Origin 2 2024 - Wednesday 26th June 2024

Recommended Posts

Blues still only have 2 "real" props in their 17, so the Maroons forwards will steamroller them again.

Jurbo, Murray and Yeo are all too similar and will get in each others way.

Not convinced Moses and Luai will be any better than Nicho and Luai.

Queensland to win again, by 12 to 16.

Walsh to get targeted again leading to a good old fashioned all in brawl. 

I’ll definitely be watching then ( not for the Walsh being targeted bit )

Lots of exciting players, but, looking at both sides, I'm bound to wonder whether they are both short of a prop or two.

The Blues find themselves down 1-0 for the third year in a row, but they have a terrific record at the MCG, with the new-look side confident they can flip the script after they were humbled at home.

They only have to look back to 1994 for inspiration when NSW lost the series opener at home thanks to Mark Coyne’s miracle try before they bounced back with a big win at the MCG and then thrashed Queensland in Brisbane to clinch the series.

“That’s the beauty of Origin. If you lose that game one, there’s still a chance to bring it back,” Luai said.

“I just think it’s do or die for us now.

Queensand can wrap up a third straight series at the MCG on Wednesday night but Maroons legend Cooper Cronk admits he’s the “least confident he’s been” in any game of Billy Slater’s tenure.

That’s because a new-look NSW Blues will be absolutely desperate to square the series after going down 38-10 in a controversial series opener.

“Desperation forces you to the contest earlier than your opposition.” Cronk said on the Matty Johns Podcast.

“.... And then once you’ve got a lot of people thinking that way, that’s why it ends up being that desperation that plays a key part.

The Blues have made five changes to their Game One team and Cronk has identified fullback Dylan Edwards as the danger man for Queensland tonight.

“I feel like he has just been building for this moment. This kid’s been waiting for this opportunity for a long time,” Cronk said.

“... I just feel like he’s gonna make up for lost time.”
