Qld want eligibility rules "cleaned up" after finding one town in the world that's "not in Qld".


Shock waves are reverberating through the tectonic plates of the 'north' when after years of deciding everywhere is in Qld and simply smugly smiling about any suggestion otherwise, one player has been nominated for the nsw blues that Qld actually wanted.

"It's unfair, it's unqueenslandian!" said head number one when asked about the unjustice of it all.

"Too right," said head number two. "what do we have to do to get some fairness with selections? It's obviously a nsw conspiracy!"

"Yeah..it's crap," agreed their cousin/wife.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Queensland Rugby League has called for an urgent overhaul of Origin’s controversial eligibility rules following revelations they helped write a letter to the NRL for Keary to be declared a Maroon.

Keary is as Ipswich as Allan Langer and Kevin Walters, but Origin’s eligibility laws are so poorly constructed the Queensland-born playmaker is poised to make his debut for NSW in the series opener at Adelaide Oval this Wednesday night.

Not having a crack at anyone's opinion here, but those picking Keary is that on form or reputation? Surely if picked on form the 5/8 has to be Wighton or Walker.

Agree. I'd have Walker at 5/8 and Wighton in the centres.

Seems our injury curse continues!

Blues news: Jake Trbojevic fails to complete training, has right foot/ankle on ice.

Also interesting to see the NRL has scrapped the national anthem for origin this year.

Something about Walker tells me he's not up to that level. To me it's got a similar vibe to when Merritt was picked. Souths fans bitched and moaned until they finally relented and picked him, then Inglis gave him an Origin 101 lesson. Walker just gives me the same vibe in that he'll struggle to take the next step.

Players from both states have agreed to 1.5 M pay cut for this year's series

Match fees will be cut from $30,000 to $10,000. Those players cut from the squad and not featuring in any games will receive $2000 for every week in camp.

Ridiculous, it is not an international game after all.
The Reds should sing 'That's in Queensland' and the Blues (obviously) should sing 'Blue (da ba dee da ba da) Yo listen up, here's the story
Even still, I think most big sporting events in countries you will find their anthem is sung
