While the State of Origin fever might be high in other centres across the country, Lae residents haven’t shown much interest.
Unlike previous years, the blue and maroon colours were only seen on vehicles and PMV buses.
What might happen after the game tonight is unpredictable. From past experiences, marriages were broken, people victimised and television sets were destroyed.
At Lae central bus stop is were New South Wales and Queensland flags and posters, were displayed on PMV buses. Bus crews and drivers like this were supporters who couldn’t resist showing their loyalty.
The game has been the reason behind the broken marriages, destroyed properties and countless instances of abuse over the years.
Queensland is the favourite for tonight’s game, with many fans getting behind the player.
The city is expected to be quiet with many expected to be watching the game in the comfort of their Newss. EMTV also took to the streets, and asked several people who they think will be tonight’s winner.
Police will be out patrolling the streets to ensure there is no public nuisance by drunkards after the game.
