One of the biggest stories in the lead up to Origin was the omission of Billy Slater.
Arguably one of the best to ever pull on the #1 jersey, choosing Darius Boyd over Slater was a controversial choice (just look at how passionate Bob Katter was about it all).
After QLD were humbled by a rampant NSW side on Wednesday night, talk has already started up that Slater should be included in Origin II.
And as though to bolster this argument, Slater has put on an impressive first half in Melbourne's clash with the Knights, racking up two try assists early in the piece.

Slater then scored a brilliant individual try that even 10+ looks from the bunker couldn't take away from him.
"He'll be the headline in the paper tomorrow.Slater with a bit of individual brilliance," Triple M's Dan Ginnane said.
"It was his leadership after half time that got the Storm back on track. A crucial try at a crucial moment for Billy Slater. It was his energy that did it," Triple M's Ryan Girdler said.
