This week in league we’re hitting you with a BONUS episode, a short standalone preview/argument leading in to game one of the 2011 State of Origin series! No point listening to our preview AFTER the game, so here it is, right in time for the big game!

If you’re on Facebook and haven’t become a fan of This Week in League yet, what are you waiting for? We’ve crashed through the 640 barrier, onward we march to 650!

Follow the conversation about this episode on Twitter by including the hashtags #NRL and #TWiLeague in your tweets! Feel free to throw @TWiLeague on there as well if you really want to catch our attention! Our advice: go to and track the #TWiLeague hashtag there during games – it’s like a chatroom for TWiL listeners! Note that this is a change from our previous #TWiL hashtag, there’s too much noise on that tag so let’s keep it unique!
