State of Origin III


The third and deciding game of the State of Origon series kicks off tonight and it has all the makings of a classic. The Blues coach (who every QLD’er loves to hate) is stepping down after the series (although he’s said that before too) and one of their key players who made a comeback for this series wants to go out on a winning note.

Queensland, for their part, have never won at Telstra stadium in 9 attempts. They have a pretty stable team set-up and they’re coming off the back of a great win in Brisbane 3 weeks ago.

Whatever happens, it should be a cracking game of footy. Got the chips and beer and the pizza’s in the oven – Let the war begin!

State of Origin III


Final game of the State of Origin rugby league series between Queensland and New South Wales kicks off tonight. The game doesn’t matter except for pride as NSW has wrapped things up 2-0 already.

Be my first game of league I’ve watched in a few years and I’ve always enjoyed the fiery encounters between the Cane Toads and the Cockroaches. History shows best how closely contested this annual series is, with nothing separating the teams. Going into tonight’s game, here are the stats:

Games: NSW 33 QLD 33 drawn 2
Series: NSW 10 QLD 10 drawn 2
