Terrific to see NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian in the spirit of things

Here’s everything you need to know about Game I

Although I am sceptical of the kick-off time. All of SMH experts have their say on the man of the match, first try scorer and the outcome. You will all be stunned to know that NSW are favourites for this one as well. Are they ever not favourites?

Origin I has landed

It’s here. I’m here. You’re here. Let’s get this happening. The Origin opener is upon us from tropical Townsville, I’m here to take you through all the action, plus we have our gun league reporter Michael Chammas on hand to take your questions throughout the night and after the game. Instead of yelling at people on Twitter, why not yell at him? It’s terrific fun.

Really keen for this game, slightly terrified of what the officiating might be like but all things being equal, I like the match up. I’m a Queenslander, so am duly tipping them by somewhere between 40 and 60, but it might end up being a fraction closer than that. Welcome aboard.
