Re: 2020 State of Origin III - Teams and Game Day

I thought Allen left the Broncos for Souths - before Bennett - because he couldn't get a go at the Broncos?

Except how do you get to Tweed without going into Qld? You would need to bus it there.
I don't know how reliable the source is but I was told the were going up by coach anyway. Didn't sound logical to me?

Re: 2020 State of Origin II - Teams and Game Day

I don't understand why teams are still having to travel on gameday. Only realised when they mentioned it during the coverage. Huge advantage for the home side.

C'mon doc, you and your colleagues should be literally throwing yourselves on coronavirus hand grenades for the sake of the economy. Think of the poor Gerry Harvey's of Australia who have taken a hit over the past year.

Re: 2020 State of Origin II - Teams and Game Day

Papalii was quiet in his first stint. N.S.W targeted him well. It was the very compressed defensive line. NSW changed up their defence from Game 1, and Qld's go forward was completely stunted. Whether it was a lack of leadership on the field, an unwillingness to change the game plan or something el...

Re: 2020 State of Origin II - Teams and Game Day

Costly try before halftime. NSW really needed to convert the amount of possession they had into points.

Less errors for the blues this week and a few from the maroons. Munster is a big loss.

Probably the worst quality and intensity Origin game I can remember. Yes, very un-origin game. Players clearly not in the same headspace or fitness as usual. I don't recall one big hit.

I honestly think the QLD forward pack stacks up well against NSW.
