  1. Billy Slater try is my favourite Origin moment.

  2. jan courtin says

    The ref doing his school master act, is pretty good “Don’t talk to me, just go! Just go!”, but I agree with Dave, on this particular video, the Bill Slater effort was amazing.
    Go you Queenslanders!

  3. Deborah Kerr – the King and I. Those days will never be bettered.
    Pity tonight’s crap is Ross v Roos.

  4. John Kennedy Jnr on the Winners Director’s Cut. Awesome. Genius player who always sells himself short.

    Go tIges!

  5. All is good with the world this morning.
