Blues skipper Boyd Cordner was a kid watching from the couch last time NSW managed to defend an Origin series win. A play from one Blues legend has stayed with him for 16 years.
At age three, Boyd Cordner followed his dad out for a road run. He lasted nearly 5km. Not long after, he suffered the tragic loss of his mum, which will still be in his heart and mind after tonight's grand final.
My reaction to Gus Gould saying he wouldn’t pick me for State of Origin? If you want everyone to like you, go and sell ice creams. Brad Fittler had my back and this NSW Blues team has a big opportunity.
