Are you an Australian? you sound like one.

 

If its only a success because of the biff and aggro I'd say all the guff about it being the best RL in the world is just that, guff. 

 

The intensity and skill is what makes it the best in the league. It's the same reason why SL trumps a bunch of amateurs playing up the local park.

 

That was the game of the year so far. I'm English. State of Origin is rugby leagues biggest and best competition, the only people disputing that are bitter internationalists who don't like the fact origin gets the coverage and respect they think internationals deserve.

 

Go the Blues!

QLD were fairly poor.....I was a little disappointed in the "skill level" and "intensity" showed compared to the hype these games attract......it was a fairly decent game but not amazing, NSW deserved the win....QLD will have to wake up for game 2

No but saying naughty words to a ref is a straight red.

And a longer ban. Super league has become more about the refs, rather than the game of rugby and the players.

This has happened before - NSW need to be able to back up this performance or it's the same old story.

I always want Qld to win but a good contest at Suncorp with the Maroons winning and a decider in Sydney would be a good series.

Just to be clear, fighting is not the game of rugby and is explicitly outlawed by the laws of the game of rugby, even the NRL version.

Or, as an alternative viewpoint, a (possibly non-representative) faction of Superleague fans have become disproportionately obsessive about the refs, at the expense of the game and the players.

Great to see a NSW WIN and as for the BIFF SL NEEDS TO HAVE SOME BLOODY BIFF its like a game of touch compared to this with refs giving yellows and reds left right and centre BRING BACK THE BIFF AND BRING BACK THE FANS

ITS SIMPLE:)

We have more people watching rugby league now than ever before.

 

Those fans you want come back ... they're dead.

I did note that despite the 'incident' happening just before half time that most of the half time discussion was about the play and they got to the reffing after that.  Which is the right way round.

Just to be clear, Rugby League is a contact Sport and occasionally that leads to some friction and aggression, fighting is not condoned anymore than it is in Ice Hockey but there are different ways to deal with it.

I would much prefer a few punches thrown than gouging or biting and some of the dirty stuff that is allowed like high shots.

Just to be clear this is only my opinion.

Just think, we could treble that if we allowed prize fighting to break out whenever and wherever on the field.

Should have played it at a 14000 capacity stadium, would have filled it.

Very good performance by NSW - thought Luke Lewis played really well. Not surprised by Queenslands performance. The likes of Cronk, Smith and Slater have looked well off the boil for weeks now when playing for Melbourne. Cronk looked too predictable with his kicking game. I'd put Inglis in at full back for game 2.

Yes, with those half time sumo wresting displays in the inflatable suits that we used to get at Old Trafford.

Look out Futtocks, I can see an outbreak of Australian skill and intensity breaking out.

I hope that form continues until about March 2014.

Settle down Steven, no one wants to upset you or trigger your master mind in a debate of wits do they?
