I'm hoping this series cements his memory in Origin folklore!


And it did.Well done Bill

I felt quite the opposite. Caught way out of position twice - centrefield at marker - which meant Glasby had to defend wider against fast moving backs where he wouldn't normally be. And when was the last time you saw a centre get dragged into touch twice in a game?

I thought Smith was quiet until the final few minutes before the try. Standing at second receiver for the last try and did a great job.

QLD's attack was so slow and no one wanted to run the ball towards the post. Gave their outside backs very little room to do anything.

Papalli looked a superstar two years ago... This year he has just looked fat, lazy. No urgency at all to get to his feet and play the ball quickly. Sucks for the next forward with his hand up for a run.

Hayne was the best on field, for Queensland, without him NSW would've won.

Some of his defence was good, but his pass selection was awful and his execution even worse.
And did anyone else give a cheer when he had his Mundine ball hogging moment?

Would be a great reward for 3 seasons worth of consistent performances at NRL level

Darius Boyd likely to miss Game 3 due to thumb surgery. Kevvie Walters talking up Munster coming in to replace him in the centres: http://www.nrl.com/thurstons-season-in- ... fault.aspx

Storm Man has been long overdue to get a game. Turns up every week. Works hard . Has lost a little pace since they confiscated his motorbike, but still looks fit. Worth a gamble.
