    1. K. Gidley (c) - Wanted to pick Mckinnon after Gidley's shocker in game three last year but need to start Gidley somewhere.

    2. D. Williams - Hopefully his return this week makes up for some of the loss of Stewart

    3. M. Jennings - Outplayed Hodges last week, NSW need dangerous attackers

    4. M. Cooper - Needed to mark hopefully Inglis

    5. C. Lawrence - Deserves a spot, stronger and faster than Boyd

    6. T. Campese - If NSW win the series it will probably be on his back

    7. M. Pearce - NSW will play direct, Pearce plays straight, Wallace plays wide, Pearce also has more variety in his kicking game.

    8. L. Bailey - The quality props NSW can pick may be the difference after making do with White and Cross last year.

    9. R. Farah - Is playing as well as Ennis and deserves his spot

    10. B. Kite - Leaving him out was Bellamy's worst mistake last year, he isnt playing as well atm but still deserves a run.

    11. B. Creagh - With Watmough, been the form backrower in the comp so far this year

    12. A. Watmough - See above

    13. P. Gallen - Everyone hates him but he carries Cronulla week in week out

    14. G. Stewart - Can play effectively as a roving lock when the game opens up

    15. J. Clinton - Contentious spot goes to the man playing in a form team

    16. L. O'Donnell - So physical, should possibly start

    17. A. Laffranchi - Becoming super reliable - consistency edges him ahead of Tupou

    QLD: - No explanations needed for most

    1. B. Slater

    2. I. Folau

    3. G. Inglis

    4. J. Hodges

    5. D. Boyd

    6. D. Lockyer

    7. J. Thurstan - Prince thrives on being the centre of a team which makes him less suited as halfback run by Smith and Lockyer

    8. S. Price

    9. C. Smith

    10. P. Civoniceva

    11. S. Thaiday

    12. D. Stagg - One of the most improved players this year

    13. D. Johnson

    14. M. Bowen - Hunt will prob get the spot but Bowen should, he lifts the pace of the game on his own

    15. B. Hannant

    16. J. Lillyman

    17. M. Luck - Deserves a go infront of Parker, one of the best for the warriors every week
