Postcards from Queensland

THEY say a picture tells a thousand words. Why then am I so mad as to try and describe the passion held for State of Origin by the Queenslander in 750 words or less?

Doin' it for my mate

LOOK at Parramatta this year and what becomes surprisingly evident is the real sense of loyalty and mateship emerging from a team that is quietly moving up the ladder. Turn the pages back eighteen months ago and that definitely wasn?t the case. Players were unhappy, unhappy enough to leave and quit the NRL.

Round 15 Preview - Post Origin sharks circling?

WHAT a week of footy it?s been! After last week?s round of uncertainty the premiership table is slowing taking shape amongst the mid-season grind. Brisbane are looking fantastic and have created a 4-point buffer to second position during what is traditionally their most difficult time. Last week was a men sorting the boys out exercise, with Manly getting smashed by Souths and Parra belting Newcastle. The Eels are now firming as contenders while the Cowboys took some stick from the Dragons, who look to be the roughie of the comp. And in a dramatic twist, Cronulla appear to be spiralling out of contention with three straight losses and another suspension to Stevens.
