Origin rivalry reaches fever pitch for epic decider

Westmead dental team colleagues Clint Dukamp and Terry Milan square off in a inter-dental State of Origin arm wrestling contest, cheered on by Liran Zhao, Eve Wolstencroft, Vanessa Robertson and Rita Yousif.

It’s the great sporting rivalry that pits mate against mate and state against state.

With Origin fever once again taking over Western Sydney Local Health District, The Pulse busted staff sneaking in workouts and facing off in an intense arm wrestle on a dental chair ahead of the Game 3 decider tonight.

Some are so confident of back-to-back Blues victory they’ve been practicing lifting their own shield – a bed pan – slightly less glamorous than the one Brad Fittler’s boys are vying for.

Naturally (most of) Western Sydney Local Health District is backing the Blues to land the killer blow on home ground, but the Maroons will be keen to make amends for their embarrassment in Perth.

So who will it be: Cockroaches or Cane Toads?
