Ori­gin series here

Weekend Herald - - Viewpoints -

While it is great that New Zealan­ders fol­low the an­nual State of Ori­gin series in Aus­tralia with such fer­vour, it is also rather dis­ap­point­ing that the NZRL don’t ap­pear to sup­port the game here to the ex­tent of in­sti­gat­ing an Is­land of Ori­gin be­tween the north and south. Surely there are enough clubs in each is­land with enough in­ter­est and play­ers will­ing to be in­volved in such a com­pe­ti­tion. Don’t say it can’t be done, use the All Blacks as the tem­plate.
