A sea of maroon is already packing out Caxton street, as Queenslanders make the pilgramage to Brisbane’s iconic Rugby League precinct, to watch their boys put on a clinic.

The 2022 Origin series is on the line at Suncorp Stadium tonight as the Blues and Maroons battle out in a River City decider.

History is on the side of the Maroons, given the track record that Queenslanders have with their backs against the wall, but with star half back Cameron Munster out with COVID – the team’s debut head coach Billy Slater will be feeling the nerves.

As the early knock-offs from working begin trickling out across the state, the furious armchair analysis is at fever pitch.

And the kitchen table version of NRL 360 is well underway in Betoota’s Flight Path District this afternoon, as a semi-retired Powers Bitter sales rep make the generous decision to throw in his two cents.

64-year-old Darcy Plymouth doesn’t often pipe up with his rugby league insights, but just hours out from an Origin Decider, he can’t resist.

The former prop for the premiership winning 1974 Betoota Dolphins side says tonight will be interesting.

“Yeah. If the Blues can ties this one up, it’s gonna be a real outlier” he reckons.

“Just quietly”

According to old Plymmy, those happy clappers from New South Wales have likely already succumbed to the mind games.

“Queensland have got them just where they want them” he says.

“They bled a few tries in game two. They’ve apparently lost two of their best players. They’ve got an inexperienced coach”

“Just the other day I read in The Sydney Morning Heckle about how this is the worst Queensland side they’ve picked in years. They are playing into our hands”

“What everyone is forgetting is that this game is taking place at a sold out Lang Park. And Queensland are the underdogs”

“The Blues don’t understand what they are walking into. They don’t have the remotest idea of what State Of Origin is all about”

“They don’t have any heart at all. They don’t want it enough. They are coming in on a full tummy. Which is ironic because they’re a bunch of gutless wonders”

The interview abruptly ended as Mr Pymouth’s seven glass of Dark’n’Stormy exploded in his hand.
