State Of Origin - Game 1

The State of Origin is an annual best-of-3-game series of Rugby League between Queensland (the Maroons) and New South Wales (the Blues). Last night was game 1, played in Sydney, the capital of New South Wales. Queensland won 28-24.
The competition is a very big deal in these two rival states. People go nuts. And woe betide you if you happen to have worn the wrong colour to work that day.
I suppose the build-up is much like (proper) football except the players have bigger necks and more fun off the field.

'bigger necks' .. chuckle ... I am not a follower of any football mainly because of what they do off the field.

Good shot. You must be happy Queensland won.
Sydney - City and Suburbs

I guess you'll be up at all sorts of hours watching football from South Africa then? :-)

Jim - it is happiness in its mildest form. To be honest, my folks called me on Skype half way through the match and I didn't think twice about missing the rest of the game.
Trevor - Yes! Bring it on!
