    Does anyone know who pays for T-REX compensation bill while out injured because of state of origin. Surely Manly shouldn’t be paying for the rehab bills and match payments while he is out due to the fact he was playing for NSW.

    That is why I am not a real fan of SOO.

    Overall they are nothing games and the players run the risk of injury.

    Nothing game? It's the pinnacle of Rugby League.

    Would love for all our players to get selected in Origin. The risk of injury is more than offset by how much playing at that level improves them and they bring that back to the club.

    Origin = more ratings
    more ratings = bigger tv deal
    bigger tv deal = more for the clubs

    It's a rubbish sideshow that is only of any real interest to Queensland.

    I know there are others who post on here that live in Qld like me and can confirm the locals are truly bonkers over origin and the state of Qld in general. It seems many identify with being a Queenslander before being an Australian. It's a bit nuts up here.

    Yeah, I don't get that, I'm an Australian first and foremost. They should succeed from the Commonwealth, they would soon go broke without the GST revenue they get from NSW.
