The Maroons were able to slip a bug into the NSW locker room. The following was recorded in the Blues' dressing room after their one point loss to QLD.
Gallen: Well that was hopeless boys. You lot looked as though you couldn't win an argument out there, letalone a game of Origin footy.
Daley: That's a bit rough Gall.
Gallen: Robbie, no offense mate, but you're a hopeless captain. You couldn't lead a thirsty horse to water. How did you ever get to be captain of the Tigers?
Farah: Had anyone who questioned me fired.
Gallen: Yeah right.
Dugan: Maybe we need to have a couple of Bacardi Breezers to ease the pain of this loss.
Gallen: Shut it Doogz. Your field goal attempt was woeful. You couldn't drop kick the broad side of a barn. Loz, mate, what was the actual game plan for tonight?
Pearce: I know! To kick the ball really high.
Gallen: Well mate mission accomplished. You sure did that.
Pearce: I can kick the ball REAL high.
Hodkinson: He can. It's true. I saw him do it.
Gallen: We all did! Talk about a one trick pony Pearce. Surely there was a game plan other than kick the ball really high.
Daley: No that was about the sum of it Gall.
Gallen: Come on boys, we're up against a team who are all close to the pension age! Corey Parker is literally grey for Christ's sake.
Cordner: Yeah Gall's right, we need to take a long hard look at ourselves.
Gallen: Jesus! Boyd, where did you come from?? I didn't see you all night. I figured you must have missed the bus or something. Did you even play? Where were you?
Cordner: I was here Gall.
Gallen: Well I didn't see you mate.
Merrin: No one did. I didn't even see you and I was supposed to be sitting next to you on the bench!
Hodkinson: How come no one passed me the ball? I could have kicked a field goal. I could have.
Gallen: That's true, Trent was in position to take a field goal twice, why didn't he get the pill Robbie? What were you thinking?
Farah: My shoulder hurt. Hodges was really mean to me.
Woods: QLD were mean! Josh McGuire pulled my pony tail.
Gallen: I've got no problem with that Azza. I want to pull your bloody pony tail too! You look like a drowned rat. Farah? I'm waiting.
Farah: My shoulder was really sore.
Gallen: Harden up you sook. Why didn't you set up a decent shot at field goal?!
Farah: Are you questioning my authority?
Gallen: I just want to know what you were thinking? You ran it and then gave it to Doogz of all people.
Farah: You're fired!
Gallen: Ease up Robbie, this isn't West's mate.
Daley: Robbie says you're gone Gall. I have to ask you to leave.
Farah: Tell your story walking Gall!
Security: Time to leave Gall.
Gallen: (being dragged out of the dressing room) You can't do this! Farah, I'll get you for this! Pearce I swear you're a mole for the Maroons! It's not fair!
Daley: Gee whiz. I'm glad he's gone. He was really negative. I'm proud of you lot though. Pearce you carried out the game plan to a tee. Stick with it for Game 2. Kick that ball high mate.
Pearce: I can kick the ball high....
