last time Melbourne played North Queensland both sides’ State of Origin stars were unavailable as they bunkered down in Queensland camp for Origin II. But they still managed to make life interesting by wagering breakfast on the clash at AAMI Park. The four Cowboys in the Maroons team had to cough up when dubbed a clone, sealed the two points for Melbourne with a golden- point field goal. Just a couple of weeks ago Melbourne and North Queensland’s Origin stars were having beers together in the Suncorp Stadium sheds, celebrating a seriesdeciding win in game three. That friendship will be put on hold for 80 minutes tonight as the Cowboys try to keep their top four hopes alive.
