    Aus Demographics

    Perhaps not thread worthy but...

    I just watched the u20 Origin game and, while both teams were mixed to an extent, NSW appeared predominately white and Queensland mainly islander. Was this just a vagary of rugby selection or are there differences in the demographics of the States?

    Edit - not related to the answer but NSW won 36 - 12

    queensland stole all the good players so NSW were left with only the whiteys
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    There's way more islanders in Queensland because they were used as cheap labour to pick various fruits and such.

    This pretty much.

    Might just be because of talent coming through. NSW has it's fair share of Islanders, and in any case a disproportionate amount of Islanders play footy.

    There's a lot of islanders that play rugby league. Also, Queensland has a very high indigenous population (compared to other states). Also, NSW has an inherent history of racism.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    That is a very fair point that can also be a part of the demographic question - I had not factored in indigenous players into the equation.

    Yep, the Queensland history of blackbirding labourers was a real red letter time for egalitarianism.

    Judging the differences after watching 17 footballers is not the best way to do it. For starters, islanders are genuinely bigger blokes in that 18-20 year old range so they are more likely to gain selection if they have the skills there too.

    Anyway NSW had Toutai, Tanginoa, Paulo to name a few islanders.

    Anthony Mundine could have played 30 Origins for NSW and was better than Daley and Fittler if he wasn't black just ask Anthony Mundine.

    'Queenslander' is not a race. It's a verbal tic often heard in severely ******** rugby league followers.
