I had mine on!

In fairness, there were several points in the game where it could of gone either way but QLD came out too desperate in the second half and started making mistakes. It was almost like they knew they had to have it won in the first twenty minutes knowing they weren't handling the pace.

Whether you're a blue or a marone, you've got to admit it makes for better tv than the dismal efforts of NSW in previous years. Game 3 is gonna be a corker!

Ya lucky bugger, I went a few years ago and the atmosphere was great.

It helped that I worked for The Evil Empire (Suncorp) so I got top seats at knock-down prices.

Well this'll be the first time i've been to the third game when it's not been a dead rubber so really looking forward to what should be an even better atmosphere than usual.Just hope we get the right result and the "Sea of Maroon" goes home well chuffed < off to check ticket is still in the safe as Vim's on the prowl

Think they should pick Jack Reed from the Broncos as he was born over there and is having a great season

Sad to see Quins in such a bad state Bill - on a positive I heard we are considering going back to being the London Broncos

Yes,very good chance of that,almost certainly wont be Quins any more.Some half decent signings by our recent standards.....Craig Gower...Micheal Witt...Antoniou Kafousi..Shane Rodney,should add a bit of steel and experience for next season.

Me neither,it just hasnt come off for both clubs,but hope we stay at the Stoop,for me its been our best ground/match day experience.Couple of my old mates who still go say 2 young lads to watch for are Sarginson and Dixon from the u20s,would be good to see us back in the old quarters circa 96-97 !
