I'd adopt Munster's son or let my missus be inseminated with his sperm, just so the kid would be able to play for NSW in 21 years time.

What a f**king athletic specimen that man is. It's not one-off performance either. He has strength, power and balance that you just cannot train. It's DNA.
He’s a weapon for sure

Fittler’s tactic of using the backs to do the yardage sets worked well for the first 20.
Slater responded with well timed forward replacements.
Fittler needed a plan b once Qld got on top and didn’t really put it into place until it was too late.

Few conspiracy theories getting thrown around in here, none of them make any sense but it's an interesting concept none the less

NSW didn't win that game because they weren't good enough to take their chances, that's all there is to it. It's not because the NRL wanted a 3rd game or because Channel 9 wanted a decider in Brisbane, it's none of those things. You see what happened is that QLD scored more points and thus were declared the winner, it's that simple

Nathan Cleary is just Mitchell Pearce with more luck. What a f**king dud showing from the media’s best player in the game.

got heavy 2011 origin vibes out of last night when NSW got similarly trounced after thinking just picking the dragons team would guarantee victory.

lastly, who the f**k is Martin? Haven’t seen a bigger hack get thrown a rep jersey like that just because of who he plays for since Steve Simpson
Thankfully you're not in a position of influence, because you don't know a thing about Rugby League.
Steve Simpson would fold you in half like he did most opponents.

216 games of NRL, 13 Origins and 7 tests for Australia.

What a dud!

Channel Nine want that decider in Brisbane. NSW won this, series over.
I was watching the game last night, my brother gave me a call, it was at the time where Chricton slams a QLD player on his back, Klein awards a penalty tackled cited. Anyway he said to me soon the NRL will be playing touch football rules soon.

My brother knows I won't answer his call if it is during the match... I've never had a missed call from my brother during the match.

Remember, your lot are still tunnelling out from a salt mine after last year's loss. This year isn't over just yet buddy.
Haha, "I'm not crying, you are!"

I do recall thinking it was the referee's fault after we lost 50 to 6...........

You're a good Labor supporter then.

That whole ASADA scandal was a political stunt by the ALP to take the heat off Juliar Gillard and her cronies over the Craig Thomson and Eddie Obeid scandals.

Where was that underworld involvement those wafflers Kate Lundy and that merkin Jason Clare were waffling on about?

If you read into it and not just the bs parroted by that late alcoholic Rebecca Wilson you'd know the whole thing was a Labor political witch hunt.

if a player gets smashed and their teammates carry on hard enough a penalty will generally be called. That tackle falls under the category of “good rugby league tackle”

officiating was disgraceful last night across the board. Flagging good balls as forward whilst letting some absolute howlers go.
