State of Origin Game Two Final Score: QLD 24 def NSW 14. Queensland claim record 4th straight State of Origin Series win!

DISGRACEFUL! Origin Football reaches new low.
QUEENSLAND have defeated NEW SOUTH WALES 24-14 in Game TWO - to claim a 4th successive State of Origin Series win! Congratulations to the Maroons - simply a better side than the tripe NSW keep putting on the field the last few years. Man of the Match was Sam Thaiday - still dumbfounded as to how - on a night when no Queenslander really shone above the rest and only two New South Welshmen stood up to be counted. QUEENSLAND 24 (G Inglis, I Folau, D Lockyer, C Smith tries; J Thurston 4/4 Goals) defeated NEW SOUTH WALES 14 (J Hayne 2, D Williams tries; K Gidley 1/3 Goals) @ ANZ STADIUM SYDNEY JUNE 24 2009

The first try to Inglis put the writing on the wall for NSW with its Kleenex Tissue Softness

To get a full Origin Two Video Review check back on THURSDAY 25 JUNE on the front page. The question that has to be asked is how can Rugby League be considered to be 'better than ever' when this year's State of Origin has produced two of the most abysmal games of football seen in memory?
The biff between Poore and Crocker was the highlight of the night... by a stretch.
I will be exploring that and focus especially on how a mediocre competition has finally caught up with representative football's 'elite standard' and what we now see is pathetic unimaginative football at the game's highest level. Again full credit to Queensland for their achievement but as I'll discuss tomorrow - the product and players NSW are putting on the field - should leave no doubt as to which state has the classiest talent and can cover over the falling standard of footballer currently being produced by the modern game.

Jarryd Hayne was all on his own carrying the Blues in this disgraceful Origin encounter. Although Anthony Watmough at least tried hard to make Queensland know they were in a contest. VIDEO REVIEW COMING THURSDAY 25 JUNE
