Fielden has not been good enough this year. As for Willy Mason - I hope he gets picked, he should give lots of penalties awa. Although he's obviously difficult to spot if the punishment for his off-the-ball, late, cowardly hit on Sean Long was anything to go by.

Fielden hasn't been the same player since Willie Mason knocked him out when we the Kangaroos over over at Aussie Stadium.

If Smith were to choose a squad with 5 or even 6 points I still wouldn't take Fielden.

Our forwards are not a problem anyway.

Our problem is the fact that Folau and Inglis will make players like Keith Senior look as average as they undoubtedly are.

Lee smith won't shit it. In my eyes he should be playing full bck before wellens. Peacock will have mason in his back pocket. griffin should of been in the squad since hes been one of the best props all year
