NSW still has the biggest grub in the NRL. Andrew Fifita. There is no bigger Grub, Cat, Lowie I have ever seen. The hatred I have for this mutant has no bounds.

If the topic is about NSW walking off then to be quite honest it was pretty pathetic. It doesn't matter what QLD'ers did previously. It doesn't matter if they hate Cam Smith. It showed zero class.
It reflects badly on the players, the coach and the state. Daley, Gallen and the rest should hang their heads in shame. A wonderful spectacle reduced to school yard immaturity.

People on here saying that QLD aren't used to losing a game, well NSW should be used to losing a series and by now should have learned the gracious way to behave in this situation. It was embarrassing.
Similar thing happened a few yrs ago when Matt King had a sulk and walked off without shaking hands cos he said he was sick of losing. Low class. Contrast that with something i saw in the AFL around about the same time. I was watching a Richmond v Essondon game, and there was only a point in it, and Matthew Richardson (Richmond Captain) was denied an obvious free kick right at the end that would have won the game. When the siren went and they lost he threw his mouthguard down in disgust and let out some expletives. At that exact moment a Bombers player held out his hand and Richardson's demenour did a complete a 360 and he shook his hand and said good game.

I think it stems from Gallen. The guy is a complete and utter sook. NSW can only improve without that drug cheat.

I don't think Fifita is a grub.
He fits more into the 'idiot' category.

Why is that sometimes the best footballers embarrass themselves ?

Absolute footballer, could have accepted defeat gracefully instead of being a whinger

Thaiday firmly has the the top grub position in his hand,
Closely followed by Nate miles, both Major grubs,
Thankfully we probably seen the last of both of them , if their performances on Wed night are any indication

In one way it will be a shame to see them dropped, but by next year they will never find a jumper that will cover Thiadays gut.

Let's not forget how humble and gracious Qld were when they had a rare loss at Suncorp a few years back. Around the time that "3rd man in Thaiday" was at his peak. Justin "the grub " Hodges with the throat slitting gestures, and just for good measure when all hope was lost and they couldn't win, Instead of taking a tap and tackle, Lockyer resorted to the up and under where they all bolted through and tried to maime Kurt Gidley.

Gracious and humble indeed.

As for Cam Smith, he is a great leader, there's no doubt about it. Certainly stretches the rules extremely well

Although what ever you think of Smith he is a champion player so I guess he can say what he wants, its not like he has to please anyone
To be honest SC, i think of him more along the lines of a smart grubby player, that hides his dirty tactics on the field very well most of the time. The team around him in Melbourne, Origin and the Australian side, make him look better then he really is imo.
The media's love affair and build up of him as a god like figure has alot to answer for.
Add hypocrite to that list as well.
Sorry TM but it is a split hair between Thurston and Smith as to who is the best player currently in Rugby League

And probably a distance to the next player

Like Smith or hate him he is still a great player

Ask Fade To Black , probably one of Smith's biggest haters on the Forum , but he would be the first bloke he picks in his Fantasy League team and makes him (C) to boot
Smith is a great player but IMHO Thurston is well ahead of him. If I had to pick one player to build a team around it'd be JT everytime.
Same Yossarian. Thurston for me too. Not only is he a great player, he has appeal as well. ;)

Lol, funny that. Maybe it's because he hardly gets tackled, as he quickly passes the ball before they get to him.

Have to agree. No matter how dirty QLD are they only ever do that kind of stuff on the field, where things like that are more scewed from the public vision. To send a message like at a presentation as Gallen and the team did was embarrassing.. Played right into their hands and now we look like the bad guys. Should've saved that emotion for next years series..

What about changing state of origin to a 5 game series? The first team to 3 wins the series and no further games are played once the series is won. That way the NRL still get a minimum of 3 origin games maximum of 5, more product, can take a game to more venues, no dead rubbers and the shield is lifted when the series is won.

What do you guys think? Would probably need to be moved to the end of the season though

It screws with the comp too much
