Ready for Origin II

Workmates Dianne Fogarty and Teegan Cairns don’t see eye to eye when it comes to origin.

WAYNE'S World workmates Dianne Fogarty and Teegan Cairns love their State of Origin, the problem is the girls barrack for different teams.

Fogarty is a diehard Maroons supporter while Cairns loves the Blues and says they were hard done by in State of Origin I.

She said some of the refereeing decisions in the first game left a lot to be desired.

"I was very disappointed in the last game," Cairns said.

"That try didn't even matter," Fogarty said, blurting out her disapproval.

"We still would have won anyway," she laughed.

Fogarty is the store manager of Wayne's World and spends more than an hour painting each face in the incredible designs.

She said it felt great to dress up for origin.

"Dressing up gives us a sense of comradeship in the shop and it gets the community involved too," Fogarty said.

She thought Queensland would take the series tonight, making it seven in a row.

"I think Queensland will win by 22-18."

Cairns, of course, thought the Blues would keep the series alive and win 12-8 in a close game. The problem was she thought the Blues would win the last game and made a bet with her boss.

"I owe her a day off now," Cairns said.

"I made a bet and I lost."

The girls won't watch the origin together tonight, but Fogarty said she would send texts during the game, especially if the Maroons were winning.
