
Yep, he won't be able to play for the KiwisAucklander>
So does Walsh choosing to play Origin for QLD (or anyone, presumably) preclude him from playing for the Kiwis, as the link seems to imply? Is this the rule, and has it been followed in the past?
Still should have picked a centre, one of the Penrith ones. Mitchell in defence is an issue. It’s why he’s a better fullbackAlso the 1-8 selection for the Blues are really good. Tommy and Latrell can play the centres much better than Wighton and Gutherson (In my opinion) and the club connection for the 6 and 7 (extending to wings a bit as well).
If my Maroons are as injured as it seems (no Munster etc) weve got a big uphill battle.
