We should take a leaf out of the Q'Billie book and pick Widdop.After nsw won in 2013 then lost again last year, selections could go either way. Do you give up on either Hodko or Pearce or both or stick with them. Do you find a spot for frizzell? Are Josh Morris and Jennings the best centres or do ferguson or James Roberts replace one or both. Does Farah bring game winning or bad losing options. (Couldn't find the right man to kick a field goal in game 1).

* Friend, Tyrrell (poor form), Lawrence (injury/age), Thompson (UK), Cooper (age), Moga (injury) & Segeyaro omissions from last years.
Not a bad side BUT you might need a rethink on a couple of spots.My picks for the blues
2. Semi (well, he has to be picked)
4. J. Morris
A win is a win and those two are back so the rorters will get better each week.But playing Newcastle.
Re Blues - I wouldn't be surprised to see either Frizell and/or Thompson in the squad.
Well, he was picked for the Kangaroos, so he should be picked in the blues side. Inglis is a Blue.Not a bad side BUT you might need a rethink on a couple of spots.
Semi Trailer as good as he is doesn't qualify under current rules for SOG.
Ennis is a perfect fit for the sharks but not SOG
Woods has an injury that may affect his selection
Tamou played well against Manly but hasn't been setting the forwards on fire and Gallen is running on old legs
As much as it irks me to say it Fifita could be a selection though.
