    Matt, if I have to explain it you will never understand.
    Theory and practice are the same in theory, but different in practice.

    Think outside of the tiny world of Melbourne and Victoria.

    I have never followed any of the rugby codes, yet whilst we lived in Queensland we would invariably end up gathering together with out social circle to watch the State of Origin. Such is it's pervasive nature into all of Queensland (and I assume NSW) life.

    Then we moved to Tasmania, and it just wasn't a thing. If fact, one year I travelled to NZ for work, and whilst there I discovered that the State of Origin was up to its second game. They (public and the media) followed it more there than in Tas.

    So whilst it may seem inconceivable to those living in Qld and NSW, by and large there is a good chance that the rest of the country doesn't even know about the biggest sporting event on your calendar.

    It actually has a large following in Victoria too, mainly because for quite a few years when Queensland was at its peak, the best players from Melbourne Storm were the core of the Queensland team. The Storm have also been home to a lot of NSW players over the years too.

    Origin is certainly not as popular in the "AFL" states as it is in Qld, NSW and to a lesser extent Victoria, but it is pretty well known. They filled the new Optus Stadium in Perth for an Origin game last year, despite COVID.

    True. When last origin match came on at the local sportsbar, at customers demand, they changed channels. "Who wants to watch the Sniffs?"
