    I thought we looked really disjointed in attack. Every time we went wide, the support players seemed to overrun the guy in possession (usually Thurston). Anyway, NSW will derive a lot of confidence from finally winning a tight game. Their defence in particular was mighty.

    There's no real continuum in Origin though - each game is an island unto itself, a clean sheet if you will. You have to go out there and earn it all over again.

    Yeah I agree, I think we were in a similar situation last year and were 20-0 behind after about 20 minutes in the third game. I think we've played a lot more consistently this year, how we were even close in the first game last year is still a mystery. Still, anything could happen in Game 3.

    I'm hoping QLD go with Barba at fullback. Inglis would be the worst option from NSW's point of view. I'd say it'll be the latter.

    just got to see half of the nrl on fox recap last night and one thing I noticed was when cronk came back on and made that tackle on b.stewart in our in goal, inglis was actually leading the chase by a good 10m and was beaten by 20m by cronk. he had one of his lazy efforts.

    so Inglis at fb could be devastating, but could also be quite lazy. Has the added disadvantage of not having the club combination with smith and cronk.

    Do you really think Inglis will be worried about not having a combination with his ex-Storm, current QLD and current Australian halfback and hooker. Very unlikely mate.

    Dismiss Inglis at your peril.

    Yeah of course it will be back in the rack with Slater not playing.

    A new play will emerge though called the STI TRY - Smith, Thurston, Inglis TRY!! Not to be confused with St George Illawarra who are NSW like in attacking ability.

    QLD by 14.

    Going on The Courier Mail definition of what constitutes poor attacking ability QLD were NSW-like in attacking ability in the 2nd game. Two tries off kicks and not much else.

    Reckon Inglis will be chosen fullback though and he'll go better than he has been at centre. Has more room to move, and I reckon he tends to go missing at times when he's playing in the centres. Until he pops up for the match-winning try that is, I think 'STI Try' would be an appropriate name for it too - start off as an itch deep in your own territory and then spreads right across the playing area.

    Lol. Not much point Inglis matching it with Cronk if Stewart gets away from Cronk. He was holding up to make sure he was there if Cronk missed.


    BTW..Souths looked really good tonight. How bad were the Eels though?

    Parra went back to what they were four weeks ago. We signed the wrong half back from Souths.

    Rabbits have a fantastic side if they ever put it together for 80. Massive, mobile forwards, decent halves and rapid backs with Inglis playing in his most dangerous spot.

    And a 40-0 drubbing at the hands of younger, stronger, faster, fitter and better looking brother (emphasis on better looking) this weekend isn't going to help either.
