We can beat the blues no problem. NSW lived offside that second game. As good as they played they were all over us all game and barely pinged.
They had 58% possession which is huge in Origin. On top of that when we had chances we went the wrong way most times opting to kick instead of testing their edges because it was fifth. Some of it made no sense we seemed to be kick happy when running the ball is how we caused problems in game 1. We can fix all our issues and we can win providing the effort is there.

Did people truly think QLD even stood a chance at half time?

The only team that's managed to come back from 12 points down and win had a backline of Karmichael Hunt, Brent Tate, Justin Hodges, Steve Bell, Greg Inglis, Darren Lockyer, Johnathan Thurston and Cameron Smith at hooker. And that was more NSW collapsing.

Definitely think we were still in with a chance at half time, but it would have taken a large momentum swing. With Ponga, Munster and DCE, we are definitely should be capable of coming up with points. Unfortunately, the forward pack pretty much just made negative metres even after half time, and NSW's kick returns were just too good and put us on the back foot in defense.

At halftime I was hopeful of a comeback but once that first penalty kick was taken by nsw you could feel the heads drop

I hate seeing Chambers with the ball because you know he is going to take the wrong option every time or give away possession. Some **** assassinate him, I reckon Boyd would be better than that muppet and Boyd is better than nobody.

I’m guessing that is a shot at me. The point was it was half time and we were down by 12. He didn’t say anything about a family emergency. He was turning off because the players were pea hearted and for sure it was the worst performance I have seen from Queensland in ages but it pisses me off when people have no understanding of what it takes to go out there and take on a serious physical challenge.
We have all turned off a bad game with 10 minutes to go but this is State of Origin and if you are too weak to cop a loss after a decade of dominance then **** off and watch Masterchef.
Agreed, it read like an absolute toys-out-of-the-cot tantrum and stunk of horrible entitlement.

Sims out of Origin 3 unless he beats his charge.

Blessing in disguise for Freddie, he can now bring Klemmer back in without having to drop anyone.
