A lot of new blood in these teams ,   especially NSW.

Brad Fittler said it all when he reasoned that Origin is another level and while he is pleased with the NSW squad ,    There is always the doubt as to how many will take it onto an Origin Park.

macca - qld have lost thurston, cronk, smith, and slater . I'm a qld'er but i just can't see us winning tomorrow night. 
best bet is over the 37 points total score. there are some dodgy defenders on the paddock and the ref's wont stop origin like they have been in the NRL

No arguement from me on what you say , however it's not like Slater & Smith are playing for NSW .     A lot of newbies have to rise to the occasion.     always a question .
   I've backed Qld at 3.3 ,   I'm laying them at 3.15
Surely they won't go out further Than the 3.3.

I might add, i am not a good Trader.

OOOWAAAA ...    Would have been a disaster for some Traders there, Slater out will see huge market changes.   NSW at about $1.50 now .. Too short.



1.58 into 1.50. Big change for this type of market. Can’t see QLD troubling them here. But then I don’t really know what I’m talking about.



Closer than I thought. It’s raining cash though. First try scorer dart hit, UBET ultrabet hit, still alive in the HT/FT market. Sometimes you just get lucky I suppose.

Good first half from both .... Top Referee does wonders to a match ... He is letting it flow and the next 40 minutes will be terrific .
   Qld can win this.       bet they aren't $3.3 now .

Lets hope Mitchell does not get psyched out by Chambers, and Roberts gets help defending Munster and GI.

Good first half of rugby league!

Yep, great half, one blue by WC and they score, still waiting on GI to do something out of the box.

They were 2.0 before that NSW try. Probably 2.5 or thereabouts now though.

Game could have gone either way. 3 critical decisions against Qld. Gagai lost ball non-penalty dodgy , Trovoic try a double movement & last try off a pass at least 3m forward. Good time to get on Qld to win the series to duplicate last years result

Qld didn't get the bounce of the ball but the best side on the night won .

Chambers has to go ,   He cost Qld dearly tonight both in attack and defence .
Slater's replacement was ordinary .
Makes for a good Origin 2 ....   With Slater in, It will be a different ball game .
The final scores were about right .

 Both captains went in with question marks - both were outstanding.
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

I watched a different SOO game to the rest of you.
That or my appointment with the ophthalmologist next week is over due.

NSW won with a team of debutantes.

Qld's try in the 2nd half had 2 forward passes. But, NSW scored off a forward pass too.

Greg Inglis is getting dirtier as he gets older, as they do. The tackle when he tried to lift his team by standing offside and slamming the NSW player just as he got the ball was a sin bin offense. A professional foul.
But no, he's Greg Inglis you can't do that. Several times throughout the game I thought he would be penalised but, it is SOO not NRL and the referees in the 2nd half let Qld get away with murder.

NSW with a more even handed refereeing display will smash Qld in Sydney.
Yes the penalty count went against Qld tonight, but only because they offended the most.

Chambers should be given the season for lifting his knee to Cooks groin.
But no it won't happen.
He is as dirty a player as there has ever been and needs to be suspended long term to stop the rot.

Best player = De Belin.
Tackled like his life depended on it while he was out there. He'll get more game time next game. I hope.

Did I mention I'm seeing an ophthalmologist next week?
I started with nothing and still have most of it left

I might need to see my ophthalmologist as well Scamanda. NSW dominated the game and always looked to be traveling like winners with Qld needing to find something that just wasn't there to get home.

I did find that Qld try amusing. The Moloney to Mitchell pass is called forward and in the very set following it there are 2 passes clearly more forward that lead to a try.

It as quite simple really. Aside from Kafusi the qld pack offered nothing. They are a big bopper short.
Matt Scott will be straight back in if he has a decent game this week. Papalli has to start as well

As Scamanda stated above, some of you blokes where watching a different game (including himself). If Qld didn't have the more punishing defence ill be a monkeys uncle (& I would have preferred to have kept my family out of it). And can someone pls explain how Trovoic's try wasn't a double movement (as Morgan was going on about). He leaped into the air - came down in the field of play with the ball touching the ground - Qld hands all over him - & he lifts the ball up & promotes it across the line. It was not momentum that's for sure. Oh - & the 3m forward pass into the corner try. If NSW were penalised as they should have been when Gagai "lost" the ball the game changes completely - would have been a penalty 9 out of ten times in any normal match. And yes - I am a touch dirty !

Ha - what a fudge photo. When he started to promote the ball there were hangs on him - which constitutes a double movement. Watch the replay

I did watch it at the time and was skeptical on first viewing, but when it went upstairs and they replayed it from different angles I couldn't see a hand clearly on him, and the bunker obviously couldn't either so it upheld the on-field decision.

& the penalty count was 4 to 1 AGAINST QLD - so NSW were hardly hard done by ! Make a group booking with that eye doctor will you Scamanda - & get him to check for colour blindness while your at it !

So Inglis wasn't 5m offside when he illegally hit Trbojevic?

If it had been Trump getting flattened you wouldn't have said a word .
   Great to see the analysis making a price for us Maroons next time.

With Qld's backbone on the sidelines I felt NSW were not convincing enough to be Fav in Origin 2.

   One for me to trade up on .   During that game I kept saying ,   what massive overs QLD ..   Didn't work out that way and I had greened up on both for a little.

   The improvement is in Qld with Slater in. Chambers out.

So if 1 penalty each cancels each other out and one was clear cut, you think the game was decided on 2 penalties?
