It's actually pretty odd he hasn't posted. Apart from the clusterfuck that was '14 this is NSW's best chance since 06 to take the damn thing. All those years he talked them up when they didn't stand a chance and now they actually stand a chance and not a peep. Wtf?

Shout out to Broncoman Broncoman

You've been very quiet...
No posts in over a month from the young fella - hope you're all good Broncoman Broncoman.

Hi everyone, yes I have been quiet. I was very busy and focused on my studies in the last month, almost 2000 photos, travelling back and forth to all corners of the city and being involved with my friends. I decided to take a bit of a break. I'm also trying to improve the relationship with my family so I've been trying to speak to them as much as possible trying to make things happier and better. But i'm ok, passed everything and trying to remain as happy as possible.

Of the NSW team they announced of course i have some criticisms but I feel they named a good enough team and I'm pumped to see Hayne back (NSW's chances have improved with him back), good to see Peats get a crack, Jake T deserves a go, happy with Cordner as captain. Pearce is well 50/50 stuff but he has been good this year and he is the best halfback NSW have got so you just have to get behind him and the whole team as best you can.

Forget your family Bman and improve your relationship with BHQ. We missed ya and we enjoy hearing from you.

Please post again on Wednesday. I know it will be difficult when the Maroons towel your Blues up, but we always enjoy your perspective.

Apparently it wont be a sell out on Wednesday night. Not surprised. Been a total gouge-fest over the past few years. QRL has been really arrogant about putting up prices.

You know you have stuffed up when you can't sell out an Origin match in Brisbane.

Can't wait for the comments from Blues fans. "Can't even sell out Suncorp Lolzor!!!!" I don't think they grasp the price gouging that goes on.

Literally had a nightmare that Woodsy tore a hammy in the captain's run and they had to bring Paul Vaughn in as replacement. In my dream I couldn't believe that the incompetent NSW coaches were helped out so amazingly by the "footy gods" as to cover up their ridiculous first choice picks of Wallace & Woods. I was so relieved when I woke up. Haha.

im suprised no one has discussed Frizzels move to lock, as good as he is im not sure how hell go at lock
Frizzel will be fine whether they play him on the edge or at lock. Matter of fact, I think him at lock is arguably better for their team.

Where they messed up is playing Jackson over Graham. A back row of Graham, Cordner and Frizz is absolute dynamite.

Strong team from the Blues, huge challenge ahead for Queensland. I believe they're up to it though.

I'm taking the Father in Law along to game 3 (I think its a bucket list event as he's never been to an origin and turns 79 this year)
we were prepared to pay a premium and got goodish tickets just beside half way but at the front of the top tier. Still $200 each and even though I prefer to watch from high up it's a **** load of money for a footy game from those seats.
That's a pretty good BBQ with friends right there, no fighting for a piss or $8 for a rum etc etc.

It will be a great experience for him to go to his first Origin game. Enjoy.

200 for average tickets fmd
We had corner seats on the 2nd tier a few years ago. One of the last games with a punch-on - the one with Merrin I think? Iirc they were like $150ish each. It's disgusting tbh

Especially seeing as the stadium facilities are so average. Not nearly enough toilets, food is ridiculous - $12 for four nugget things and chips ffs and the concourse is terribly cramped.

I was at that game, the in laws from FNQ were down for that one, we had to buy these "Qld Membership" tickets - $160 each for 5th level behind the goal posts. They had advertised $80 tickets but when I logged on they were "all sold out" - I logged on exactly when they went on pre-sale. Thieves.

It was a fine fight, Tatey got sent off for getting punched in the head. Classic reffing
