It's the ban that, ironically, everyone's talking about but Joe Ofahengaue's excitement at taking the first game of the 2019 Origin series may have just cost him $20.

Ofahengaue's slip-up came at the end of what he described as a "ridiculous" fast-paced Origin debut, telling Triple M NRL that it had been emotional to have his family there.
"To have 55,000 Queensland driving you home, gives you a bit of energy," he said. "When you run out of that tunnel, you feel 10 feet tall."
