Bennett doesn't know how Tallis
will handle Origin I

Queensland coach Wayne Bennett believes Gorden Tallis's fragile temperament will be seriously tested in tomorrow night's emotion-charged State of Origin rugby league opener in Brisbane.

Tallis appears to have resolved his long-running feud with Origin referee Bill Harrigan. But Bennett doesdn't know whether his captain's character will stand up to the heat of a sell-out crowd at Suncorp Stadium.

He says Tallis has been well behaved this year but has a tendency to wear his heart on his sleeve, which sometimes gets him in trouble.
