State Of Origin Streak

Queensland State of Origin Heros make it 8 for the Sunshine State

State Of OriginThere were two streaks at ANZ Stadium in Sydney last night. The first and most important one was Cameron Smith’s Mighty Maroons continuing their record breaking streak, to make it eight State Of Origin series in a row.

The other was some fat dick head disrupting one of Origin’s greatest games in a streak which prevented Queensland from putting the icing on the cake with another 6 pointer. This would have made the score 18-10 instead of the final 12-10. Guys with his anatomy should never take their clothes off in public.

It was a game which will be remembered as one of the toughest, and a true origin battle. It had everything that a great origin match can produce. Tough and sometime brutal defence with many flashes of attacking brilliance, hard earned tries, a battle right until the final minute and not a king hit in site. Gallen wasn’t there and Merrin kept his hands to himself.

Queensland coach and past origin legend Mal Meninga said after the match,  “That was a true Origin game. True grit. They showed fantastic character and desire. I’m very happy for them.”

Maninga spoke of the team in glowing terms, “We’ve got a very talented footy side with some great players – some of the best players that have ever played the game – but tonight was all about character and effort.”

State Of Origin at it's best.Although Origin has evolved over the past 30 + years into one of the worlds great sporting spectacles, last nights game had all of the hallmarks of the great battles of the past.

There was the familiar Queensland story of a player continuing to play through pain. If you thought Greg Inglis was sedate, it’s because he injured his posterior cruciate ligament in the first half. He could be out for two months.

it was almost impossible to pick a man of the match for Queensland last night, but the Queensland Captain, Cameron Smith was quite deservedly name player of the series and awarded the “Wally Lewis Medal”
