Maroons v Blues brothers

HE USED to wear the blue jersey with pride... until he got sick of losing.

In his seven years of living, Hugh Inmon has not once witnessed NSW win an Origin, and so, as any smart boy would, he caught Maroon fever and will this year flaunt Queensland colours.

While his family looked on in horror, Hugh said he was pleased to have made the change and was only too willing to tell of his reasons for the switch.

"Because Queensland's better and they can actually win a game," Hugh said.

While he may be confident the toads will take out yet another series, brother Taegan, 11, is sticking with his blue jersey.

But, wherever there's a Blues supporter, there's an army of Queenslanders waiting in the wings, ready to rip on their Origin rivals, and Taegan learnt that the hard way.

"I wore my (Blues) jersey on Free Dress Day and my mates told me to burn it."
