Queensland have won 58 Origins with New South Wales claiming 49 and three matches drawn. The Maroons have won 19 series to 12. The Maroons have won 10 of the last 11 series and have won the last two series. The Blues have won 5 of the last 8 at ANZ with the last five at the ground all being decided by six points or fewer.
Queensland have dominated State of Origin for over a decade with 10 series wins from the last 11 years including the last two series but the Blues turned the tables in the opener with a 28-4 win at Suncorp. That is now two wins on the trot for NSW after they won the dead rubber third game last year. NSW have scored 16 points in their last three after doing so in just one of their previous 10. The Blues have won 5 of the last 8 at ANZ with the last five at the ground all being decided by six points or fewer. NSW have nine players from Top 4 clubs and four from the bottom four while Queensland have seven from Top 4 teams and two from bottom four teams.
For the first time in over two decades, NSW have named an unchanged line-up – and after their blistering performance at Suncorp Stadium last month, it’s no wonder why.
NSW completely outplayed Queensland in their own backyard, dominating through the forwards, which allowed the halves and backs more time to work their magic in a clinical 28-4 victory. It was an extremely impressive showing, and as such, the Blues have stayed the same while the Maroons have made wholesale changes.
Kevin Walters has wielded his axe, dropping Aidan Guerra, Jacob Lillyman, Sam Thaiday, Nate Myles, Corey Oates and Justin O’Neill, while Anthony Milford is sidelined through injury.
NSW have named the same team in consecutive games for the first time since 1996, while Queensland have made sweeping changes, with Aidan Guerra, Jacob Lillyman, Sam Thaiday, Nat Myles, Corey Oates and Justin O’Neill all dropped and Anthony Milford missing through injury.
Billy Slater returns at fullback, pushing Darius Boyd out to the wing, while Valentine Holmes makes his debut on the other flank as Dane Gagai moves into the centres. Johnathan Thurston returns at halfback – as does his Cowboy teammate Gavin Cooper in the second row – while Coen Hess, Jarrod Wallace and Tim Glasby will also play their first Origin games.
