State of Origin 3 – the Maroon-wash beckons

With the series wrapped up in game 2 there’s only 2 things to play for now…for NSW its to save face, for Qld it’s to grind NSW into the dirt with a 3-nil whitewash.

Looking at the teams its good to see that NSW are sticking to their tried-and-true method of mad panic and desperation to win at least one game.  8 changes!!!  Are they kidding??  surely by now they would realise that the lack of team stability is one of the factors in their habitual thrashing.

Admittedly they have made a few wise selections…Michael Jennings and Luke Lewis for a start.  but then they go ahead and pick the usual liabilities i.e. Paul Gallen and Kurt Gidley.  With 4 debutants, including 2 props I think they are really going to struggle.  The new guys will either be overwhelmed by the occasion or worked up way too much and go all Luke O’Donnell.

For mine, Qld to win by 12.

What are your thoughts?

    Instability was a hallmark of NSW origin selections in the early 80s and it looks like in times of crisis that’s what they fall back on. How can any New South Welshman get a sense for the importance of origin if they’re likely to be a one gamer?
    And sorry for being crude, but who are Kurt Gidley and Paul Gallen sucking off to keep getting selected?

      I’m with you on that one. Gallen is a brain explosion just waiting to happen, and Gidley is a definite utility player…shit in every position.
      Must be rooting someone’s ugly daughter…
