Excellent points, Organix. Origin 2 last year was the worst I've ever seen. It wasn't because the Maroons lost and the streak ended - let's be honest it was bound to happen sooner or later. It was because there was sooo much grubby stuff and foul play in it and the match officials were seemingly oblivious to it. I think it was Phil Gould who said the comment 'hopefully a game of rugby league breaks out soon.' Truly disgraceful. If this series is a repeat - and I have a strong feeling it might - then I'm going to lose interest in it fast. I suspect the Blues know they can't win in a fair contest and they are counting on the referees to put the whistle away. With no Gallen or Bird surely it must be a cleaner contest by default, right?
