Tonight it was the decider. Last year Queensland won its sixth State of Origin series. This year Queensland won the first game and NSW won the second game. I’ve previously written that I really hope for a good close game and truth be told, as much as I wanted Queensland to win, NSW winning would mean that Rugby League is the winner. We need to have two strong origin sides not a lopsided competition. We need to have a game that kids can remain excited about, after all, rugby league is the greatest winter sport of all. Much more enjoyable than soccer and Aussie rules and for a spectator superior than Rugby Union. I write these things not wanting to upset readers. I just find so much satisfaction in watching a good game of rugby league.
In the end the result was right and the game was one of the most exciting nail biting games of rugby league we’ve seen. Queensland defeated NSW 21 to 20 in a very tight match.
For dinner tonight I was partially inspired by recent episodes featuring dude food. I knew I needed some vegetation so there is some AUavocado. Otherwise it was all chicken. Chicken wings coated in oil, honey and spike.
So I put the wings into a fry pan and then put them into a hot oven (200 °C) for 30 minutes.
I could have just eaten the chicken but my conscious got the better of me so I added some avocado as an after thought. It’s also green 🙂
During the game it was great watching my Twitter timeline. It was fantastic seeing Lisa Curry tweeting for Queensland. I recall watching her swim when she was a school girl and I was swimming at school. She is a fantastic Queenslander.
