State of Origami, Oregano or Origin @ Avalon RSL 23.5.2012  - best smiles of the week!

For our overseas readers; The State of Origin is actually a rugby league competition between NSW (the Blues) and QLD (the Maroons) that has been going on for eons (since 1908), is watched and enjoyed by many at home and in clubs, and has three games each season to decide that year's winners(best of three). QLD won the first game this week and the cheers at commencement of evening turned into subdued murmurings and calls about 'the Ref' being blind.  Win or lose each match is a great social occasion, played by the top athletes in this sport, for  the State of Origin Shield
