LOATH as we are to acknowledge any good deeds being performed by the Queensland State of Origin rugby league team on the eve of State of Origin 2, one recent incident involving Queensland and Australian skipper Darren Lockyer has ticked enough heroism boxes to rate a mention.

Lockyer and his Maroons teammates were relaxing at a Brisbane hotel pool when the sound of a loud crash interrupted the tranquility. It emerged that there had been a car accident on Brisbane's Alice St, which is adjacent to their hotel, Royal on the Park. Wearing only his Speedo swimmers, Lockyer jumped from the pool and ran outside to find a hatchback flipped over on to its roof.

Trapped inside was a very distressed young woman. Onlookers say that Lockyer, assisted by his Queensland teammates Cooper Cronk, Sam Thaiday, trainer Tony Spencer and physio Scott Thornton, ran to the car and carefully pulled the woman from the wreckage. "We just happened
to be there when we heard the accident," a modest Lockyer confirmed to Confidential yesterday.

"The car had flipped so we ran out and assisted her and fortunately she was okay."The girl, who profusely thanked her knight in damp Speedos, suffered only minor cuts and bruises.

Great work by the Legend to run out there in his Speedos and help the poor girl out guess you've also gotta say great work to Big Sam, Cronk, Tony Spencer and Scott Thornton as well. Whilst NSW are fighting amongst themselves the might of Queensland are out being real life hero's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
