Forget the scoreline, there was only every going to be one winner in Darwin tonight, pretty clear early on who was the 'one goer'  :shutup:

Shame when there is rules for some and then rules to protect JT  emthdown

The sad part is the Cowboys are good enough on their own, they don't need the leg up they got to tonight   :no:

What was that penalty count in the 2nd half? About 5 or 6 nil to Qld? Many of them dubious "interpretive" penalties.

NSW would have won that game if they got one single penalty in the back part of the 2nd half.

Here we go. Poison Pen's conspiracy theory #2768

A 3rd match dead rubber means millions in lost advertising revenue to Channel 9. Brown paper bag went down to the referees shed at half time  :shutup:

What a load of crap. NSW has no one to blame than themselves. What was Hayne on about in the second half? Think they thought they had it won. Sadly for them no one let Queensland in on the news. Never underestimate Champions.

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.

 :yes:

I applaud QLD for hanging in there and being close enough to win that game but I they are way past their best.

NSW lost that QLD did not win that.

Andrew Johns was spitting chips after the game and he was 100% correct.

Laurie Daley was driving me nuts with the way he is taking this loss. That was a diabolical loss. He should have been absolutely shoving it up the players asses for that effort in the last half hour.

Disgusted.

Conspiracy theories and Queensland "passion" aside, the defence on NSW left side where Hayne is was atrocious.

It is only a matter of time before Latrell Mitchell plays Origin. Or is it. Hope it doesn't become a "thing" and they keep not picking him.

Why do they insist on picking dinosaurs like Hayne who have been part of one of the longest losing sequences in sporting history and not give youngsters like Mitchell a run?

PP7

I couldn't agree more. QLD bit the bullet after game 1 and left the old tag of "loyalty" out the door.

It will be interesting if Hayne keeps his spot.

I also agree with Authorized regarding Laurie Daley's comments. He has to be kidding to say they didn't give instructions to target JT.

Maybe it's time for Andrew Johns to put his hat in the ring as coach and really toughen NSW up.

Can not go along with Latrell Mitchell just yet. He is not ready, that is for sure.

The Manly fullback would come in if you were to make any changes.

One change I would make is Boyd Cordner as Captain. He is not a captain.

Super game of Rugby League. Could have been all over if Hayne had used an unmarked man on his outside rather than go for gold himself. Stopped taking any notice of anything that dribbles out of Andrew John's mouth a long time ago. Some of us don't forget how he covered himself in glory.

Like PP7 I'd love to know what that 2nd half penalty count was as I'm almost certain NSW didn't get one. Can't remember the penalty count getting a mention from the Ch9 commentary team in the 2nd half or at all for that matter, wonder why? On the commentary, please, please, please Foxtel, throw whatever $$$ is needed to get this off Ch9 so I don't have to listen to that dribble.

Agree Hayne is a liability. That try he slaughtered late in the first half exemplified his selfishness to a tee. Said to my son at the time, that was game over right there as the blues were on a roll & there was no coming back from 20/22-6 down with their tails up.

Blues were their own worst enemy in that second half but geez the refs gave QLD a leg up. I could not believe a reverse angle was not shown on the Holmes "try". No evidence his foot touched the line my Ar$e. I guess taking out kick chasers is now fair play, as the refs continually let this go and if you lose the ball in a tackle it is now automatically a strip penalty. I will give them one wrap for not awarding a penalty to Slater when he took a dive chasing a kick late in the 2nd half. Dead set I would have been paying a visit to my local JB HIFI this morning for a new tele if that had been awarded.

I was at the ground with a mate from WA, after 5 minutes I turned to him and said 'lets go, NSW can't win tonight'

There was certainly a 'shift' in the interpretation of refereeing compared to game 1.

Super game of Rugby League.

Really? It wasn't a patch on the first game which had far more skill and spectacle, the dewy surface last night just didn't allow it.

Pretty much nailed it Kicker.

With all the technology we have, they trot out that rubbish. I'd be happy to see the reverse angle just to prove his foot didn't hit the line and his heel stayed up yet we'll never know  :shutup:

Walters as much as admitted that the foot probably brushed the line but was happy to accept the good fortune

My big query is the MOTM award . . was he picked prior to the match when NSW was expected to win, or at halftime when it looked as though they would

My MOTM was Slater, but thought that Gagai would prevail because of tries scored

So the NSW Referees gave QLD a " leg up". The late Barry Gomersall "The Grasshopper" would have a grin from ear to ear wherever he is. It is always a mighty night when the Maroons come back to beat NSW particularly on their own dung hill. It is even more enjoyable when the blues' fans start whinging about their own referees.

Seems that fist pump after kicking the winning goal has proved costly for Thurston and North Queensland.

Only a Qld would say that.  :whistle: It's irrelevant where the refs are from these days as it's a national comp but  in those days the refs were state based & picked by the states, massive difference.

Anyone fair dinkum would admit QLD got the rub of the green.

Some decions went there way but I can't blame that on the loss. Daley & Pearce are the ones who have to answer to that

Only watch The State Of Origin and bits of the Grand Final these days but for mine the problem for league is that the rules are not enforced.

Watching players following kicks being taken out and ignored by the referees had me shaking my head.
Referees are too easily able to impact results in the game simply by how much possession they allow any team.

Seems like the game got the desired result.......now for the decider!

Much prefer union where the right for possession is always a contest.

As well as the farce of a league scrum, watching someone meekly hand the ball to an opponent and say "we've had our six turns and now it's your turn" doesn't excite me much anymore.

The cockroaches are still whinging about the referees (their own referees). The national competition was formed well before State based referees were dispensed with. I can understand how some of these blues supporters feel. Must be galling to win one series every ten years when you have three times the number of players to draw from. I remember when they played State football in AFL/ VFL and South Australia won a match. It was hugely embarrassing to the Vics. It was like the end of the World to the Vics. Imagine if Victoria had to endure what the poor old cockroaches have been through for the last ten years.

You only had to watch 2 weeks ago when Thurston went at the ref and told him to take control (why he wasn't penalised is anyone's guessed) up until then nothing illegal had happened yet he was allowed to influence the ref.

He then gets hit in a late tackle and rightly received a penalty. What was the problem though was not 10 minutes later, a blatant late shot went unchecked and when the players took offence they were penalised! The Cowboys scored in the next 6, it totally changed the flow of the game  emthdown

Everyone lauded how good he was but when you a playing protected it makes it pretty easy  :wacko:

Still whinging and whimpering to use a greyhound expression. Even Gus acknowledges how good this bloke is/was. Get over it , you lost ,again, again ,again.

Penalty count was 6 to 4 wasn't it ?
Not seeing a lopsided count and any reason to carry on.
As for the try, his toe was clearly in with his heal raised, the touch judge had a better view than anybody and deemed him in.
There was no evidence to overrule it, so what did you expect the bunker to do.
The inclusion of Thurston and Slater made all the difference and it is only the slack defence up the middle that has nsw competing.
If we fix our laziness up the middle the blues are no different to any other side they have fielded in the last 8 years
