    Bloody wet track and freezing cold - not good for our giants but the QLD Black-line oh I mean back-line will prevail!

    Dummy half runs in the second half to secure a late victory as usual!

    NSW will be ahead 16-12 with five minutes to go. On tackle five Hayne has a brain snap and goes for a field goal thinking that it will put the game out of reach. The attempt is successful, but it only puts them ahead by 5 instead of the 7 he was thinking.

    In the 78th minute GI nails an intercept and starts his length of the field run with Locky in support. Bird was the one to throw the offending pass, and to his credit he does a gallant job of chasing them down. GI is a little dusty to start with, and then trips up slightly which gives Bird a chance to get a hand on him, but GI gets the pass away to Locky on the inside.

    Bird turns his attention to Locky, but he just can't get there and Locky goes in to score right on the sideline. Out of frustration, Bird then comes in for a late tackle on Locky, followed by a fit of facial attention. The inevitable happens and it's a all-in-brawl which lasts until the hooter sounds.

    It's all fun and games, and the referees don't penalise anyone. With full time already having passed and the scores at 17-16 to NSW, attention turns to Thurston who is left to kick the winning goal.

    Thurston removes his head gear and turns to look at the vocal NSW crowd. He turns back to the sticks, then sends the ball on its banana-like trajectory towards victory. It looks like he hasn't put enough turn on it, but all eyes follow the ball as it keeps turning and turning and... straight over the black dot.

    Qld win 18-17. Job done.

    What a great story "one"! :D

    You have missed your true vocation - I must ask you to write some content for websites. Ha ha!

    I notice only one "cockroach" has dared enter the fray (in this thread). There should be more. ;)

    I mean you've got home ground advantage; you've had the refs changed because you didn't like
    the original ones; and it's pissing down and freezing. Odds are stacked against us valiant Queenslanders.

    Thanks Ned! It started as a brief comment about Qld winning in the final moments of the game and it just grew from there.

    On a serious note though, and getting back to your comment about content, it certainly helps to have a bit of writing flair when developing websites. I enjoy writing, and I think it shows in my websites. My sites end up with more content, and content that visitors are more likely to stick around and read rather than hitting the back button or closing the tab. Hopefully when they finish reading they click on an advert.

    I'm trying to bring the two together with some sort of link between King Wally and content being king, but I've got nothing... :)

    I understand it is all your fault that QLD lost Timmy.

    Apparently Ricky Stuart used your post (and image) as extra motivation.

    I'm therefore considering imposing a 1 minute ban on you.
