Letter to the Editor
Campbell Newman’s feigned “outrage” that the SoO game 1 was being played in Melbourne made me laugh. Not only is this something he has absolutely no control over as it is a deal between the NRL and the Victorian government in order to promote the game in Victoria, but Campbell Newman is a former Tasmanian and probably wouldn’t have the first idea of the rules of rugby league.
Unless one recalls the injustice that used to occur between the competitions of the two States before the “origin” concept was conceived you probably don’t understand the passion that Queensland actually has to beat NSW in this sport. As a Queenslander who revels in the Mighty Maroons beating our southern cousins and restoring Queensland pride, I will be happy to see yet another series win from our blokes.
