Lillyman has been solid for us. He is the least of the problems in our pack. Reliable and dependable. I guess that isn't what the Warriors are about though is it.

Dependably bog average. Watch him pull out a side step and put some sting into his tackles in origin, taking it easy at club level comes in many different forms.

Each to there own I guess. I'm not expecting my props to pull out sidesteps. He does his job for us, if only others in the team could do the same.

Qlander thru and thru, but NSW side looks pretty formidable, coupled with some huge outs for QLD.

Thought a slight edge to NSW, until I saw an interview with James Maloney, seemed more interested in playing golf during camp.

I understand both sides enjoy some considerable social times( well jealous, would be great to be on the drink with Alfie and co). But, QLD players know the bigger task and are mentally ready.

Based on Maloney's comment, QLD to embarrass NSW and breed new players for future domination. Mentally too tough.

Queenslanders have that "smaller place" chip on their shoulder about NSW, a bit like Kiwis compared with Oz. The series always has meant slightly more to them, remember Billy Moore's rant Queenslander chant years ago.

I turned off NRL 360 last night hearing them rave about how tough it is. It is just faster than NRL, not tougher, those really tough days are long gone. Test football is the real deal. Rant over.
 
Not really interested. The Kiwis would kill both sides so it is just a sideshow IMO.
They should beat both teams, Yea a couple of years ago... I was standing there after the game at Suncorp Stadium Anzac test May '15 thinking that the SOO has lost some polish because the best players will not be there but now sadly the NZRL has stuffed that up big time through their backward/amateur and inferior coaching choices. They grab Meninga we grab Kidwell... History. Go the Cain Toads!

No affiliation to either team. Would much rather be watching test football although the kiwis of late haven't interested me either, at least with SOO I don't care who wins. I prefer NSW as I can't seem to get away from that underdog tag. Can't stand slater or smith which helps push me to NSW as well

Will support the morons again.

Mostly rooting against Phil Gould in the comm box at this point. Gallen was good for hating on, but he’s not there anymore.

When first got into it QLD were the eternal underdogs, always amusing what lengths the media will push the NSW barrow to get them back on level pegging these days.

Guess they have to, 10 series wins in 11 years is usually enough dominance for punters to lose interest.

I think NSW win game 1. Everyone will call Walters a moron for not picking slater and having such a shit bench.

Then Slater, Thurston and forwards who aren’t crap like lillyman and Guerra come in, and they win game 2. Assisted by the refs who love a decider. Ricky has a massive cry in the press.

Then game 3 has Thurston winning his final origin THIS IS THE GREATEST MOMENT IN RUGBY LOIGUE WHAT A CHAMPION.

Outlawing shoulder chargers and fighting pretty much killed my interest in Origin.

That being said smashe thoses cane toads!
NSW being so pathetic has waned my interest. Those cockroaches are the Wallabies of the Bledisloe Cup. I long for the day when games and series go tic for tac. Hopefully once the QLD spine retire we will see some competitiveness back into the SOO...
