Given what happened in G2, this was always gonna happen. Hopefully some had $$ on qld for easy money

I'm afraid there has never been a more 'propped up' champion in the history of the game. Seems like a fun guy, but his achievements and ability has never stacked up with the greats of the game.

Disagree. Was an absolute gun at his best. Up there with Joey, Locky etc.

"QLD spirit". Whenever QLD wins its about spirit. How about skill and ability?

Absolutely disgusted at those pea hearts but I can live with it as long as a QLD side never wins the NRL Premiership again

Being a VIC I couldn't care less who actually wins and just hope for a good series/game each time.

That's a pretty impressive coaching start for Slater. Small sample size but he seems like someone that can really rally his team.

It was exciting, but way too many mistakes. From both sides. And as I said earlier in the thread, the first team to stop making them would win. And they did.

Pressure brought all that about mate. Both sides gave it everything. Can't ask for much more as a Rugby league fan.

Fittler you dud
Half of these blokes should never be picked for Origin again, they are a disgrace to the jersey
Absolutely filthy with this series loss.

NSW So much better on paper. 3-2 in the Fittler era is just s**t given the disparity of talent.

He's gotta be gone.

I'd have Joey, Lockyer, Thurstan and co ahead of Fittler on the field, but Freddy is certainly not out of place in their company.

But his career in the coaching box has been underwhelming, both with Roosters and NSW.

Being a Vic = QLD

Don't agree, but all good. The better team won on the night, I'm definitely not disagreeing with that. They got their s**t together.

Proper gladiator stuff

Totally. This is what AFL has gradually lost over the years. I've been on the Storm since day one, but I also started watching the English Super League during lockdown, just love the vibe.

Haha, it's just not the same though, I just can't get around it as much. Have tried to get around one over the years but my heart never cares enough and I just resort to being a neutral fan of the game.
