    I don’t recall saying or thinking that Mo was motivated by money in his decision. I used the word “they” so that it was in terms of the general rules and not Mo specific. Mo is actually my favourite Titan.

    If I’m going to have a crack at someone I will individualise.
    I’m saying I’d take choice out of it so that Origin $$$$ which is huge money is never a factor. This is nothing to do with NSW/QLD this is about how fair dinkum or not the sport is about having a credible international game.

    Finally I’d like a process so that the criteria whittles everyone down to having one country they are eligible to play for.

    Thanks. I was only thinking of our current list when you said that. I’ll give myself an uppercut.

    Christ we could have 5 or 6 guys playing origin starting next season, Fifita, Tino, Moe, Brimson, BK?, JWall?, Sami???

    Disappointed about Moe not lining up for the Kiwis but he should walk into a QLD jumper this year and spend 10+ years there, and SoO has always been the biggest stage in Rugby League bar a Grand Final appearance so it's understandable.

    I'm selfish in that I hope none of our blokes play Origin. I know they come back better players but they also come back stuffed and many suffer huge let downs for a few weeks due to the Origin intensity. You are also almost guaranteed losses while your Origin blokes are away.
    Selfish I know, but give me finals appearances by the Titans rather than Origin reps. If Origin was after the comp like this year or the comp was stopped for Origin I would change my views but I hate the way Origin ruins the NRL while it is on.

    I’m with you 100%. I want to see a Gold Coast Premiership before I die and nothing else in Rugby League matters to me.
    SOO is a hindrance to that if we have more than a couple playing.

    If itís not mid-season Origin loses its appeal in my opinion. I was at that first game so itís entrenched in my mindset. Having said that and having had our share of flogging the NSWailers Iím willing to sacrifice State for Club. Iím with Bodsie; just once before I die.

    So big Mo hasn't actually chosen yet from what I can tell after reading your posts?

    He may well go with NZ for all we know.

    tl;dr: Mo picks Maroons over NZ

    So Mo hasn't played for New Zealand or England but played in QLD he gets to choose. If he chooses NZ he can't play origin.

    JT2 (Lolo Cowboys) played for Tonga so he would be eligible but apparently he resided in QLD when he was 14 not 13 so ineligible.

    Wasn't Mo more interested in playing for Tonga then NZ?
    But I say he is a QLDER anyway just like a few other players in the past
    I for 1 will be cheering him on in the QLD jersey as well as Tino and AJ
    Arrow will be there as well all the best at south to you are a champ always gave it your all here

    Yep JaF ... nobody can question Arrow’s professionalism just his sanity ... his choice of barber says it all.

    I’ll always be very disappointed in Arrow for the lead up to his signing with Souffs and just in general cutting and running on us.
    Was a huge let down.

    We will never know the full reason he decided to leave.. I just think it’s a shame, he seems so passionate about the club and the Gold Coast, he would of been a great captain.. but life goes on, we have some good players coming so can’t complain too much
