Greg Bird offered a much-missed dose of aggression, helping NSW salvage some pride in origin game 3, 2007.

not in the shire anymore :(
I loved the commentary when that happened ... they all went 'OOOOOOHHH! What a hit! Greg Bird has come in with a late, high hit ... he might be sent off for this' ... then they show the replay, and the commentators are silent. One of them said, 'nah, that was alright actually'.

I'm a Queenslander and I even loved that. But keep it under your hat!

I'd be happy to see this hit as a benchmark for judiciary hearings.

I'm pissed of with League axioms like 'he was committed to the tackle' when Clubs are defending a late tackle on a kicker charge.

Too many times players have gotten off lightly for 'committing' themselves to a 'tackle', when the player has known all along that they are going to hit the kicker after he has kicked the footy.

This tackle shows a true fifty fifty scenario, and one where the kicker is hit between the hip and the shoulder.

And it was made at the highest level of the game.............by a Shark :)

Hope that if Thurston plays on Saturday, the same thing happens to him as last year's Origin game.
