You do know that you can't have more than 1 origin right?
You can depending upon how eligibility rules define origin.

Some use where you first played at a certain level, others location at a certain age.

Eligibility is a shit fight still in NRL, and that's just with two states.

I was born overseas, I live in Darwin, but I lived the majority of my life in Adelaide. I would feel equally at home representing the Allies or SA.
That's a fantastic story, but where is your origin?

I'm not disputing the fact that there is different rules regarding the eligibility of someone's "origin" but you still can't have more than one origin haha.

By your definition, which I'm assuming is birth

Reality is no comps to my knowledge use birth

I think SoO criteria should be:

Either;
a) Where you were born, or
b) Where you grew up, or
c) Where you first played Qooty

I'm not saying it has to be birth, but people saying "I was born in WA, then moved to QLD, now I live in NSW" and then choosing NSW as their SoO is just not right IMO.
What age though? If they have lived in NSW since 16, they have a fair argument.

You're also forgetting this is a fantasy comp, where 99% post under a persona. Who gives a shit about the accuracy of origin?

Hey if someone just straight up says “I’m from Perth” even though in RL they’re from Brisbane, then we’d be none the wiser, it’s moreso people that are changing there state because if numbers.

I don't mind that though

I'd rather 5/6 teams full, than 4 because others just fall short

I'm not even playing though, so that's an indicator how seriously I'm taking it
