Funny to think that the same night that NSW last won a series, it was announced that London was to host the 2012 Olympic games. And we are now only a couple of months out from those Olympic games and they haven't won since!
 
I almost forgot about John Howard, it has been that long.

Come to think of it I think I was in year 10... I finish my bachelors degree in like 2 weeks... Holy shit that was so long ago.
 
12. This year's Year 7s have not been in primary school to see a NSW Origin Victory.
 
13. Australia had not yet qualified for the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
14. YouTube had not yet been launched.
15. The Rock was bearable around Origin time.
