      In Queensland, Australia, there have been reports of two intruders breaking into a home and causing an altercation with elderly residents. The men, described as tall and skinny, managed to escape before emergency services arrived, leaving a 72-year-old man with minor injuries. This incident comes just before the deadline for a petition to enact "castle law," which would allow residents to use force to protect themselves during break-ins. Meanwhile, the annual State of Origin series between New South Wales and Queensland is providing a significant economic boost to pubs and clubs in Southwest Queensland. A new trial is also underway to have domestic and family violence specialists respond with police to ensure those in need of protection are identified and receive necessary orders. In sports news, the Maroons are aiming to win a third consecutive Origin shield in tonight's game 1, with Tom Dearden replacing Cam Munster in the number 6 jersey. Additionally, Attorney General Yvette D'Ath emphasized the importance of correctly identifying those causing harm in domestic violence cases to ensure protection for those most in need.
