QLD beat NSW again in Game 2 and take out the series in Brisbane.

Its a familiar story with Queensland beating NSW over the past 10 years and something needs to change.

It seems increasingly obvious that player selection is critical if NSW are to win the next series.

If all players are available in 2017 the new look 20 man blues squad I would like to see take the field is:

  1. Brett Morris (debut 2010)
  2. Blake Ferguson (debut 2013)
  3. Josh Dugan (debut 2011)
  4. Josh Morris (debut 2009)
  5. James Tedesco (on debut)
  6. James Maloney (debut 2013)
  7. Luke Brooks (on debut)
  8. Aaron Woods (debut 2013)
  9. Michael Ennis (c) (debut 2009)
  10. Boyd Cordner (debut 2013)
  11. Tyson Frizell (debut 2016)
  12. Josh Jackson (debut 2015)
  13. Jack Bird (debut 2016)
  14. David Klemmer (debut 2015)
  15. Andrew Fifita (debut 2013)
  16. Bryce Cartwright (on debut)
  17. Matt Moylan (debut 2016)
