He wouldn't be 'on air' if Queenslanders didn't tune in to hear him. You, GE and most other Queenslanders on this forum aren't your average Queenslander though.

Re: 2024 State of Origin III - Maroons v Blues

Does Gordie know that Felise Kaufusi was also involved in the push and shove as a bench player? I'm sure in response he'd mumble something incoherent about Murray running in while Kaufisi just happened to be there, but ignoring the 8 other QLD players that ran in and piled on the two blues players....

Re: 2024 State of Origin III- Maroons v Blues

Gordie having a sook about Murray getting involved while he was on the bench but you can clearly see Kaufisi also getting involved while he was also on the bench.

I’m ok with either Cleary or Luai missing out. You cannot drop Moses. He was enormous in game 2 and did his job really well last night. He was better than Luai overall this series. Luai, no doubt a gun player, but has a knack for overlooking space and damaging outside backs that are positioned to t...

Not sure I agree with the criticism of the 'non selection' of Fifita. His defence is awful and he would have been up against either Crichton or Martin, both of whom had sensational series, and would have torn him to shreds.

Great effort to win at Lang Park. Really brutal game. Good performances from most of the Blues and not quite the dynamic attacking performances you'd expect from Queensland. I thought Dearden had a wonderful game, and Carrigan but aside from that I thought Queensland was pretty flat overall. Crichto...

He deliberately dragged his foot into his head. I'm not going to call it a kick but it's clearly foul play. NRL game it would be a sinbin.
