Our other team…

We are beyond proud to be QUEENSLANDERs!!!!!!!!

Last night’s State of Origin decider was thrilling – THRILLING we tells ya! Queensland brought their legendary hard on and it was the best game of rugby league we’ve seen in a long, long time. Truly awesome (…which is actually appropriate in this context, Nige.)

We watched the game with Shwe, who (with maroon patches on her wings) is our official team birdie, and settled into a good bottle of red for the duration.

Queensland dominated big time, despite extreme dirty business from New South Wales…

high tackle

Disgraceful.

On a lighter note, there was plenty of ‘almost biffo’ to keep everyone more than happy…

And absolutely no doubt, from kick-off, that Queensland meant business…

Hodges' last stand

What a fabulous send off for Hodges and what a perfect birthday prezzie for Mal! Thanks for a brilliant game, boys, it was enthralling. We love yooz all.

Best aspects of the night: (1) Gallen’s thuggish bradaggio was utterly deflated and (2) Gus Gould was virtually silent in the commentary box for almost the entire match. A great result for everyone, eh.

  1. Hi Megs
    I didn’t know that you had a strong connection with Queensland?!
    Thuggery aside it would be good if NSW started playing like Queensland and passed the ball to each other.

    • Hell yeah, Jas. My daddy was a Queenslander, so we were brought up on the Maroon. State of Origin is one of the highlights of our year. Bugger NSW, Jas – they need to grow a pair. Loved it when one of them started mewling to the ref about the crowd!! Hilarious.
