Is this the best press conference ever?

NSW VB Blues captain Paul Gallen answered the media’s questions this morning – and he left everyone with plenty to report on.

Whether it’s Queensland’s “grubby tactics”, the level of "respect" the Maroons have for the VB Blues or the pressure on the game’s $10-million-dollar-man Daly Cherry-Evans, this is must-see TV.

Watch the Gallen presser in its entirety, rated by a number of journalists as “the best” of the year and one of the most memorable of all-time.

Make sure you watch right to the end!

Answer the call and get behind the NSW VB Blues when they take on Queensland in this year’s Holden State of Origin, with Game II played on 17 June in Melbourne. Coach Laurie Daley and the boys need your support! There’s no better way to support the Blues than being a part of The Star-backed Blatchys Blues crowd - join the Official NSW VB Blues supporter bays for Origin II here.
