I'd say Munster might be a little annoyed at being plastered to one side of the field.

I thought the best backline movement we had was on the no try to Feldt.

Munster came around to the open and fed the ball along to Cherry who had a bit of space and got the kick cleanly in behind the line for what should've been a try.

I wasnt paying too much attention to the game, but it looked like Munster very rarely got the ball on the run... I suspect he may have been getting it a lot from second receiver and having to wait for it off the middle forward or Bhunt later in the game.

I'd say Munster would be an entirely different player if Harry was in the nine jersey
Man I mentioned it in the live game thread that Munster needed to roam. That nsw right side defence was so tight we just weren’t going anywhere down there. Paul green is a tactical dunce.

Are they serious?

He's competing for the football and Tedesco to his credit put his body on the line to get there first.

I'll pay the incident against Martin from Game I, but are they going to say anything about Cleary lashing out with the boot to Arrow or is that all sweet?

Didn't this mob try and defend Mitchell back-handing a player off the ball?

Also brushed over Kent implying the Morons should bring out the old school approach of cheap shots as well.

It strange the tactics were so bad when so called tactical guru Neil Henry was right there next to green. Something is off with the coaching staff

I dont always agree with Kenty but thought he was spot on tonight about the simplicity of the eligibility rules and why they are there. If you start letting NZers play Origin and block them from playing for the Kiwis then they cease to exist as a tier 1 team. If you let them play Origin and for the Kiwis, then it becomes a problem for the Warriors junior pathways which would be at a huge disadvantage to the other clubs. I support neither NSW or QLD but do have an appreciation for the true meaning of State Of "ORIGIN" and fear it will turn into a dud if it becomes a free for all.

Serious question.
Pound for pound. Man for man.
Is there a single QLD player who you’d pick in an Australian side tomorrow based on form or reputation?
Maybe Munster over Luai?
Could you pick Val Holmes over anyone of the NSW back 5?
Maybe Papailli as a senior bench prop? He ain’t rolling with any form but maybe he’s an old head?

Possibly Harry Grant (who didnt feature last night) on the bench?

Welch and Munster are the only two I'd pick, perhaps Papali'i also. If Grant wasn't constantly injured he'd go close.

They lived offside in the first 2 tackles of every set. It was awful footy.

Also, I wonder how much of this NSW team being the generation of kids who had to sit through 8 years of watching their team get decimated. They grew up in an era of suffering and have a lot more passion in the jersey then their previous counterparts? Whereas our boys grew up thinking all you have to do to be a QLD legend is put on the jersey.

Worthwhile remembering that the QLD'r passion was born out of years of getting flogged by NSW. Admittedly, NSW teams were full of QLDrs ...which made it even harder to swallow.

I guess right now we're experiencing the same passion from as you suggest, a generation of NSW footballers who had been getting flogged for 8 years...... this NSW team, seems a pretty tight unit. It almost appears as though they've finally got it right.


Here's to Wally Lewis for lacing on a boot. 🍻

Green made the team watch a replay of the first game as motivation.
Didn’t Daniel Anderson while in charge of the Warriors pull a similar stunt at half time of a GF?



Anderson apparently had a pre recorded tape mock commentary of the Warriors winning the gf- pretty sure he said the wrong opponents too. Players didn’t respond well- particularly Campion

Nobody talks about 1996 or 1997.

The Blues can try and make themselves feel better about how they performed under V'landysball 2.0, they can't take 2020 off Queensland.

I was at the game (didn't get the refund, I'm a glutton for punishment it seems). I was sitting in 310 3 rows from the bottom, and the amount of times we had NSW shot on our right side in that first half was unbelievable.

But we constantly fucked it up by either playing the ball too slow or just not going that way. I don't recall Macca looking at the short side once.

Cleary is out of Game 3.

The scans on his shoulder weren't the best. He's off to a see a specialist to see his options. If it requires surgery immediately, it could be season over for him. In some cases, players have been able to delay surgery until the off-season. If that's the case, he's looking at a 3-6 week return.
