After 36 hours of tiptoeing amid lapsed leases, old cookies, faulty DNS reroutes and a guy called Raj in Manila, I’m back, baby. Without a voice, thanks to laryngitis, but with a forum at least. Thanks everyone for your patience.
So let’s have some fun with the Origin players, where you have to devise some devious wordplay for any Queensland star (Group 1), any NSW star (Group 2), and any one of the debutantes (3). A prize of gladiatorial glory to the best trio, without formal votes needed.
Group 1: Greg Inglis, Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk, Johnathon Thurston, Cameron Smith, Mal Meninga
Group 2: Paul Gallen, Josh Morris, Robbie Farah, Luke Lewis, Greg Bird, Mitchell Pearce, Laurie Daley
Group 3: Nathan Merritt, Aaron Woods, Andrew Fifita, Chris McQueen, Daly Cherry-Evans, Josh Papalii
And may the best combo win – tonight, and in the next few days here.
