The State of Origin show shifts to Brisbane for the second game of the series where Queensland go in pronounced favourites to win their 10th series in 11 years following a gritty 6-4 win over the Blues at ANZ Stadium in the series opener. The Maroons have a coronation on their mind while it is all about survival for Laurie Daley and his Blues.
Queensland were forced into their only change with Nate Myles out hurt. Jacob Lillyman comes back into the team while Josh McGuire is elevated to the starting lineup. Laurie Daley has stuck fat with the team that went close in Sydney with the only change being Tyson Frizell – via Wade Graham, who was suspended for his debut appearance after being selected – replacing the injured Boyd Cordner, who was arguably the Blues’ best in the series opener. James Tedesco leads a long list of players who were overlooked while Dylan Walker miraculously kept his spot on the bench.
Queensland have won 57 Origins with New South Wales claiming 47 and three matches drawn. The Maroons have won 18 series to 12 and hold a 1768-1622 points advantage. NSW have used 257 players all-time compared to 181 for the Maroons. This will be the 52nd Origin played at Suncorp with the Maroons winning 32 to the Blues’ 18 with one draw. Since 2008 the Maroons have won 8 of the 10 matches played at Suncorp. The Maroons have won 3 of the last 4 at Suncorp by 20-plus including a record 52-6 win in the decider last year. Four of the last six matches at Suncorp have topped 40 points. Greg Inglis and Darius Boyd are the two greatest tryscorers in Origin history with 17 and 16 respectively.
The Maroons are the form team and have been for the last decade. They have won 9 of the last 10 series – and they won the series decider last year 52-6, the last game played at Suncorp. They won the series opener down in Sydney 6-4 to boot. Over the last five years the Maroons have won 11 of the 16 matches. The Maroons have scored 30-plus in 2 of their last 5 while the Blues have not posted 30 points since the final game of the 2005 series. In terms of club form, Queensland have five players in the Top 20 of the Dally M Medal count – Cronk, Smith, Thurston, Inglis and McGuire – with Cronk equal leader while the Blues have just equal leader Andrew Fifita coming off the bench. Queensland have 12 players from Top 4 clubs with just two from bottom four teams. NSW have four players from Top 4 teams while four players have been plucked from bottom four clubs.
Darius Boyd v Matt Moylan. By the count of everyone bar the selectors dishing out the award, Darius Boyd was the man of the match in the series opener. He was absolutely brilliant. There is no more reliable fullback in the game with Boyd mistake-free from beginning to end. His attacking touches are also perfect with his pass setting Queensland up for the match-winning try. The pressure is certainly on his opposite Matt Moylan, who had a mixed bag on his debut. Moylan played hard but made some critical errors and was lucky to hold his spot with James Tedesco waiting in the wings. With playmaking and the kick return game so important, Boyd and Moylan enter this with the weight of the game on their shoulders.
The home team with a chance to wrap up a series on home turf in Game 2 has won the last three and is 8-2 all-time. Queensland have a 6-1 record in the last seven live matches played at Suncorp. New South Wales have averaged just 10.2 points a match under Laurie Daley. The Blues have not scored more than eight points in four games played at Suncorp under Daley. The Blues have won 4 of the last 5 Game 2 matches though lost the only one of those to be played in Queensland. Darius Boyd has scored seven tries in his last five games at Suncorp for the Maroons. Queensland have won the penalty count 23-10 in the last two matches at Suncorp while under Sutton and Cummins the Maroons have won 40 penalties to 28 with the home team winning the count in all five matches. The Maroons have six players with more than 20 games experience while the Blues have just one. Both teams have two players with multiple Man of the Match awards: Queensland have Thurston and Smith with five apiece while NSW have Bird with three and Gallen with two. There have been just three field goals kicked in the last 22 Origin matches. The Maroons spine has has a combined 112 games, 46 try assists and 29 tries compared to 20 games and five assists for the Blues. The Maroons have four players in the Top 20 tryscorers this year while the Blues have two. The Maroons have four players with 8-plus try assists while the Blues have no player with more than eight. Since 2008 11 of the 16 later-series matches have been decided by a margin of 6 or greater.
Queensland will be crowned champions – again – on Wednesday night in what looks a total mismatch on Maroon home turf. The Blues got conditions to suit their grinding style in the opener but could not take advantage. A faster track, less favourable officiating and a game under their belt should all favour the Maroons. Laurie Daley made a mess of his interchange in the series opener and with his ridiculous persistence in valuing loyalty above an opportunity to win there is no reason to have any faith that the Blues coaching setup can make the necessary adjustments to run with the Maroons. They have scored just 10.2 points a game under Daley and that includes an outlier of 26. The Maroons can pile up points at Suncorp and will be buoyed by the Blues’ refusal to make the necessary changes. Queensland will win this and likely in a canter.
