I dont think Karmichael has played badly its just the Broncs arent creating many chances going forward this year - I still stand by the fact he is far better defender then Bowen and can catch a bomb - Still I possibly would have used Bowen as the utility rather then Berrigan

Blues team worries me a bit,Mullen looks a decent player but they are really over rating him since Joeys retirement,and maybe a debut at Suncorp will find him out a bit,same goes for Hayne.
Qld to win series 2-1
Gotta agree they should have dropped Bell, moved tate to centre and played Inglis and slater on the Wing

Cant say i agree with Costigan - bit mystifying that one

I remember my 1st Origin game - 1st game of 2005 series which went to golden Point with Matty Bowen scoring the intercept try - Great game Great Atmosphere - I'm so jealous!!!!!!!

I remember it well, that was the first game I saw on TV (been here a couple of years now) ... the guys at work had been building it up "Bigger Than Ben Hur", "Bigger Than God's Undies", etc, etc and the game didn't disappoint.

I've a feeling my years of being a soccer season ticket holder will fade into the distance quickly ... am ... being ... assimilated. I even missed the FA Cup Final last year for the first time in forever ...

Offiah played in good teams ... Widnes then Wigan ....he couldn't tackle a big dinner ...but then he never had too ... He was fast and he scored some superb tries but he was never well liked by his fellow players as they knew his limitations ..

I remember my first ever Origin game .... I used to get the video's from a place in Leigh called Cannings ... the games were a week old ..we are talking 1989 btw ..... used to be first in line when the vids came into the store

It was brilliant ..I also would get the weekly games back then it was still the seperate Brisbane and Sydney comps ..... how times have changed ...and shite I'm getting old

Ticketless Footy Fans I don't mean to rub it it but:

1) I have an Origin ticket in my pocket RIGHT NOW
2) It's 6 rows back on halfway
3) I have already started drinking and will continue to until kick-off ... right after I've done my obligatory 1 hour at work post-lunch.

But I'm sure the view on the TV is just as good ... mwhahahahaha )
