Well, last week I wrote “I’ll pick Queensland in the State of Origin. It all depends on the forward packs. Queensland’s doesn’t look as strong in attack, but they are solid defenders, so that may blunt NSW’s advantage. Or not.”
The Queensland forward defence was dominant, particularly in the second half. A well-earned win, with room for improvement.
In the AFL Brisbane have a danger game as Carlton may get a sacked coach improvement. It worked for North Melbourne who would have been favourites this week regardless.
As far as NRL goes, who cares? Queensland won.
