Since I was at the Gomez concert on Wednesday night, I had Bender tape the State of Origin for me. Even though Monkey had spoiled it somewhat (I knew the Blues won), I was still keen to watch the game – so last night, I was in front of the couch, with a beer in hand.
Now, I’ve never thought much of Anthony Minichiello. Sure, I’ll admit he is a strong player, but I’ve always thought he plays dirty. And when he held back Matt Sing from scoring a certain try, that just tipped the scales for me. The ref didn’t even put him into the sin bin! What a joke! Down with Minichiello!
But to be fair, the game was owned by the Blues. *curses NSW*. Clearly Queensland needs to get more clubs up here, because currently there’s a huge lack of players from which they can pull talent. Also, given that half of the Queensland team is made up of Broncos players, our local team suffers greatly for the weeks surrounding origin matches by not having their representative players. Hopefully they’ll be back on board for tonight’s game against St George!
