ROURGIGBINY L2EAGUE: STATE OF
Sport 7.30pm, Nine
Game one in Melbourne pretty much couldn’t get any worse for the Blues. Ricky Stuart’s men were mistaken for Kiwis by the Victorian sports minister, who thought it was Queensland versus New Zealand, captain Paul Gallen was called Paul Callen and marquee player Todd Carney was called David in the press. After a brawl and a sin-binning, NSW’s loss was sealed with a dodgy try ruling by the video ref. Ouch. Here’s hoping the Blues on home turf tonight at ANZ Stadium in Sydney can prevent a seventh-straight series loss.
