Ok I am a NSW fan. I go for them and hey being a Wests Tigers fan it has trained me to barrack for the underdog.
The local Gym was showing an old State of origin match. I couldn’t pick which one, it had Allan Langer, Mal Maninga, Wally, etc. I think Laurie Daily was 5/8 and you could tell it was from the 89-91 era.
Man Mark Geyer was just awful. He would start scrapping over nothing regularly, everyone else was playing ball, he just wanted to throw punches. He was tackling a winger or Center and king hit the guy hard. Then the biff came and he was separated behind a few in the NSW pack. It was one of the dirtiest moves I have seen in Rugby league ever. The guy he hit had his arms pinned in a tackle. If this is the spirit of Origin count me out, it was a coward punch if I ever saw one.
I only know it was Geyer because the Jersey said Geyer. I know his brother played too, but I am pretty sure it’s the mmm Mark.
Over this guy entirely.
