To’o Maroons unveils plans to repel aerial bombardment

Brian Too also announced his plans to stop the expected aerial attack from Queensland, with the unusual statement that he would ‘squeeze your glutes and hope for the best’.

Penrith Winger, who is charitably listed by the NRL at 182cm, joked that he had tackled long-winded opposition wings and had a plan for his entire career.

“For me, for a little guy, I just said this thing, ‘Hold on to your glue and hope for the best,'” he said.

“It’s just a matter of trying to compete. I will do my best. Even if you are taller than me I will try and give my best [in the air]. All these wings are taller than me. I love looking at challenges.

Daniel Tupau was overtaken by Josh Ado-Carr because of his height advantage, while Queensland was considered important because he chose Selwyn Cobo and Xavier Coates, 190 centimeters north. Despite the adversity of the heights, Toard’s strength in the yardage was a major factor in his inclusion in the team.

Brad Fitler defended his call with Tupau instead of ado-car in the NSW Blues squad, but revealed that his controversial decision caused ‘quite a stir’ among his players.

“[The decision] There has been a lot of excitement with the players, “he said Sen.Breakfast with Andrew Voss and Greg Alexander.

“[Addo-Carr] The way he is around the camp is so unique. But I really think it was more about playing Daniel Tupau – what he did on the roosters, how safe he was, the way he was finishing, the way he was getting the ball out of trouble.

“I think at the moment, I don’t think it’s right for Fox or the team to go to the first game. So we contacted and he was committed to getting back on the team and he had my line, well, he’s here. So it was a tough one. “

Alexander backed his former Penrith teammate’s decision, describing the Bulldogs winger – who allowed him to score two goals against the Dragons yesterday – as “out of form”.

Brandi explained that he thought it would be better to resist the tall man, Tupu, Queensland.

“A lot of players were picked when they were in bad form or not in great form,” Alexander said. “But they have worked before.

“Keeping in mind what Queensland will choose, we have decided to go with Daniel Tupo on the wing instead of Josh Ado-Car.

Daniel Tupu is also in great form. She did too [in Origin] Before that – he did a great job for us in 2020. I thought in 2020 he would be one of our best players.

“He’s a great carry-out in his own right. He’s tall, he’s the target of our kicks, but he can save the kicks too.”

Earlier, in his first interview about the Fitler Blues team announcement, he doubled down on his decision, with the coach saying that the only thing he thought was unusual about his choice was his reaction.

“I wonder if people will be surprised,” said the Nine News coach. “He has been the best winger for many years.

“I’ve coached Tups before on the City team and at the State of Origin and have always liked him as part of my team.”

Regarding the selection of new centers by Cotoni Stags and Stephen Crichton, Fitler said that their ability to decide on the defensive side of the ball is the main reason.

“It’s a pretty clever position and defensively it’s extremely important,” he said. “Our centers will have a lot of work to do and some big decisions to make, but at the end of the day, it’s about the team and I don’t think it will cost you a place.

“We are very confident in the team we have and look forward to meeting all the boys.”

Earlier, the Bulldogs’ captain and coach, Josh Jackson and Mick Potter, backed their man ado-car for the blues gig.

“He’s a responsible player and he’s a very good original player,” Potter said. “I would have been surprised if he had not been in the team. I’ll be disappointed for Josh, I hope it’s not.

Jackson added: “He was really good at that origin, he’s been a part of it for years now and he’s put in some great performances.

“The energy he brings around a place is quite contagious so I can imagine Brad Fitler wanting to be in his camp all week.”
