Both Michael Gordon and Dale Copley come form different sides of the border and today had mixed opinions on how game two of the State of Origin series went.

For Gordon, a Tweed Coast Raiders junior, it was a good night but all-in-all, he thought it was a great game.

"It was great from a result point of view but it was a cracking game of footy," Gordon said. "It was a good result and I do think the better team won."

Copley, as a Queenslander, was a bit more disappointed.

"It was a great spectacle and one of the better games I've seen in a while," he said. "Not a good one as a Queenslander though."

Whilst supporting their state of origin, both men were keeping a close eye on our Titans, Jai Arrow and Jarrod Wallace.

"He was enormous," Gordon said of Arrow. "He carried strong (in attack) and was belting blokes in defence.

"He's been playing like that all year for us but it's good to see it from him in that arena."

Copley echoed those comments.

"He brought a lot (to the game," he said. "He was involved in a few big moments and flew out of the line a couple of times to put a hit on.

"I'm glad he's a got a few days rest now, not just the two he had after the last game to back up for us."

Although only being out there for the opening 28 minutes, both players thought Wallace had a better input than he had in game one.

"It was a great opening stint," Gordon said. "They (QLD) were up 10-nil and were shifting it a bit more. Wallace was involved in a lot of that."

"He was quite involved defensively," Copley added. "He would've been a bit disappointed not to get back out there but they probably didn't expect Kalyn (Ponga) to play as many minutes as he did in the middle and that would've messed around their bench rotation a bit."
