Snoop-Poop’s State of Origin Game 2 Match Report …

Snoop-Poop’s Game 2 Match Report:

S ome major CROW has to be eaten this morning – QLD failed to turn up and play to their ability – at least the QLD team we all know and love.

NSW were magnificent and had several players who played well above their opponents.

As a one-eyed QLD supporter – I am humbled and express congratulations to the NSW team – Stuart can take credit – but I still don’t rate him a coach’s bootlace … I acknowledge QLD were outplayed across the paddock – not one QLD player played at a higher rating to the NSW squad.  

NSW stood up tonight and breathe life into the SOO series. But – and there are plenty of butt’s – all subjective I might add and all that any loyal QLD fan saw as the match unfolded –

  • In the 29th minute when Lewis leapt to catch the ball and scored the try – everybody was so excited for NSW – they never saw Hayne’s elbow to Yow Yes’s head to knock him out of the play – this happened a metre from where the try was scored … the review did not even consider the penalty – Yow Yea was entitled to hold his ground and if still in the play would have had some influence in what followed – what Hayne did was a foul and should be on report – also if you look at the kick – you will see several NSW players in front of the kicker who were within the 10 metres when the try was scored …
  • Late in 1st half – Pierce stripped the ball from Thiaday and the knock on was ruled against Thiaday – 10 metres for tHE QLD goal line – this happened in the Inglis goal line catch and then strip by a NSW player – Inglis ruled to have knocked on – scrum feed to NSW 2 metres from QLD goal line.
  • The Uate knock back initially caught by Inglis and then fumbled – was a knock on to NSW as Uate’s bat back went forward – again scrum feed to NSW 20m from QLD goal-line …
  • QLD penalised for hands on the ball – BIRD and INNIS and LEWIS had their hands on the ball all night and were never pinged …
  • The penalty to QLD in the first few minutes for NSW players not getting off the tackled player was not enforced from the 20th min – play the ball speed was slower in the last 60min then it was in the first 20 min – this initial 20 min period was when QLD dominated most – this is subjective as both sides play the game to slow down the play the ball …
  • Then there was the Gallen stiff-arm to Inglis’s head in back play when QLD were attacking the line that was completely missed …

These were just a few things picked up in running that I made notes of – I’m sure NSW fans have their own scorecard as well – but in NSW it was their turn to get the rub of the green so to speak …

The key to tonight’s game was Paul Gallen – he outplayed the QLD front row and this was a big difference – Q’ld’s TAYLOR off the bench had no impact – and several other QLD forwards were well below their best.  That may have been because of the NSW commitment and continued improvement and QLD’s over confidence – something that will need to be addressed for Game 3.

Soward came of age tonight and will be the NSW five-eight for many years – Hopoate had a brilliant debut – Hayne had no impact and YODA can kiss my ass on that score – Gasnier had a better game – Innis shut down Smith and it was notable that Smith scored his try shortly after Innis was replaced – can’t stand that maggot of a player – yet he can produce the niggle factor to put opposition off their game when playing behind a dominate forward pack …  Minachello made a big difference and so did Gidley when he came into the game  – Lewis made an impact and scored with his second touch when he came on late in the 1st half –

NSW deserved their win and if QLD don’t turn their performance around – they will be long odds to make it 6 series wins. Well done NSW … off to Game 3 we go and a good match hopefully awaits …

    Not enough CROW in my opinion.
    Poop Scoop you have to be a relative of Oddball because your lack of expertise is brought forward week after week. maybe if you did not come from the “negative” all the time and subsequently more gracious to the combatants week in week out, then you would have better understanding of the game. Talk about whinge whinge, do you ever stop! In your case being a QLD supporter is actually irrelevant, you do not deserve to support such a great team! Your ratings are “shite” and again illustrate your naivety.

    Please Scoop Poop Dip Shit or whatever your name is, try and get some semblance of understanding the game before making the overstated inaccuracies you repeatedly make!

    Hey there Yoda you germ of a worm …

    Liken the game to a Group 1 Horse race where all the favourites ran the worst race of their lives and every outsider beat them home – do you think there would be a Steward’s enquiry –

    Across the park – I don’t believe any QLD layer outplayed his opponent –

    the Matchups:

    1′s – Slater/Minachello – score – Slater 5 – Minachello 8 – masterstroke of a selection – moving Hayne back to fullback and picking a new winger was teh logical selection process – but Minchello proved he has plenty to offer …
    2′s – YowYea/Uate – score -YowYea -4 Uate – 8 – Uate probably the best winger in the game on his 2 SOO performances – YowYea’s defence still suspect under High ball – was elbowed bt Hayne in the Lewis try – may have had some impact on him after that …
    3′s – Neilsen/Hoparte – Neilsen -4 – Hoparte -7 – Neilsen had no quality ball and this was unusual for a QLD site – Hoparte had a brillint debut – QLD exposed in this area in Game 1- still a problem
    4′s – Inglis/Gasnier – Inglis – 6.5 – Gasnier – 7 – Gasnier played a big defensive game and kept Inglis quite – Inglis is still not 100% fit –
    5′s – Boyd/Hayne – both very quite games – both score 5′s
    6′s – Lockyer/Soward – Lockyer – 6 – Soward – 6.5 – Lockyer was well below best due to targeting by NSW players – especially in kicking game – Soward stands so deep on th 5th – his kicking game was much better –
    7′s – Thurston/Pierce – Thurston 6 – Pierce 6.5 – Thurstons quitest Origin game in a long time – Pierce stepped up and player a ball game – Thurston’s time with the ball in hand was his lowest ever …
    8′s – Harrison/Bird – another even score 6′s –
    9′s – Smith/Innis – Smith – 6.5 – Innis 7 – pains me to make this statement – but Innis played a blinder in the niggle stakes – would be the last man picked in any team I was selecting – purey because he is a mongrel player – nothing moral about his tactics – just a gutter maggot and gets under the skin of other players –
    10′s – Myles/Scott – Myles 5.5 – Scott -7 – Myles was way below his best – not an offload – Scott played big defensive game …
    11′s – Thiaday/Creagh – Thiaday 6 = Creagh 6.5 – Lockyer to Thiaday play was read all night – Thiaday is ther for his defensive workrate – as a ball carrier – not up to his club class but that is probably the Coach’s instructions – Creagh to improve again for game 3 …
    12′s – Scott/Mannah – Scott 6 – Mannah 6.5 – this is the area where NSW layed their platform – QLD front row each made 150+ metres in Game 1- – would have been lucky to be75 meters a piece – this is where NSW won the game in shutting down the QLD props …
    13′s – Cinoveciva/Gallen – Petro 6 – Gallen – 8.5 – Gallen best player on ground … still not up to this level – just played well above his ability – what’s teh bet that he takes weeks to recover ..
    14′s – Taylor/Merrin – Taylor no value in last night’s game – Mininga stuffed up –
    15′s – Parker/Watmough
    16′s – Cronck/Gidley
    17′s – Hannant/Lewis – – across the bench – NSW got better value by far – this has to be the coach’s mistake – whils QLD props were on the field in the first 20 min – QLD were dominate – then when replacements entered the game – NSW never looked back – tactical error by maroons …

    Tell me YODA – if Hayne gets dropped because he had no impact in the game – will you support QLD in Game 3 … tosser …

    Oh Poor Pooper, your credability gets even worse in your judgement of Gallen, I know he has not been the most likable of player but for you to say he wont recover after being the player of the match in the NZ Test, NSW best player game 1 and 2 and you say “he’s not up to it”. Sorry Scoopy DipShit but “YOUR NOT UP TO IT’ get a real job will yah and tell that Oddball prick that he should send you back to head “tiddlywinks” commentator, which means you and he can converse with 5 year olds on the finer points of the game.

    Wakey Wakey hands off snakey…………Wanker

    Hey again YODA- you jerky turkey –

    Never has your JIBBER JABBER been so jibberish – you claim to be a wantabe Alan SHORE – I say you’re a Denny CRANE – and a similar old fool –

    Your MOSES like wilderness walk in the land of the PARRAMATTA wilderness – has made you senile and someone whose opinion counts for squat – as MOSES led his people – 40 odd years as I recall – you lament the fact that having moved from Sydney to claim a better lifestyle in QLD some 30 odd years ago – you should have also ditched the lost tribe called PARRAMATTA – You rave about HAYNE as your Parramatta saviour even massiah – he is but the torment you jibber jabber about –

    If you had of embraced QLD fully when you came from NSW – you would have won several Premierships since and not be the twisted and tormented jibber jabber who dribbles his jibes over a back fence …

    As a eminent reporter – I take the hate mail as well as the fan mail – I expect never to be agreed with 100% – if I was then perhaps I should put my hand up to be PM –
