    AH, STATE of Origin. Toughest arena in sport. Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. Sorts the men from the boys. Apparently.

    If the bitching and moaning from the other side of the Queensland border is any indication, it has gone disturbingly soft.

    Please. Pass them the tissues. Now, wipe the tears . . .

    Yesterday, in the aftermath of the most dramatic Origin in years, Maroons players blubbered like never before.

    It was all because of the incident everyone was talking about from the dying minutes of their 28-16 loss to NSW at Suncorp Stadium. Blues prop Brett White wasn't cited for the right-hand that sent Queensland's Steve Price to Disneyland, but Trent Waterhouse contested his contrary conduct charge last night for diving in and escaped suspension.

    "They hurt one of our brothers and we wanted to hurt them back," said Maroons centre Justin Hodges - forthwith known as NSW Public Enemy No. 1. "We'll get them next year. It's going to be fiery."

    Much of their anger centred on Blues prop Justin Poore picking up Price by the collar after he was knocked out.

    Greg Inglis, said: "It was a dog act, it won't be forgotten."

    Cameron Smith added: "He (Price) could have ended up paralysed or, thinking in the worst terms, you're talking about death."

    Here's a suggestion: go down to your nearest hardware store, buy two bags of cement, harden up.

    When the Maroons started dishing out the threats after failing to complete a clean sweep, they clearly forgot about recent history. Specifically, they ignored halfback Johnathan Thurston kicking NSW winger David Williams in the face.

    Where were the wild-eyed NSW players seeking retribution then? Keeping it respectable at the other end of the field.

    Some might suggest that's got more "dog" in it that than two props going toe- to-toe before another rushed in and pounced on the protagonists.

    And, presumably, when Smith says he feared Price may have suffered a neck injury, he forgot about the finals last September while playing for Storm against the Broncos.

    Back then, he grabbed the head of Queensland "brother" Sam Thaiday and twisted it like the top of a stubbie. Hodges's petulant display as the minutes wound down summed up his man-child qualities.

    "We weren't going to win the game, so we just wanted to go up and hurt them," he said yesterday.

    That's a park footy mentality. During the game, he performed the classic throat-slitting gesture on several occasions and told the Blues to "watch your back".

    Sounds like someone's been watching too much Underbelly.

    Smith explained it away like this: "It showed with the way the boys reacted that we're Queenslanders."

    You bet.

    Who else but bloody Queensland?

    maybe they should play 2 more SOO this year.

    i can't believe what little cry babies the morons are being. All that ego must go to there head when they think that they are allowed to dish it and not take it. Should be an interesting melbourne dressing room with White and Inglis and Co.

    Mate against Mate, who would want it any other way?

    I love the fact NSW were going to do the exact same thing and kick it straight to Hodges. I wish we had gotten the penalty that would have been hilarious, Hodges probably would have forgotten about catching the ball and ran straight up the tunnel

      I don't know mate.  White was very quick to hide behind the Manly boys and the fastest Creagh ran all night was after he put a push in the back.  Okay, maybe he ran faster when he scored his two tries.  ;-)

    Queensland showing their true colours. How could anyone take anything Greg Inglis says seriously when it comes to State of Origin. He is a born and bred New South Welshman, so we all know how honourable and principled that dog is. He has improved the average IQ of both States by being a traitor.

    Hodges just continues to prove what a cat he is. No wonder he has been battling depression, I'd be depressed too if I had to live life with a personality like his.

    On Gibbs and Alexanders sports show last night on 2UE they did mention that Hodges had a chance to measure up to Watmough and they both went out of their way to say that the cat Hodges new better not to mix it with Choc.

    Ahhh, it was fantastic to watch and it’s what we the fans wanted out of SOO, a fiercely competed battle.

    Yep, I saw that. Watmough and Hodges had grabbed each other and there was some push and shove, Watmough was ready to smash him and had a semi-smile on his face, while Hodges looked like he was ****ting himself. Farking pussy.

    Would have liked to have seen Watmough up against Hodges, I'm sure Hodges would have put up a better fight than when Watmough took on his ex girlfriend.

    Hodges did the smart thing, the pussy thing, but the smart thing nonetheless. In the same position i would have done the same.

    Hodges and Inglis are quick to forget that in the past they have cried of spilt milk. Inglis everytime he gets touched and Hodges, well we remember he first couple of origins.

    He pushed him in the side, not the back so dont let a fact get in the way of your story, you never have. He ran most likely because he thought and rightfully so that the morons would hit him from behind.

    there was enough back in the push to say he pushed him in the back. And he did run. I was in histerics when he did it and rewound and replayed a few times

    Bring on 2 more origins- Best of 5.

    The Thursday Island/Fijian/Polar Bear/Tongan/Maori/NZ/Samoan/PNG/Bowraville Morons, sorry Maroons, won 4 series in a row and still sook and whinge.

    About time the halfback bashing Price got knocked the fugggg out!!! I just wish it was Hodges, Thurston or any Storm player instead.

    Good to see choc stay out of trouble and let his footy do the talkig. Poor Lockyer would be having nightmares of being used as a speedbump!
