    6 Straight series coming our way. Another meltdown and kneejerk reaction to a loss in Brisbane has just holed the NSW ship. OHH well maybe next year for the blues. NOT.

    Maybe under the high ball but he has offered nothing in attack, maybe that is because roosters have pierce and carney and anasta but really NSW need some attacking flair judging by the first game, especially with Jennings out who was their best player in game 1 and I don't think mini will do that for them.

    NSW need to play safe to win and the team picked can give them flair.

    The refs have instructed a fast pace game to help the mobile NSW forwards, the game is held in NSW and I assume all 50-50 calls will go the way of the C0ckroaches to promote a decider in the third.

    This will be Queensland's biggest test and will take an remarkable team to pull it off!

    I guess the way forward is to score more points. Hopefully the Blues will under estimate Inglis and he can find better form off the back of service from Thursto, Lockyer, Smith and Slater.

    The crowd and the referees will probably be against Queensland.

    If a club coach made the changes Stuart has, he would be on a hiding to nothing but this is Origin and so there is always some doubt.

    But not much :-) Qld x 12

    Is Game 2 sold out? It had better be because a steady stream of RL identities have been saying that very thing on NRL on FOX and FOX SPORTS NEWS.

    Here's one aticle relating from Courier Mail but I read it elsewhere


    REFEREES boss Bill Harrigan has warned that delaying tactics in the tackle will not be tolerated in Origin II.
    Queensland captain Darren Lockyer said yesterday Harrigan had informed coaches Mal Meninga and Ricky Stuart that he was not impressed by the slow play-the-balls in game one and the sides could expect a crackdown in the second game.

    Referee Tony Archer has been dropped for game two after 10 consecutive Origin games.

    He and Jared Maxwell have been replaced by Shayne Hayne and Ben Cummins.

    "I think Harrigan has spoken to Ricky and Mal and said that he felt the play-the-ball area could have been a little bit better in terms of not lying around," Lockyer said.

    "Going on the team they [NSW] have selected, they know it will be policed. They are not going to allow three guys to lay on top of the guy. Once you have made the tackle, there needs to be movement from the tacklers.

    "They have selected a lot of back-rowers. They have picked a team that suits that. They will be a bit more up-tempo in the middle. We have to work out ways to combat that."

    It's weird to see Thurston actually publically dissing Soward.

    I love it though!

    Taylor says smaller Blues side a threat

    HE IS a 120kg barrel of muscle, but hulking Maroons forward Dave Taylor is firmly of the opinion that size doesn't matter.

    The man they call Coal Train believes the Blues decision to stack their pack with back-rowers has the potential to derail Queensland when they hit Sydney on Wednesday for Origin II.

    NSW coach Ricky Stuart's decision to select only two specialist props in his 17-man side has largely drawn criticism north of the Tweed.

    But Queensland giant Taylor is wary.

    "I don't believe size is an advantage in the game now," he said.

    "Definitely having fitter, quicker blokes who can do a lot more work definitely makes things a lot easier.

    "They are going to try and come through the middle and get us big fellas tired and make it so we make mistakes.

    "We need to go away and make sure we are fully prepared for that and confident in our abilities to defend it."

    Inexperienced front-rowers Trent Merrin and Tim Mannah have been handed the massive task of matching the Maroons mighty rotation of Petero Civoniceva, Matt Scott, Ben Hannant and Taylor.

    Blues skipper Paul Gallen, who usually plays in the middle, has been shunted up front to open the way for the inclusion of five back-rowers: Beau Scott, Ben Creagh, Greg Bird, Anthony Watmough and Luke Lewis.

    Asked if he would choose just two inexperienced props in the code's toughest arena, Meninga said: "Only if we were devoid of front-rowers. We haven't had to make that decision, we have the best front-rowers in the game playing for us.

    "Matty Scott, Petero, Benny Hannant, David Shillington, big Dave (Taylor) and Jacob Lillyman ... we're in a very envious position.

    "They have picked a very mobile side, very well-skilled.

    "They are a bit short on front-rowers but will try and play an up-tempo game."
