Absolutely on the spot and I am with you 100% mate. Witnessing QLD win series after series over the years doesn't entice me anymore (don't get me wrong here as I do want my State to do well). Perhaps we don't have those legends of Origin playing anymore and no punch or bite in current QLD team, I too personally would take Broncos Premiership over a QLD series win. The sad part is, neither QLD nor the Broncos are putting up a decent show and smashing opponents. I hope that changes with the Broncos starting today.I totally agree about the rep distraction. Was the main reason I wanted qld to wrap it up in Perth actually (origin has lost its appeal to me in recent years, give me a broncos premiership over 20 series wins). It is a cop out from the players but it's also a reality that they aren't focused on the broncos at the moment. There's way too much hype around origin these days and it takes all the players focus if they haven't learned how to manage it yet..
