Thanks to NSW being so terrible since 2006, most Queenslanders can now count to eight, although it is worrying to think that if the dominance continues for four more years, they will run out of fingers to count on.
It’s a bit of a clusterfuck to tip, and it will be while “The Spirit of Artie Beetson contest” goes on for the next two months, so it’s a lottery as to who will play and who will win – even more so than the start of the 2014 season.
Canterbury Bulldogs vs Sydney Roosters
Gold Coast Titans vs New Zealand Warriors
Wests Tigers vs Brisbane Broncos
Cronulla Sharks vs South Sydney Rabbitohs
QLD vs NSW
Game of the Round
Canberra Raiders vs Nth Queensland Cowboys
Due to the glorious game of “Greg Inglis vs NSW”, we’ve got a split round this week. Due to the glorious game of “Every Queenslander has a heart the size of Pharlap”, most of the good players are missing from their respective team. This means that the Raiders might even crack a win. I’ve tipped them, so you know it’s serious.
This is still my favourite Origin photo. It has the passion of jumper pulling, the emotion of pashing Terry Hill and the hair of Laurie Daley
