England sucks. Queensland sucks. NSW rules everything ever.

Hi Matth

Reader request: can you ask Tony to please not do one on the knights. I know what it will look like and it’ll be too painful.

Many thanks

The ones who got away: Cronulla Sharks

I used to go to the ol Newcastle Breakers games. Cold Friday nights but they sold ice cold Hahn Ice Cans and the bar was right there. Like seriously right there! Six or seven of those puppies was like a dream.

Apparently after the game we went to the club and had a drink with the players. Not that I recall and I only went to twenty or thirty games…

Hi Hages

I agree on every point 200%

Well Greg Bird was a Maitland boy so another one that got away from the Knights.

Aaah Nathan Long. With his long flowing locks.

When he was making his way in Reggie’s, Sharks played a semi. I was at the SFS and everytime he got the ball I shouted, “Rapunzel Rapunzel let down your golden hair!” It was barely funny the first time. After 80 minutes, 12 beers and what seemed like 50 hit ups from Longy, the nearby crowd was ready to rip the head off this drunk galah

Big Russ Roderick. Great name.

Queensland's postcodes failed to deliver

Yeah fair play. The 80s was the golden era of the golden haired golden boys in the blue and gold.

Postcodes fail to deliver?

You really don’t understand the mail delivery procedure, do you?

Queensland's postcodes failed to deliver

THAT WAS A MEAN, UNNECESSARY AND ACCURATE DIG ABOUT NEWCASTLE! YOU TAKE THAT BACK!

State of Origin: What if Queensland’s team was selected by the POPE?

Sheesh Cameron Blair never made a rep team? Wow and he was supposed to be the great white hope for the magpies. And David Penna: just look up rugby league players who never reached their potential. Dave Penna always gets a start. Parra centre David Woods also features regularly.

And surely Brian Jackson has gotta get a start at centres?

The best Parramatta players who never played representative football

David, Bluey was a gritty 70s cop show set in Melbourne with Lucky Grills as the portly, moustached lead character. It was later satirised by The Late Show as Bargearse. Lucky was listed as Tubbs Farquhar

Here’s an excerpt from a scene with Fifi Chanel (Natalie Thigh-Blaster):

Bargearse: “I’ve just received a report that someone’s stolen 10 dozen jam donuts from my lunch box.”
Fifi: “What’s that got to do with me?”
Bargearse: “Don’t play dumb. Your boyfriends had his eyes on my lunch box for years. So come on you, don’t deny it. I’m not leaving without me donuts.”

That's not a try, that's a lead runner contacting the outside shoulder

Great read David. We can come up with a logo and rewrite history

Meh. Gotta give the minnows some occasional respite otherwise the Ashes would become just another trophy that England fail to win

UK Reaction: 'Bazball' has completely transformed England's cricket side in one series

If Holland plays on a wicket that’s a burner, is it a Dutch Oven?

(Yes. I know. I’m sorry)

In a spin: Australia's Test team could look very different against Sri Lanka

Yeah but no one will spin it like the Big Show, no one will bash it like the Big Show and no one will score 500 in a test innings except for Big Show.

The right side of the border. Well done.

England are, were and will always remain minnows.

KURT GIDLEY: 'Quite ridiculous' - Maroons pay price for pushing ref with ruck tactics

Reading some of the comments us Blues Roarers on the chats want stability, stick with a team that dominated origin two and select for origin 3:

1. Papenhayzen
2. JAC
3. Burton
4. Mitchell
5. Too
6. Luai
7. Cleary
8. RCG
9. Cook
10. Jurbo
11. Murray
12. Matterson
13. Yeo

Res

14. Tedesco (although his lack of versatility will probably see him kicked from the whole squad. Who picks their fullback captain as bench for origin, anyway?)
15. Paulo
16. Api or Talakai
17. Dufty

KURT GIDLEY: 'Quite ridiculous' - Maroons pay price for pushing ref with ruck tactics

Oh Rob. Rob. Rob. Rob.

See now you’re just being rowdy. It’s Dan Siafiti for Cotter and Latrell for Kayln.

It should all make sense now.

Origin 3 predicted teams: Munster, Haas cleared, Ponga, Kaufusi doubt, Latrell, Fifita, Walsh, Wighton in mix

What’s with the push for Latrell? He’s coming off a long term hammy injury, his motivation can come and go (remember how he was in 2019 before he was dropped?) and the two left centres for NSW have been great.

NSW smashed Qld without him. And Turbo for that matter.

Sure he’s an absolute talent. But if he does his hammy during the game, in a decider, at Lang Park, sheesh….

KURT GIDLEY: 'Quite ridiculous' - Maroons pay price for pushing ref with ruck tactics

STOP HURTING HIS NOGGIN! HES MUCH MORE IMPORTANT HELPING THE KNIGHTS AVOID THE SPOON THAN CONTRIBUTING TO A SERIES LOSS!

Time to do what you should have always done and play Kurt Capewell at the back

Origin 3 predicted teams: Munster, Haas cleared, Ponga, Kaufusi doubt, Latrell, Fifita, Walsh, Wighton in mix

Let’s do a deal:

NSW will rest Haas if Qld rest Munster.

Or double down and we rest Turbo if you rest Val Holmes.

Deal? Yes? Good. I now have it in writing. Can’t back out now, Qld.
