Great grandma’s tribute puts the ode into Origin
A TINANA great grandmother is so passionate about the Origin series, she was moved to write a poem.
Winnie Cordie, mother of seven children, grandmother of 20 , and great grandmother of 18 said she loves the Cowboys and the Broncos and the State of Origin Series is a highlight in her calendar. " I just love to see them play, I love a fair game," Mrs Cordie said.
Her favourite players are Johnathan Thurston and Sam Thaiday.
State of Origin
State of Origin Fever, two great states are gripping
While folk by the score gallons of grog will be slipping
And the favorites I believe are those cocky roach Blues
It will send some insane, as to who they should choose
But rubbed with Goanna oil and bounding roo steaks they've eaten,
I dare you to even think, those mighty maroon toads could be beaten.
- Winnie Cordie
