Doesn't bother me Gerry!! Just trying to explain to QLDlanders why NSW won't win another.

BTW, if I was worried about the code I follow I'd ask you how did the QLD Reds go against NSW this year???



Rugby League played in schools up here
Rugby Union mainly played in institutions.
Rugby Union care factor in QLD not much more than zero

Don't think there's even a thread on that although some Kiwi did start one about the World Cup or something!

All good banter

As I said, use any example you want.

Inglis also wanted to play for QLD in part because they treat indigenous players better than NSW. Both QLD and NSW have proven since day one you can use practically any excuse get a player to play for either state. Inglis and Tamou are shining examples of a flawed concept.

And the NRL have boxed themselves into a corner with it. Because no matter how you change it, everyones going to squeal 'unfair'.
bigcol Posted - 01 Aug 2015 : 20:23:56
It's ok, i'm used to it. I like the fact the player like Inglis would rather play for QLD over the state he was born in

It is boring though
Aussie James Tamou.
More recent than Inglis and from Palmerstone Nth NZ. Even played for the junior Kiwis.
So how did he qualify for NSW again
Darren351 Posted - 23 Jul 2015 : 10:03:15
Boorish or not get used to it. Use as many examples as you want. Inglis is the current poster boy for this argument and will be until the next one comes along either way...And it'll continue as long as the concept does.
bigcol Posted - 13 Jul 2015 : 09:09:15
I find this constant dribble about Inglis being from Bowraville very boorish.
It happened with Ken Nagus long before Inglis played in QLD.
Nagus was born and bred in Bundaberg QLD.
It also happened in the very first state of origin game.
Steve Rogers played his first senior rugby league with the Southport Tigers. Even won a premiership there. Yet he played for NSW.

In fact the new eligibility rules probably favour Qld now.
Darren Lockyer is a classic case. Signed as a school boy by the Bronco's. IRCC the Roosters were also chasing him very hard.
If Lockyer went to the Roosters he would have been eligible for NSW.
There were plenty of young Qlders over the years that were signed while still in high school and then played their first senior games in NSW.

Anyway Mafool will always look at the world while on her back and will always see things that are plain as day in a distorted way.
That was the first game in quite a while that every penalty given was deserved. Even the obvious milked ones were deserved because of the players involved not even attempting to get out of the way.

Mitchel Pearce had a lot to say to JT in game 2. JT's response was priceless telling Pearce he was the worst half back in origin history and the only way he'll touch an origin shield is to go outside and touch the one that Wally Lewis is holding and that he'd even take a picture of it for him.
Apart from a sledge or two at least QLD didn't humiliate them with some stupid try celebrations so NSW won't get years of motivation from it like Qld did

How good was Klemmer. Dropped the ball a couple of times as soon as he got on. Then ran around for the next 10 minutes trying to kill some one and missed each time. One hot day doesn't make a summer.
I'm sure he knows how to spell R-E-S-P-E-C-T these days.
He's just a loud mouth. I was sitting on the M1 for 3 hours due an accident on Friday night and was listening to Grandstand on the ABC. Apparently there was an ABC cameraman at the airport who was filming the Blues getting back into Sydney.
Klemmer wasn't asked any questions and the cameraman wasn't in his way. Yet good old Klemminator told this ABC guy who did absolutely nothing to him to 'get out of my ****ing way you ****'.
And in case you're wondering what the auto censor stars said it was the same thing he called Corey Parker.
Which is pretty funny because Corey Parker played a blinder against NSW and got the Wally lewis medal. Whereas all Klemmer got was a reputation for being a loud mouthed idiot and massive serve on social media

Rugby League is very strong up here.
There's grass roots programs running through the schools which help and also plenty of visits from high profile players and retired players.

You just have to look at the success of the Broncs and the Cowboys in particular to see how strong it is. Nearly every kid wants to play for them.




One contributing issue for NSW is the print media here are hopeless. Theyve been trying for too long trying to get to under the QLDlanders skin with the same ignorant and arrogant dribble every year. It has never worked....ever, yet they still persist. A number of callers to various sports shows this week leading up to origin expressed their disgust towards the 60 Minutes story and warning that all the other various media dribble would only fire QLD up. They were right.

A lot of kids in NSW want to play for QLD too!! Particularly in Bowraville!! They want to hope they go to QLD on holidays one day. It'll increase their chances!!!

The performance by NSW was embarrassing but not as embarrassing as the comments from maloodunce who makes Queensland supporters look fairly intelligent!................. Did I miss anyone????

I don't think Hayne could give a toss what Hodges and Thurston think... and here QLD are talking about respect.





That's the attitude we like.

It was great to see old J.T giving young Mitch some encouragement, i think J.T said something like 'don't worry Mitch with a bit more practice you can be an old has been like me'.

Along the lines of not bad for a bunch of ****ing old fellas, Skaifeman!

Maloo Girl, your comments are typical of a NSWelshman.
When Qld doesn't play well, they say so - they take ownership like they did after game 2 and fix their mistakes.
NSW just say WTF happened, we did everything right. Obviously they didn't because they were comprehensively thrashed last night.
They do not take any ownership at all for a sub standard performance.
A young NSW player might have a great game and the next thing he's the best thing since sliced bread.
A young Qldr might have a great game and he's told he did well but still there's a lot more to do.

It just shows that they have learned nothing from being beaten for the last number of years. Sure they fluke one occasionally, sometimes through sheer talent and playing to the absolute best of their ability but most often because Qld hasn't played up to their usual standard.

If you stop the bitching, finger pointing and what ifs you just might find that you win more often.
I personally hope not but stranger things have happened.



Huh?? Typical NSWelshman?? Fairly broad brush your using there LG..... Particularly comparing us all with MalooGirl!! Fact is most of NSW couldn't care less about rugby league these days, including SOO ....Yet the harshest critics of NSW SOO sides are NSWelshmen!!! Funny thing about SOO isn't it? It always brings out all the best of the gracious winners and losers!!! My favourite are the retreads!!

As a side note, I thought Wednesday nights result was hilarious!! Here's why....

The broader issue is the strength of the game in NSW. I don't know what the state of the game is like in QLD, but here in NSW the game has been in steady decline thanks in part to the NRL and NSWRL ignoring the grass roots of the game (particularly in regional NSW) for decades in favor of propping up the NRL. Former league strongholds like the Hunter are losing junior players to soccer and AFL in ever increasing numbers. First grade teams in some regional groups are in one season, out the next three due to low numbers and no money. Subsequently, with the lack of talent coming through the system we get substandard players/coaches/administrators who wouldn't have got a gig otherwise.

Cudo's to Qld though. Their domination will continue.

QLD fans can't understand why NSW people don't have the same passion or siege mentality as they do. There are plenty of reasons but it's also human nature not to be associated with habitual losers, and NSW have been deserved losers for a decade. Blame what you will, fact is the player depth and talent in NSW just isn't there anymore. Soccer and AFL are well organised and are promoting their codes better, thanks to the success of the A-League and the Swans. Wait till the invasion gets a stronger foothold up north...

Proof in the pudding will be when they try and sell tickets to the next NSW SOO home game. Once again they'll be giving most of them away the week before kick off to try and fill the stadium like they have done many times before...
