    For the Aussie's on C'Fans, which of you get into State of Origin? I personally love it. The passion and the quality of rugby league on show is something to admire and this game gets bigger and bigger every year.

    For those that have no idea what I am talking about - Tonight is game 1 of a best of 3 series between the best New South Wales (Blues) and Queensland (Maroons) (two east coast Australian states) rugby league players. If you have watched rugby league before this game is as skilled, rough and tough as a regular match, but then multiply that by 1000! Both states get right into it and it dominates the media for a good week. The rivalry is massive (think Celtics v Lakers, Yankees v Red Sox, UNC v Duke, Clutch vs LOF etc. etc.).

    If you have any interest in the game of Rugby League, even the slightest, I suggest you find a stream and view this game! Here are a few highlights from years prior!

    Its an AWESOME spectacle! QLD have currently won an unprecedented 7 years series in row, but I have a funny feeling its NSW's year! Who you supporting!?

    Go the BLUES!!!

    QLD still have too strong a side. They are far more consistent than the Blues when it comes to their sides.

    But yeah, NSW eventually have to win one right? :D
