The National, Wednesday July 24th, 2013
AS a Blues fan, I am questioning the criteria used to select the players for the Blues and the Maroons.
After eight consecutive defeats of the Blues, I have never seen the Blues matching the fire or patriotism that the Maroons squad have shown year in and year out.
Without intending to be offensive, I am of the opinion that the Blues players are selected on their performances and not on where they come from.
I believe the Indigenous versus The Rest series was developed to consolidate this mindset.
This series will overtake State of Origin in the next 10 years.
