I thought I'd start up this thread to create discussion over the next few months. I know it seems far away but I'm already excited for this series.
You can't understate the power of a 3 match series. The ability it has to build interest as there is always redemption for the losing team in the second match and the potentially nail biting 3rd match creates sporting theatre. This I feel is what origin draws most of it s appeal on the simple maths that provides a square up and an ultimate winner in game 3.
Watching the nba finals you get to see adjustments made from the first game and you get to see the coaching chess match. With a bigger sample size you get to see which team truely is better which will define the kiwis as truely the best team in the world or as england as an up and coming powerhouse.
This is a thread for any news, updates, crowds etc on the upcoming series.
