On edge Queenslander’s prepare their trusted, “But we won eight in a row!” excuse.

Owning one game a piece in the Origin series, tonight’s decider has both sides on edge. If Queensland win it will be vindication of coach Kevin Walters somewhat unique coaching tactics. If New South Wales win it will be a sign that Queensland’s golden days are behind them, which is why northerners are already prepping their go to catchphrase if they lose – ‘But we won eight in a row!’

“But we won eight in a row!” said diehard Queensland fan, Johnno Emerald (28) in the mirror. “Sorry, just getting ready for work tomorrow in case we don’t win.”

“Well, if we don’t win, at least we won eight in a row,” said Maroons super fan, Tony ‘Alan Mal Darren Wally Johnathan’ Shearer (47) to his mate in Wagga, NSW, before the kick off.

‘But we won eight in a row’ typed Queenslander Bev Ann (56) into her phone ready to press send to her sister in Toukley, NSW, if things don’t go her way.

As we await the final score tonight, one thing is for sure, Queenslander’s are ready for anything – especially since they won eight in a row!
