Sing Out vs State of Origin

THEY’RE more interested in screaming out “go the mar- oons” than singing their hearts out.

Some St Patrick’s School pupils are preparing to miss the second State of Origin game tonight as it aligns with the Sing Out competition in Toowoomba.

Lachlan and Trent Henry, along with their cousin, Nick Van Der Poel, said they were all looking forward to Sing Out before they all looked at each other, laughed and said “not really”.

“I’d prefer to watch the State of Origin,” Trent said.

Nick, Darling Downs under 11 representative, said he would have liked to be at home watching the greats of his favourite sport slog it out at Suncorp Stadium.

Trent said his family were attending the event along with his dad.

Then he smirked and said he thought they would have preferred to be watching the game too.

They were already prepared at both households to have the match recorded so they didn’t miss a beat when they got home after showing off their singingtalents.

The boys all play with the Wattles Juniors in Clifton and all said they dreamed of one day having the talent to battle it out with New South Wales in State ofOrigin.

“It’s a great game to play and you get to meet new people from different clubs and get fit,” Nick said.

Lachlan said Queensland would win the second game tonight and predicted there would be a 30-24 win over the Blues.
