Well, while I was pretty bummed to see the Blues go down again in Origin last night, I thought at least they put up a good fight, and overall, I thought the team had been pretty well-picked. Great to see Robbie Farah get another shot at last, and he was really solid, so hopefully that'll mean he's in the side for the next few years. Although you never can tell- another series loss will inevitably bring a completely new team next year. Because that tactic is working so well..
On a side note, the reason I haven't mentioned Origin at all before now is because it once again painfully coincides with Bible Study, and knowing I'd miss most of the game, I wanted to lessen the pain by not talking about it too much. Needless to say though, I was out of BS like a shot, and sped home to catch the majority of the second half.
Was Inglis' final try really a try? Hmmm. Dunno about that one. But still, beaten reasonably fair and square. So, congrats to you Queenslanders, and hopefully the next game will go our way, to make game three count.
And to pre-empt your suggestions, yes I did suggest the group watching the game together (but have found myself in a group of the only ten men in the Shire who don't like football. Come on!), and no, we don't own one of those new-fangled machines that lets you record stuff off the tele (new-fangled meaning anything invented in the past three decades).
