    Tell me how well Laurie's "semi-final experienced only" teams went again?

    Although the bit I bolded is probably an oxymoron, he is only an 'expert' on Queensland teams and we haven't played any of them this year so how can he be expected to know how Reed is going?

    Well being from Ipswich there is a very good chance he is.

    99% of QLDers wouldn’t even know who he is.

    They only watch QLD teams up here or Storm games but with only a couple left that is probably lessening. One eyed Mongs most of them.

    I would expect someone who is employed to talk about rugby league, even if they are based in QLD, to have a breadth of knowledge beyond the 3 QLD teams and the opposition they have played thus far.... If you're a league expert based in QLD and the Sunday free to air game is Eels V Dragons like it was last weekend, you'd tune in wouldn't you? Even if neither side is from QLD??

    They aren't the smartest tools in the shed those Queenslanders.

    I reckon they have stopped watching or caring this year with there beloved broncos down the bottom something they aren't used to.

    Then you have the Titans who are crap as usual.

    And the cowboys who are just hanging in but not really threatening at the same time

    ...and an origin team that realistically should get clean swept.

    What about Ruan Sims? She's only an expert on Fijian players
