Being born and bred in Sydney and playing junior rugby league for Balmain under Keith Barnes I of cause support NSW.
But please help me understand why I was hoping JT would kick that goal?
Then it hit me.
If you really love the game of rugby league then how can you begrudge "Dad's Army" that win?
The 2nd half from NSW was shocking. I have said for many years that Hayne will lose just as many games as he will win for you. He has to be one of the most selfish and non team players I have seen.
Why on earth the Titans payed so much for him I will never know. I say, let him go to French Rugby Union.
I don't feel QLD can keep patching up JT and a few others and win game 3. If they do win game 3 I will be the first to congratulate them.
QLD unlike NSW have enormous pride in their QLD jumper and it keeps coming back and biting NSW on the backside year in year out.
You can't coach that into a side what QLD has built.
Regardless of your "Origin" you must man up and applaud a brillant side that makes Rugby League such a great spectacle.
Maybe one day NSW will have the same passion for 80 minutes and take over the mantle with their younger team that is their best for some years.
I hope NSW stick with their current side except for Hayne as he will only lower the chances of their rebuild.
