State of Origin Fever – PNG pick their favourite colours

The first game of the National Rugby League State of Origin commenced yesterday night, May 26, 2004, with the ‘Blues’ New South Wales beating the Queenslanders ‘Maroons’ 9 – 8 points.

So its Blue..all right.. we can see that

In Australia, the preparations for the ever popular NRL Origin game started on the early hours of Wednesday morning as telecast on the Today’s Show on Channel 9.

In our beautiful country, Papua New Guinea, pictures were stuck on the front of the cars, and some people even started betting on which team was going to be the winner of the game.

These are the common activities whenever the Origin happens though yesterday not many were in celebration mood.

A maroon supporter (spiderman) looks on as Lady Blue gets her face painted.

The most common treat for the day was the face painting.

Almost each street corner was crowded with men, women and children who tried to get their face painted and the artists holding paint and brush.

Just see what it says here...State of Origin Face Painting. A young lad with his face painted displayed several designs for face painting

A visit to Boroko, at Tabari Place showed just how passionate these people were about the State of Origin.

Even this small boy couldn't resist having his face painted.

It cost 50t to get a face painted and those who held their paint and brush in hand were happy their talent was not wasted.

Some even to the point of getting their hair painted

So the Blues won in the clean and swift match last night, congratulations to the many supporters out there, as for the disappointed maroon supporters, “it’s not over and see you in the next Origin match.”

Ends.


So you picked your Origin colour? I'll simply go for Prince of Queensland Maroon's (7) thats right. My tip is that he will get the "Man of the Match", says young Tommy here. Can't argue much...last night he was just so AMAZING!! ...Arrgh..arrgh..in the Origin match of course.
