Origin players get bonuses
The National Rugby League has meted out bonuses totalling more than $100,000 to this year's State of Origin players.
The NRL has announced Queensland and NSW players will receive a bonus of $1000 per man, per game following a meeting of the partnership executive committee in Sydney.
It means the likes of Andrew Johns and Gorden Tallis will receive an extra $3,000 for taking part in this year's Origin series, which broke attendance records and attracted huge television ratings.
