The named S00 3 squad is a joke and Fittler is off with the fairies and has given all fans a big up yours!!!

He has left Tedesco and Addo Carr in the team yet dropped Luai

Brought in Cody Walker whose best days are behind him

Burton is in the squad with Carr and they got lapped by 66 points on the weekend.

and Yeo to the bench with Murray to start…god give me strength

All the Panther players should withdraw.

The only way the chosen side will beat QLD is if QLD miss their flight to Sydney.


100% agreed. The other issue is that Greg Alexander is part of the selection team (I think).

What concerns me is Liam Martin will become a 1 man wrecking machine…unfortunately I fear he will wreck himself in doing so


I would have preferred if none of our players were selected for a dead rubber. We have more important games coming up.


It’s funny, talk to any player and the Premiership is the greatest achievement, the NRL however NEED their cash cow that is SOO.

One way for us fans to fix it…don’t watch !!

SBF covered this well, but what also astounds me is how Fittler can pick a flogged horse like Gutho.

Poor Edwards must be questioning how he could possibly do any more….

Not to mention Spencer.

Bradman Best - great name and sure the kid has some talent, but one game surely doesn’t make up for a session of misery. The guy plays in a team with no structure, no culture etc and Fittler thinks he can turn that around in a week?

The only selection change that makes sense for me is Jake.

Kinda makes me want to go for the maroons just to rub it in.

I’d rather Yeo be released to play for Penrith than warm the bench and come on as a prop
