The NSWRL and the QRL must have some money to burn for Origin. Massive squads going to these camps and I read today that NSW are going into camp at the Manly Novotel before games 2 and 3 next year and they are looking at water taxis to take the players to training at Homebush. Then you had Qld paying the coach whisperer some ridiculous sum last year.

I get Origin makes a bucket load (although I am not sure how much goes to NSW/QRL compared to the NRL) I do wonder if some of those excesses could be paired back slightly and the money focussed on grass roots.
