Despite no help from the NRL, the Dolphins will still win a comp before Parra 😉

NRL NEWS: Gus slams ‘amateurish’ NRL over Dolphins, Peachey on way out of Tigers, IRL bans trans players

As someone from neither NSW or QLD who definitely ‘doesn’t get it’, I just love the hate between the states. I’m a Souths fan so of course I’m slightly Blue-leaning but I just love the spectacle and quality of the game and look forward to it weeks in advance like I imagine the diehard fans do too.

'You just don't get Origin': Recollections of a New South Welshman in enemy territory

If Essendon can announce a mid season review into their football department, surely the AFL can launch their own into the hysterical state of officiating that we fans have to suffer through

How the AFL has completely botched a noble quest for umpire respect and made them more despised than ever

Origin teams: How they'll line up - late changes as final teams announced

Addo-Carr a bizarre omission, would much rather see Graham on a wing than Tupou if there’s gonna be a change

Origin teams: How they'll line up - late changes as final teams announced

Strongly disagree that neither Collingwood or Gold Coast are “remotely playing finals”. Both teams have clearly shown they’re going to perform and contend for the bottom half of the eight. Wouldn’t be surprised if by September one of if not both of them are on par with Freo

The Fremantle bubble has burst, and they could be in freefall

Port have been well below expectation but Essendon, West Coast and North have been far more disappointing this season

Don't let their winning streak fool you, Port are still bang average

NSW are blessed with a plethora of Latrell replacements and any of them would do a more than impressive job. If Freddie keeps his team similar to last year I can see Crichton being preferred due to the Panthers combination with To’o and Luai on that left side. He’s also a huge fan of Burton who played that exact role for Penrith last year so he too could be a chance. As for the utility role, Wighton has been poor in Origin the last two years and Hynes looks like the perfect man for the job.

On QLD, they will have to do something massive to upset the Blues this year but I can’t see any of the popular inclusions like Cotter, Nanai or even Walsh dragging the team ahead of NSW. One man I’d love to see however is Pat Carrigan; big body, great player and very underrated.

Experts Roar: Which uncapped player should be selected for Origin? Hynes, Nanai, Cotter, Koloamatangi

Reportedly the club had advised players not to go out and do exactly what they did, hence the disappointment from Simmo and the rest of the club, but perhaps we’ll never know
