Dave Taylor gives the Blues the finger

The rugby league star was caught gesturing rudely from the crowd after the Blues failed to secure a point with a drop goal in final seconds of Origin III.

PT0M0S 620 349

Dave Taylor didn’t play for Queensland last night but he still found himself a star on social media after a screenshot of him seemingly giving the finger to NSW lit up Twitter and Facebook.

The Rabbitohs forward was dropped from the Maroons line-up after a low-key effort in game two in Sydney but turned up at Suncorp Stadium to lend his support.

Giving the finger ... Dave Taylor.

Giving the finger ... Dave Taylor.

That apparently included flipping the (Greg?) bird to the Blues in the dying seconds of the game, with a screenshot in the 79th minute showing him hoisting his enormous middle digit as Queensland wound down the clock in its dramatic 21-20 victory.

Taylor says he has no recollection of the incident but he has been rebuked by the Queensland Rugby League who have sent the Maroons forward a letter expressing their disappointment with his actions.

Speaking at Sydney Airport after arriving back from Brisbane this afternoon, Taylor said he did not remember making the gesture.

"I think I was just caught up in the moment. That is all it was. I was very passionate. I didn't even realise I did it to tell you the truth," said Taylor.

"I think it was just the true passion come out in me ... It wasn't directed at anyone. It was just in the moment, I was just cheering and the bird come out ... I was just hyped up and very excited."

Taylor played down the incident when asked at what point in the game it occured.

"See I can't even remember when I did it. I don't know what the big deal is. I was just very passionate. It wasn't directed at anyone. I think a lot worse has come out of the game than that little finger.

"I was just showing my true colours.

"It is quite shocking that all of you guys have turned up over a little thing like this."

When told it was creating a storm on social meda, he said "Is it. Well how about we just keep it there."

Taylor's actions have embarrassed QRL officials, who today sent him a sternly worded letter explaining such behaviour would not be overlooked.

‘‘We don’t condone this type of behaviour,’’ QRL boss Rob Moore, who sent an official notice to the 23 year-old expressing the QRL’s disappointment, told AAP today.

‘‘We’re very disappointed in Dave’s actions,’’ Moore said.

‘‘As coach Mal Meninga and his staff have worked hard to instill the highest of team values and one of those is having the utmost respect for the opposition.

‘‘This behaviour is out of character for players who have been involved in our Origin program.

‘‘We have today written a letter to Dave expressing our disappointment.’’

The incident brings back memories of Queensland firebrand Chris Close giving the finger to the NSW bench after Queensland’s golden point victory in the opening game of the 2005 series.

Gordon Tallis sent NSW scribes into overdrive in 2002 when he aimed a similar gesture at a group of Blues fans following Queensland’s 18-all draw to retain the series. It was later revealed he was retaliatating after a slur directed at his mother.

Taylor’s effort won’t be appreciated by NSW fans, players or coaches. Ricky Stuart, who was thoroughly gracious in defeat last night, has already suggested Queensland players aren’t pin-ups for sportsmanship once they return to clubland and Taylor's actions might give him fuel to the fire.

The fact he had been dropped from the squad will only make it more infuriating for the Blues, unless of course it's revealed he was aiming it at Queensland selectors for dropping him in the first place.

It will only add more theatre to one of the truly great Origin nights, one where Cooper Cronk had two states holding their collective breath before his 75th minute field goal gave Queensland a 21-20 win and a remarkable seventh straight series victory.

Maybe Taylor was just reminding NSW of the difference in the scores.

  • Being a Queenslander in Sydney over the last few weeks, the absolute rubbish in the print and electronic media coming from NSW journo's far outwieghs this gesture from Taylor. If you believe what you read and hear in NSW recently, Qld wins because of referees and luck, NSW wins (one game of three right?) because of the worlds greatest coach, the worlds best captain etc etc. To the NSW media, grow a pair and acknowledge the greatest rugby league team, dynasty and coach that there has ever been....seven in a row pretty much says it all. Facts not fiction might be the focus hey boys instead of these nonsense petulant little stories

    • One of the Queensland imortals even said it was a shepard, not NSW media, Wally Lewis. Queensland are a great team, but have benefited from several greatious calls from refs to get hem over the line. If Qld lost the series if NSW scored that try would you be greateous now? Taylor shows how unsportman like Queenslanders are, absolute no respect for the opposition.

    • Geez Greg, you need a rest, or at least to calm down a bit. It's only footy. Had a coffee too many already this morning?

      Of course the media propaganda is slanted in favour of the state it's written in. But again, it's just footy, nothing to get worked up about (unless you've got big money invested).

      Just have a laugh and move on.

      Now, about that French cycling..........

    • Today is a beautiful day to wake up as a Queenslander. How terribly hard must it be to have to wake up knowing that your team, no your State, was beaten again. As gregscanlan has said, the NSW media will not print how well Queensland played, or what a great/close series this was - instead it will be how NSW was robbed and how Coal Train flipped the bird.

      Here is an idea - print a full page photo of the SoO Trophy. It is the closest you will get to it for at least another year.

    • I was disappointed by the several rounds of "boos" last night any time the NSW team were mentioned.

      Ricky Stuart may have been gracious in defeat but I cant say the QLD fans were gracious in victory.
