Queensland's Suncorp Stadium is "on the verge of not selling out" for the first time since '03, according to Michael Carayannis of the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. About 6,000 tickets "remained unsold for the dead rubber" State of Origin clash, which could draw "less than 50,000 people," which has not happened in Queensland since matches were "again played at the redeveloped Suncorp Stadium 12 years ago." The apparent snub by Queensland fans "has surprised" New South Wales coach Laurie Daley and NSW CEO Dave Trodden, who said that he was "surprised" by the number of tickets left unsold. Trodden: "I really value the great support that we always get from the NSW supporters." Sydney hosted the last dead-rubber in '10 -- when Queensland swept the series -- but the match "still drew almost 62,000 people" (SMH, 7/7).
