Which Queensland star partied the hardest after State of Origin win for the ages

Locker room insider reveals which Queensland star partied the hardest after State of Origin win: ‘If he plays this weekend I’ll be very surprised’

  • Reporter who visited NSW and Maroons camps after match revealed details
  • Said the Blues barns were like a morgue, Queensland like a ‘Vegas penthouse’
  • Insider revealed that a star drank ‘like there was no tomorrow’

There were said to have been thousands of very sore heads in the Sunshine State on Thursday morning after Queensland fans celebrated one of the biggest Origin wins ever – but one Maroons player would have topped them all.

An insider with access to the Cane Toads’ locker room said that while the NSW camp was a “morgue” after the series decider, the winners’ barns were “like a penthouse in Vegas.”

And as for the commander in chief of the party?

“I won’t name the player, but he was on the esky and just put the beers away like there was no tomorrow, and if he plays this weekend I will be very surprised,” said David Riccio. Triple M

He later had reservations, saying the Maroon in question was none other than five-eighth Tom Dearden, who filled in for superstar pivot Cameron Munster when he caught Covid — and didn’t let anyone down.

“I may have hinted at him before, but if Tom Dearden plays, the rookie Queenslander, I’ll be surprised,” Riccio said.

“But he certainly deserved to enjoy it.”

The same can be said of the entire Maroons team after they triumphed in one of the most brutal Origin matches ever.

Munster made headlines after Queensland’s win in game one of this year’s series when he proved he is no longer a hard-partying star by sticking to his 12-month ban despite wild scenes in the Maroons sheds after his man-of-the-match performance.

“It’s been easy, it doesn’t scare me,” he said, remaining a total abstainer while the rest of his teammates got stuck in the beers.

“I haven’t had any urges or the feeling that I’m missing anything. Not drinking, being fitter, means that I am more present at competitions and training.

“Although if Alfie (Langer, Maroon legend) gets a few drinks in him, he wants his little buddy back.”
