QT readers love to back boys in Maroon

WITH the State of Origin decider taking place tomorrow, the QT tested the Maroon loyalty of our Facebook readers yesterday with a somewhat biased Origin quiz.

At the time of writing, of the 1000 plus votes, 88% said Queenslanders had the greatest rugby league team ever, with great sports - win, lose or draw and followers with more passion than Blues fans.

A whopping 95%, very insightfully, voted Blues players as whingers, cry babies and sooky bubbas.

Ninety-seven percent said watching the Maroons made them feel proud, "We have a team that never says die".

Advice to Paul Gallen from 92% of the voters: take a chill pill, watch the movie Liar, Liar and read Pinocchio.

Nate Miles is a hero who tackles and runs hard (but fair) and will do anything for Queensland, according to 91% of those who participated. But no one solely voted him as a hero.

Will Queensland make it eight-straight series in Sydney? The answer: Oath yeah. They'll do it for their coach (90%).

Check out the Queensland Times Facebook page tomorrow for our State of Origin meme-off. We'll be uploading a selection of photos for you to make memes from. The winning meme will run in the paper on Thursday.

 

LOVE the mighty Maroons? With the State of Origin decider just around the corner, it's time to test your Maroon loyalty with this quiz.
