MUCH conjecture has been raised about Queensland following the two thrashings handed to them by New South Wales in games one and two of the series. Some have even gone overboard and said the Origin concept is 'dead', and Queensland won't be winning another Origin series anytime soon.

Forum Sevens: Coogee Dolphins- The Team, The Tragedy, The Tribute

FEBRUARY 2 was a day that will live in the hearts for all Australians and Coogee Dolphin fans alike. For those as lucky as I was, to witness such a passionate and heart-warming tribute for the Coogee Dolphins, I think you would agree that it was a moment that will always stay with you.

Round 18 preview

ORIGIN has again robbed of us one of the season's great highlights. The understrength Bulldogs play the very much under strength Broncos at Suncorp Stadium. Had this match been played outside the Origin series, a massive crowd would have been on hand to see two of the NRL's high intensity sides go head to head. I do realise Brisbane will be relying youngsters to get them home but the four Bulldogs players missing from tonight's game leave a gaping hole in their side, one which Wayne Bennett will capitalise on. Brisbane by 8.
