Aussies love a one sided contest, it feeds the narrative that Origin and all the money locked up in their control of the game is the best form of the code.I’m not convinced it’s fixed- there’s actually a genuine incentive for this fixture to be competitive, and it was in the earlier years when we had a good team. We used to win it regularly in the Cleary years
They are the only country in a proper sport to have their own reffs in every single world cup.
That is actually cheating before you even hear the first whistle in any sport it would be an outrage.
I would love them to try it on at the Olympics with the same arguments they use to justify Aussie Reffs in League...they would be the scandal of the decade and laughing stock, but they wouldnt feel an ounce of shame because having sand paper in your pocket or a Sombrero for Cap, or peptides is a cultural norm.
