State Of Origin


Recommended Posts

Superb game, superb entertainment, a well deserved win to Queensland.  Kalyn Ponga, a kiwi at heart, and a coming superstar, the most elusive running back in the game, even ahead of Tedesco and Latrell Mitchell.

Note after the game, a very sad sack and bitter Andrew Johns, so bad, they chose to quickly cut away from that particular comments team, when he started commenting that some comments were bullshit.

Meat balls galore

Terrific match ! The best in years. The energy levels displayed by some of the fittest players in the game were mind-boggling. Back the Maroons. Knew the crowd would lift them across the line. That Ben Hunt is a cunning little dragon isn't he ?

Not sure what commentary you guys get in NZ but if it's the same tired weak shit we get here then pity you. These State of Origin commentators are leagues below the regular NRL crew

Playing at Suncorp Stadium Brisbane, the New South Wales Blues will go head-to-head with the Queensland Maroons for the 2022 State of Origin title.

Big names among the ex-players but media savvy they are not with the exception perhaps of Gallen but he was sideline. Lockyer's a former client and a good bloke but most were stating the bleedin' obvious.

You wouldn't want Sam Thaiday's fingers anywhere near ya 😁
