Queenslanders are all a bit quiet this morning, no?

State of Origin Game 1: NSW demolishes Queensland

NSW has pulled off a stunning 50-6 demolition of Queensland in Townsville to kick off the hotly-anticipated 2021 Origin series.

"The series opener kicked off at Queensland's Country Bank Stadium and it was the Blues that dominated early to take a 20-6 lead at halftime.

NSW put Queensland to the sword in a first half demolition job — and it continued early in the second half."

Well deserved win with some first time team selections by the blues that have unearthed great depth for the remainder of the series. Will wounded pride be enough for Qld to take it to a decider in Sydney.

No, a victim of bad timing. I was flying from Kandahar back to Bagram.

What part of Queensland are you from?

PS: I didn't vote in the US election or test Covid +ve either.

Certainly out of the blocks fast and they kept the pressure on. One to watch on 27th.

Sorry you missed it. It was a great game and certainly bodes well for the next one.
Queensland is definitely not my state. Born in the sky blue city and grew up in the southern suburbs on the coast.
Will be looking for a 3 blot series win.

I have to admit Queensland has a special place in my black heart as I spent most of my Australian work time there.

I was reading in other news that they were scraping ice off the windshields in Blackall yesterday morning.

Further north, humble pie was the order of the day at bakeries in Townsville.

Surprised the Blackall locals had any energy left for that after peddling their dynamos to keep the olde, black en white, HMV TV going through the game.
