State of Origin 8th July 2015

The Biggest Sporting Match on East Australia is going on! Queensland vs. NSW (go Queensland)… getting into the spirit now I’m a resident.

The State of Origin is a football match between two states… a very violent Rugby match. The mascot for QLD is the Cane Toad.

Everywhere I turn is a sea of Maroon Jerseys (QLD) with the odd few Blue Jerseys (NSW) floating about. The atmosphere is calm (complete opposite to English Football Fans on Match Day).

I noticed around the city Pop Up Shops with both team’s jerseys for sale…. They love it here and get very patriotic!

Tonights match is a very important one. QLD have won 8 years consectively until last year NSW won…. QLD want it back and I certainly hope they do! (Not biased at all with all my aussie mates I have met here are all from QLD).

The bar at the hostel are also very patriotic… see the photo!

Let the game begin!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
