Dugan and Ferguson



  • Were up to their old habits apparently the Friday night prior to the last state of origin game. What tossers these guys are if true. Doesn’t say much for L Daley and his team either, sooner I see the back of the wig merchant the better.



  • Blame many of the clubs for this….Some clubs have a win at all costs mentality, cheating the salary cap, different rules for their star players…its a win at all costs mentality.

    I can name them, Dogs, Parra, Chooks, Brisbane, Souths, Sharks, Titans…
    The Raiders took a stance against players who can’t toe the line and if all clubs did that too the game would be in much better shape…and NSW would win a series.

    I think Laurie is probably a great bloke and was a fantastic player. Not so sure about his man management skills especially at this level. Those two knuckle-heads (Dugan & Ferguson) are the perfect example of why NSW can’t seem to get it right.

    Whilst Paul Kent is a bit of a flog, his article about the NSW culture seems to be on the money: http://www.news.com.au/sport/nsw-state-of-origin-loss-is-systematic-of-a-culture-gone-wrong/news-story/d843934677142194cf6d8f6097332cb7



  • Were they told they couldn’t have a beer? Were they drunk?
    No one so far has said they were told not to go - only that they were seen at a pub.
    5 days before the game … what a bunch on nancy boys, get over it!



  • It was the Friday, so five days before. Nothing to get too excited about I think. They certainly weren’t the worst in the Blues. At the end of the day they were beaten by a terrific Queensland team…again



  • I think it says more about their attitude…. You’re in camp for a reason, the lead up is as important as game day itself.

    This is poor in terms of team culture however the story emerging about Daley, Klemmer and Fifita is far worse.

    Was going to start Klemmer with Fifita coming off the bench…Fifita apparently convinced Daley otherwise…

    Lunatics running the asylum…

    There are rumours that are starting to gain credibility that the NSW coaching staff decided to counteract the QLD forwards adrenalined packed start to game 3 by starting with Klemmer instead of Fifita. The idea was Klemmer would fight fire with fire and as the QLD forwards tired, Fifita would come on and run amok ala game 1. Daley told both players at training and Fifita threw such a tantrum that Daley withdrew the offer to Klemmer and started with Fifita…who got absolutely owned.

    This attitude is why you have won 1 series in the past 12 years.



  • I hate that the media start talking about origin at about round 3 of the comp, and now they want to drag it out after origin has finished.
    I love origin but all the talk around it so boring.



  • Why hasn’t anyone said the bloody obvious yet.

    KEEP DUGAN AND FERGUSON APART!

    Yes they went for a few beers… Like they have in the past… like they have EVERY TIME they meet up.

    Jeez.

    IMHO, choose Jennings in the center and put Hayne on the wing. Clearly Hayne was having fitness problems Game 1. Center for origin is not for him, no I don’t care how close he is to the ball. Put him on the wing where the NFL/RL skills he has been doing may come to the fore.

    But whatever you do. Don’t choose Ferguson and Dugan in the same team.



  • It just shows how gutless Laurie is as a person with the klemmer faffita thing. There was early signs that Mr Daley couldn’t stand the heat. Go back to when he was a member of Gus’ team back in idk when, but the chair incident. Sums him up really.
