    Are we entering an era where Qld NRL teams have lost their mojo completely ?

    If the Bulldogs win this weekend & the Cowboys lose v Storm then we could have the bottom 3 positions on the NRL ladder (14th 15th 16th) taken up by the 3 Qld clubs.

    Has Billy Moore yelled "Queenslander" just too many times or is the just something rotten in canetoadville ?

    The end of an era. It'll kill origin if those pea-hearted germs have to endure a decade of failure like NSW did.

    It doesn’t really help that the majority of Queenslanders don’t play for QLD clubs

    Was just thinking this, I imagine the Storm would have as many Maroons reps as the Broncos now wouldn't they?

    The Broncos have had the worst talent scouts in the history of the game for the last 20 years.

    What goes around comes around, especially in sport.
    To keep some perspective the other 3 bottom 6 clubs are NSW clubs. Seems its the heartlands that have a problem?

    So 50% of the bottom six is NSW clubs in a league in which 62.5% of the clubs are from NSW?

    Sounds to me like overpreforming!

    Bottom is bottom, hardly matters how many are above you.

    Yeah but it's QLD at the Bottom and not NSW...

    Look at the top 6. 2/3 of them from NSW. Clearly overpreforming!

    No, the last 10 years, as the Broncos head of scouting and recruitment was Cyril Connell who was very good. He passed away in 2009.

    So I hear, but please explain to me how Cyril Connell was good at his job?

    A few of his misses:
    Smith
    Thurston
    Slater
    Cronk
    Papali'i
    DCE
    and so on.

    The lack of another powerful QLD club in the 90s masked his inefficiency. Once Melbourne came along, he couldn't compete in picking the best talent.

    Well geez, maybe in his twilight years he wasn't as good as when he was recruiting for multiple premiership teams.

    Go piss on his grave if you feel that strongly about it.

    It’s round 5, and NSW have won 1 origin series in a row.

    I’m gonna wait a little while longer before I start crowing on this one..
