My opinion is it is great to be a QLD fan and this current side is great, but when you see some of these NSW sides what exactly have we to be proud of for beating them?
State of Origin is no longer a contest. QLD have better depth, quality and most importantly a more passionate about the concept than NSW. I agree that NSW selection and their continual chopping and changing of players over the past few years has not helped but in the end it's not like it really has mattered in the washup.
The only question I have is who is accounatable for NSW's performance? It's clearly not the selectors
Otherwise they would have been sacked 2 years ago.
