Queensland MP Bob Katter has taken a sly dig at NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian after she was trolled for a bizarre State of Origin post ahead of Game 1.

The NSW premier took to social media before Game 1 in Townsville to show her support for her state, which the Blues ended up winning convincingly.

But Berejiklian was mocked for the bizarre post.

The photo showed the premier with her back to the camera, wrapped in a Blues scarf and wearing a beanie.

She was also holding an unopened can of Coke Zero.

Some fans couldn't get over the staged photo, from the unopened can of Coke, or the fact coverage hadn't even started for Origin at 4pm.

Since the post, NSW has gone 2-0 up in the series after demolishing the Maroons in both games with a combined score of 76-6.

Now, Kennedy MP Katter has taken a sly dig at the NSW premier with his own take on how he is preparing for the final State of Origin match.

Katter appears to take a dig at Berejiklian for not supporting Australian products, since she was holding a can of Coca-Cola, and held a bottle of milk and rum.

"In the cane fields and coal mines, we drink rum and milk," he said.

"This is Australian milk and Australian rum."

The backing track to his quirky video is iconic Queensland band Powderfinger's song: Sunsets.

To top it off, Katter had an NRL replay on in the background, which was in stark contrast to Berejiklian staring at tiny TV.

The sledging war might have come a tad late with star-studded NSW side looking to become the first Blues team in 21 years to win a clean sweep with all three games held in Queensland.

Blues chasing 21-year State of Origin stunt history

The Blues have the chance to pull off their first whitewash in 21 years on Wednesday night, with Covid-19 offering them the rare opportunity to win all three games on Queensland soil.

A win by 29 points or more will also make it the most lopsided series in history, with Queensland having never inflicted consistent floggings like this.

But it is the prospect of a whitewash that the Blues want most.

So rare are they that even Queensland managed just one during their glory years between 2006 and 2017 when they won 11 out of 12 series.
