Curtis Parkinson, 5, penned a very short and sweet letter to National Rugby League chief executive officer Todd Greenberg and said the State of Origin games were past his bedtime.

Some consider State of Origin as the pinnacle of rugby league, but mother Nicole said the game’s kick off was too late for her kindergartner to watch.

The origin fixtures are programmed on Channel Nine from 8pm on Wednesday nights, but the game’s actual kick-off can be as late as 8.20pm.

Despite Curtis’ protests, his parents said there was nothing they could do and prompted their son to write a letter to the NRL’s boss.

“Why is state of origin on so late? Kids like me can’t watch it,” Curtis wrote.

“I am five years old. Can you please fix it?”

After waiting a couple of weeks, Mrs Parkinson said she expected to at least get a response from the CEO’s office, but they got a little more than they anticipated.

Mr Greenberg replied with a handwritten note of his own and some merchandise for the young fan.

“I always appreciate feedback from our fans, especially from an intelligent five year old with very impressive handwriting,” Mr Greenberg wrote.

“I will certainly talk to Channel 9 about the kick off times for State of Origin and will do my best to make it a bit earlier so you can watch it.”

It was reported soon after Curtis received his letter, the NRL boss was setting up a meeting with Channel Nine to discuss kick-off times.

“It’s quite interesting, he’s only five years old,” Mrs Parkinson said.

“But his letter might change something and it shows that you do have a say.”

Lucky for Curtis, game three of the series, next Wednesday, falls in the school holidays, so his mother think he might be able to watch some of the game.

Mrs Parkinson said 7.30pm would be a better time slot for the Wednesday night games.
