The big decider is coming up... Who will win it? Can NSW bounce back from their loss in the 2nd.

Discuss. :)

I'm heading up to Sydney for it, just stoked it's a deciding game! Wouldn't cry if NSW win it but QLD taking momentum into the game and have the experience/wise heads to close it out.

-Look for a meathead like Bird, Merrin or Gallen to get caught up in the emotion, be a hero and throw a punch. It will be a cheap shot
-Look for James McManus to be a real threat....L.O.L

McManus probably won't be the worst winger from Newcastle on the field ;) (I've never liked Darius "I can only be coached by Wayne Bennett" Boyd), McManus just won't have Inglis inside him...

I really hope Queensland wins because it annoys me Merritt gets dropped because of a team defensive structure. Not a particularly big Merrit fan, just think it unfair.

I'm pretty neutral but kinda hoping Qld win just coz I'm dreading the Sydney media wankfest that will follow if nsw win. It was bad enough after game one.

Can't see NSW winning but I do recall a long period of time when QLD couldn't win a game in Sydney.
Truth be known I couldn't give a fuck either way, my main hope is Farah gets injured or throws a punch and cops a suspension.

The Blues have already recruited the next SBW


RUGBY league has found a new version of Roosters superstar Sonny Bill Williams - except this one can really fight.

Willis Meehan is a 116kg, 17-year-old powerhouse who has emerged at the Australian schoolboys championships in Cairns as one of the country's hottest sporting talents.
He is already a gold medal favourite in the super heavyweight division for next year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Meehan is a blockbusting centre for the Sydney Roosters' Holden Cup team and is playing for NSW Combined High Schools, who take on Queensland in today's grand final.
He is the son of former heavyweight champ Kali Meehan who had a career of 42 fights for 38 wins.
Roosters coach Trent Robinson and chairman Nick Politis are backing the rookie's Commonwealth Games bid, declaring the club would be proud for one of its boom players to represent his country in another sport.

To get into Games contention, the teenager had to beat London Olympian Johan Linde, a 30-year-old far more experienced boxer, to win the recent Australian amateur title.

Former heavyweight champ Kali Meehan who had a career of 42 fights for 38 wins.
Australia's foremost boxing critic Grantlee Kieza has no doubts he can win the heavyweight gold medal in Scotland next year.
"To beat an Olympian at 17 years of age shows he's got an enormous future in boxing," Kieza said.
"He'd beat Sonny Bill Williams for sure. Willis has been beating proper fighters while they stop Sonny's bouts a couple of rounds early if he looks like getting beaten."
Somehow this hugely talented boxer/footballer is determined to make a career out of both sports, committing himself to two specialised training programs.
For a youngster who can obviously handle himself in any situation on the footy field, he also fully supports the NRL crackdown on punching.
"There's no need for it we're out there to play footy, not fight," he says.

Willis Meehan playing for NSW Combined High Schoolds.
He's tough, strong and willing enough to play front-row at these schoolboy championships but has the agility and speed to play centre for the Roosters Holden Cup team.
"It gets a bit hard sometimes trying to do both sports," Willis said.
"I wake up in the morning and go to footy training, do it again in the afternoon, and then do my boxing after that.
"I try to get a bit of rest but I do something every day. The training is completely different but I'm managing it."
At this stage he has no preference to either sport, although good judges say he's more a boxer/footballer than Sonny Bill who is obviously a footballer/boxer.
"When I play rugby league I'm part of a group of 17 mates but in the ring it's just me with my dad in the corner," he said.
"He's there to support but he's not throwing the punches for me. I love both sports.
"The Roosters have been awesome. They give me time off when I need it and are totally supportive."
The major goal at this stage is the Commonwealth Games, with the boxing selection trials starting when the footy season finishes in September.
Being at the same club as SBW has its obvious advantages when you are trying to achieve what few other have done.
"I'm close to Sonny we talk a lot," he said.
"The advice he gave me was keep at it, enjoy it while I can and just go hard."
Roosters Trent Robinson is also his biggest supporter.
"Everyone from the top down at the Roosters knows who he is," Robinson said, " He's very tough, very physical and very athletic.
"We've used him at prop, back-row and centres in Holden Cup.
"As a club we'd love to support a kid trying to represent his country at the Commonwealth Games.
"And to give you an idea of how we highly we rate him in footy, he will go full-time with the NRL squad in the off-season."
Probably the toughest job lays with his agent, veteran player manager Steve Gillis, in weighing up all the career opportunities.
"It's very much a step and a time but his aim is to go to the Commonwealth Games so you have to find the right balance between rugby league and his preparations for that," Gillis said.
"We've spoken to the Roosters about that and from the chairman to coach, they're fully supportive and we'll all do what's required to make it work.
"His dad Kali has done it all in boxing and the kid couldn't be in better hands for the challenges he faces.
"He's got great family support from his mum Rowena and two brothers who also play footy and do a bit of boxing."
The good news for NSW fans is that the Kiwi-born teenager has pledged his allegiance to the Blues.
"Australia is my home and I've played all my footy here," he said.
