He's had a horror run in rugby league lately with his Melbourne Storm's fall from grace in the salary cap scandal and now his New South Wales side are one-nil down in the State of Origin series.

Bellamy says that Queensland won't be dropping their standards so New South Wales have to raise theirs.
