Side note, If I were picking NSW I would pick El Masri and would of long before now. Almost a certain 6 points everytime a try is scored and any penalty kicks. Sometimes kicking in close matches can be the difference and we know how often origin games have been close over the years. Solid enough in the rest of his game.

It was based on a foxsports article I read about him saying in an interview that he wants to get at least his average season match stats this season, including 36 tackles to push for NSW selection

Titans fullback Preston Campbell will miss monday's game against the Cowboys due to a knee injury he suffered in last night's City / Country clash .. Extent of the injury not confirmed just yet .. will be later today when he sees club doctors .. Early thought is posterior cruciate or ACL damage ..

He is out of monday's game though - replaced by Great Britain international Richie Mathers ... don't know if the books are onto this yet ..

I agree however given Head is back, his role really is to act as the go between, not really to kick or throw the miracle pass.

Head's return gives me more confidence with the Dragons, they have looked completely clueless in attack with no direction over the past month. When he played against the Sharks in that Monday night game where they got belted he was not even 100% fit, should never have played that night

Thats good to hear Dave. Being a broncos fan I was getting a little worried even though we were only 2 points out of the 8. Would be great if this is benny's last year if he could go out on a winner. Although he has more than proved himself already.

^ A low error count is fine - I remember the Cowboys had the best completion rate of any side in season 2000, yet where did they finish ...?

Neither side in last night's Broncos - Souths game threw anything other than aimless 'one out' attack at their opposition for 90% of the game ... Both teams played in this manner and as such made each other look very good defensively ..

Side with Cowboys too ... One concern though is the extra motivation the guys have generated from this Jason Smith issue ... The fact they're actually openly mentioning it in the media shows how deep it runs ...

But the disruption of losing Preston Campbell could hurt the hosts ... While Richie Mathers is an international, he's had some errors in his game with Burleigh in the Q cup and could be exposed tonight ... It's certainly a given that he'll be targetted by the Cowboys ...

My initial pick is the Titans too, they've only lost once at home thus far but I'm worried about the loss of Preston. Cowboys can be hit or miss and always seem to invite the opposition back into the game when they get a lead.

true, but if theres anyone who deserves a bench spot its bowen, who has been performing consistently good over the pass 8 rounds. its obvious selectors will not pick him at fullback, khunt has that locked with a good performance during the anzac match.even tho hes been poor in club matches. selectors will always go with incumbents

Titans really need some bigger bodies in their forward pack ... At ground level tonight the Cowboys' advantage in terms of their go-forward was evident ... Thurston had a fantastic match but just seemed to have that half a second longer than Prince to execute .. again on the back of his forwards ...

It's been said before but maroons selectors are morons if they don't find a spot for Matt Bowen ...
