Finally common sense has prevailed. This is pretty much what the game 1 squad should have been. That side was sabotage...very NSW like in several mistakes at the selection table.
We'll need the decider i think.

Agree with that but only based on the rumours going around about Kevvie being overruled.

As a Blues supporter I am still confident we can beat this team but now with an element of doubt that wasn't there in game 1. The fact that JT and Billy are back is enough to scare me....a little. Not religious but I think I'm going to pray for a win :pray:

If Queensland happen to lose this game (which they wont as it's the greatest team of internationals ever assembled)...Will there be another 7 changes for game 3..is that how they roll now..?

Will Kevvy see another Origin series...?

So many questions...?

Better team, but Unless Napa can get A big shot on someone, he's a total waste of space. Against a team that can tackle, he is very ordinary in attack, and his general defence is pretty ordinary.
Hess is a big gamble, good forward, but not much experience yet, would need to start well .
A couple of mistakes and the nerves might get to him

This is a more balanced QLD team.

Solid Backline, Im not sure about the Fwds in particular.

Im a nervous Blue this far out

We got you in the backs. Gagai and Holmes have untapped talent and Chambers is big and aggressive.
Experience and class wise, Cooper, JT, Boyd and Billy just know how to get the job done at this level. They have over 70 origin wins between them. NSW entire backline would have maybe a third of that. Forwards however is a different story. NSW have an awesome pack and a very strong bench. QLD's pack are potentially great but mostly unproven. If they click and hold the blues then our experienced backs will deliver the win. If they get rolled then game 1 will repeat.

Should be a cracker of a game either way.

I don't think we have another 7 players putting there hands up to be picked. We lack the depth unlike NSW, but that could all change if another QLD club was brought into the comp.

Who know's but a big victory on Wednesday night should put those doubters to rest.

i don't think it is the end of the ERA, but it will be the test.

To me the end of the era will be when Smith, Thurston and Slater retire. But that neglects some very important Queenslanders.
Front row: Steve Price, Sam Thaiday, Petro, Corey Parker, etc. One Monster front row.
Impact: Ingles, ingles, Justin hodges, Isreal Folau, Ingles, Boyd, etc.

The heart of that team is the awesome combination of Lockyer, Slater and Smith. Thurston can just put icing on the cake, I remember when Scott Prince was half, Thurston had no idea and was lost. That being said Thurston is always targetted, but I always think he is overrated.

GI and Israel though were SO, SOOO awesome. Both meant 1-2 tries per game each. Now NSW have Hayne and they have players that can pull that off (like Jennings who IMHO could get a spot).

No GI, I am typing NSW for the second win with QLD getting the third. But that crazy Australian team spine of Smith, Thurston, Lockyer and Slater gave them the dominance.

no
no
not really

NSW should win this series 3-0... But they wont have much creditability until they can put back-to-back series together.

I suppose we will have to wait until July 2018 to know if this NSW team is the real deal?!
