New South Wales appeared to have wrapped up the series after blitzing the Maroons 28-4 in Game 1 up in Brisbane and then leading their rivals with just three minutes remaining in Origin II at ANZ Stadium in Game 2.
However, as is the Queensland way, the Maroons showcased that trademark never-say-die attitude and came away with an incredible last-minute triumph, with Michael Morgan putting Dane Gagai over in the corner and Johnathan Thurston slotting a sideline conversion to hand Queensland the ascendancy heading into Game 3.
But do Queensland have the advantage at Suncorp Stadium next Wednesday night, that’s the question? The Blues crushed them by 24 points just over a month ago and they will be without two of their star players – Thurston and fullback Darius Boyd.
Much debate has centred around who will replace Thurston in the halves, and Queensland selectors have made the controversial decision to overlook the form halfback of the competition – Daly Cherry-Evans – in favour of Cameron Munster partnering his Storm teammate Cooper Cronk at five-eighth and Ben Hunt being picked as the bench utility, with Morgan moving into the centres.
It’s a gamble from the Maroons, but it’s understandable in regards to Munster coming in – giving Queensland’s spine an all-Melbourne flavour, while Hunt can probably do just as good a job in a utility role as Cherry-Evans.
New South Wales meanwhile have remained loyal, picking the same players throughout the entire series for the first time since 1996. However the Blues are under immense pressure – only nerves and panic stopped them from winning in Sydney, and they simply cannot afford to lose this after dominating the series until the last three minutes of Game 2.
There are several injury concerns in the Blues camp, most notably to skipper Boyd Cordner and Tyson Frizell, but Laurie Daley is hopeful of all his players recovering in time for Wednesday.
It promises to be an absolutely pulsating encounter, and Queensland are now right in with a chance of securing another Origin series that seemed impossible at half-time in Game 2. But I think NSW lost that game more than Queensland won it, and if the Blues can replicate their dominant performance from Game 1 – which they really should be able to do – then they will scrape home and capture just their second series win since 2005.
NSW have named the same side in all three games for the first time in over two decades, while Cameron Munster and Ben Hunt are the fresh face in the Queensland side, replacing Thurston and Boyd.
