    As a one-eyed Blues supporter. Every position in the Blues played better than their toad counterpart.

    Just makes you wonder if game 1 was rigged to ensure there's some interest in game 3.

    or ...

    In most positions the cockroaches were allowed to play better than their obviously more talented QLD counterpart.

    QLD's scrum defence an obvious example.

    Just makes you wonder if game 2 was rigged to ensure there's some interest in game 3

    ^ Speaking of the Lassies ...

    Women's State of Origin match kicks off in Queensland tonight

    State of Origin 2020-12877360-3x2-xlarge-jpg

    The New South Wales Blues remain undefeated in the history of Women's State of Origin
    , but the Queensland Maroons head into tonight's first-ever match at home as firm favourites.


    Key points:

    • Women's State of Origin is decided in a single game instead of best of three like the men's competition
    • NSW has won both previous women's SOO matches but Queensland is favoured to win tonight
    • The Maroons will be captained by Ali Brigginshaw and the Blues will be captained by Kezie Apps



    Both sides have been in camp on Queensland's Sunshine Coast for two weeks in the lead up, forced to share a hotel due to the COVID restrictions.

    Question:

    I notice that KW is rooting for Queensland.

    Is that an expression of his affection for the northerners, or his dislike for NSW ?

    Thank You to the ....both of you.


    everyone dislikes the NSW folk
    Not the first time I hear that.

    Has been warned against them.

    (the good people of Queensland told me, that most folks south of the border, were criminals.
    Bit difficult for me to believe at the time, but now that you give me the heads up too......)

    Now now, Maxine

    My post above is actually true.

    I was warned against driving through NSW on my way to Perth.

    And I would be specially targeted because of the Queensland license plates.

    Aussies are weird, Max

    Woman's S of O one off game was run and won by the Maroons.

    Back to the serious stuff

    Queensland rings the changes for State of Origin Game III at unrestricted Lang Park, Blues name unchanged 17

    State of Origin 2020-12511546-16x9-xlarge-jpg

    Harry Grant's breakout 2020 season will end in a State of Origin debut as Queensland take a much-changed team into next week's series decider against NSW.


    Key points:

    • Queensland names Cameron Munster at 6 for State of Origin Game III, Christian Welch returns
    • NSW makes no changes to its matchday 17, with three changes on the reserves
    • Queensland Government eases restrictions on attendees at Lang Park, meaning 52,500 could be in attendance

    Watched it, really enjoyed it too, those girls put everything into it and there's some surprisingly good-lookers in among them Great ball skills, I really hope male Union players were watching that and taking notes on how to catch/pass a ball.

    • Ben Fucking Hunt finally ejected from the QLD team, the most useless cvnt ever to pull a maroon jersey on by far.
    FTFY.

    The Women Cane Toads should just come back out next Wednesday. They were better than the men's team.

    ^Agree totally. But, the women's team didn't have Ben Fucking Hunt play 77 minutes in their side yesterday.

    There is a bit of a controversy over here. Wayne Bennett is furious, because the 'integrity' of their team doctor has been questioned. H'mmmm.
