    Default Why State of Origin is so important

    Qld has been playing NSW in Rugby League since around 1910. From 1910 to 1979 the rules of player selection were based on residency - where you lived at the time of playing (not your "Home" state). This allowed NSW to stack their team with Qlders who had moved to Sydney to play in the much more lucrative Sydney competition. NSW basically cheated.

    Then in 1980 state of origin replaced residency and Qlders could now play for Qld. It was like UFC116 where Brock Lesnar took a frightful beating off Shane Carwin in round 1. Round 2 Lesnar came out of his corner, smiled at Carwin and said "right, now I'm gunna get my licks in!".

    NSW didn't take kindly too Qld starting to win. Incidents like Les Boyd breaking Darryl Browman's jaw:



    Terry Fearnley instructing NSW players to "just fight":



    Mark Geyer being told he had immunity to do whatever he liked:



    NSW saying the first Qlder to say "Qlder" would get hit




    Tommy Raudonikis's tactic of starting a brawl when NSW were losing. Watch for Spud Carroll's cheap shot on Tony Hearn then Jamie Goddard ironing out Andrew Johns:



    NSW didn't like losing.

    In the 80s when Qld Played it was like William Wallace (Wally Lewis) riding out to face the evil English overloads (NSW):



    (Forget that William Wallace was wearing blue face paint, the kunce was colour blind).

    watched about 15 mins of it,will watch the rest at some stage if i remember lol,one thing that stood out was the use of the ball and speed of the hands from Queensland. Ole Lewis knew how to put a guy in a gap.

    All good Gerry. Just remember, the thing about Wally Lewis was he was a Lock Forward with blistering speed, turned Five-eight. He'd front on smash Steve Roach, Wayne Pearce, Pat Jarvis, body lock throw Noel Cleal. He was a precision long and short kicker, precision passer and a General directing Play, plus he could fight lol. I can't think of an Australian Sportman I watched in any sport (League, Union, Aussie Rules, Cricket etc) who was so good at his art.

    Just remember, when QLD play NSW it's similar to the Kiwis playing Australia (little brother Qld/Kiwis playing big brother NSW/Australia). Tell all your Mates, Qld are the good guys!
