Feeling the blues in NSW

If you’re a fan of the NSW Blues, our condolences – but if you’re all about the Queensland Maroons, congrats… The Blues went down 10-38 during the first State of Origin game last night, made all the worse because they were playing on home turf at Accor Stadium. They also played a man down for most of the game after Joseph Suaalii was sent off early for a high tackle, which has seen him banned for a month. Reports say it’s the heaviest defeat the Blues have suffered in Sydney in more than 35 years – ouch… But the Maroons had a great night – fullback Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow was a standout after scoring a hat trick. Next up is game 2 at the MCG on 26 June. And while we’re on sports, Australia plays its first match against Oman in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup today from 10.30am if you’re on the east coast.
