NSW would want to win this series now

I am guessing the comments /betting on the Post Sunday Matty Johns show about taking the NSW 3-0 and 13 + every game at $ 29 was very ambitious and very condescending
Yo offenned preshuss?
Not really Ink , just think NSW are taking it for granted QLD are just going to rollover and play dead and the lack of SOO experience in the NSW forward pack might lean Game 1 back to 50/50 contest

I can't see a NSW series blowout
Really you have heard the NSW team and coaching staff say this...

Or punters and so called commentators...?

Maroons Statement: Billy Slater out for Origin 1

https://www.qrl.com.au/news/20182/06/04 ... ly-slater/



Billy Slater has today confirmed he will not play in the opening match of the Holden State of Origin series at the Melbourne Cricket Ground due to a hamstring injury.

"I didn't pull up as well as I would have liked after our training run on Sunday, and because I'm not 100 per cent, it's in my best interests as well as the team's to withdraw from Wednesday's game," Slater said.

Maroons coach Kevin Walters will consult with selectors and senior players before deciding on the final make-up of the side closer to kick off.

He confirmed Anthony Milford and Kalyn Ponga will join the Maroons squad in Melbourne tonight.

"We knew we had some concerns with Billy, but he's a champion player and we needed to give him every chance to play," Walters said.

"We've had plans in place to cover Billy if he didn't come up right, and we've actioned that today with Anthony and Kalyn coming in."
I never heard of Toxic Shock Syndrome affecting the hammies before.
Tough luck Bill.

Dylan Napa
Jarrod Wallace
Josh Papalii
Coen Hess
Jai Arrow
Gavin Cooper
Felise Kaufusi
Josh McGuire

I think people are so caught up in the NSW rookies that they havent had a good look at that pack.

Its an outstanding young pack, guys like Hess, Arrow and Wallace are born origin players.

Theyll more than hold their own.


The QLD backs can defend the NSW rookies so it might just come down to the halves i think.

All hangs on Nathan Cleary or Munster for mine.
Its an opinion!

Felise Kaufusi on an edge might be in for a big one against some suspect defensive halves and centres.

Under the radar!

This came from left field , but I've heard Munster could be at fullback , and Milford @ 6

Because of the last minute change , they want to keep the old Bronco's combination together and keep some fluency in the back line

Not a fan personally , Qld are going to have to defend their way to victory and make sure they grab whatever limited opportunities than can create

Milford in my opinion isn't a SOO quality player , but offers something off the bench with his running game

I see some initial teething issues for Tedesco , Maloney , Cleary and Cook

Its a great combination don't get me wrong , but Cook isn't the best player in front of Maloney and Cleary until they can read each other's games and have played together

I'm far more fearful Games 2 and 3 though

Napa, Hess and Papallii are all borderline reserve-graders. McGuire hasn't played in 2 months. If the Blues can't get over the top of that pack they should be publicly stoned.

Thank you.

It's that exact attitude that has seen QLD do what they do when it comes to Origin.

Those boys are quality.

Spewing about that because it means Corey Oates will come into the team who should have been picked in the first place.

Nope saying that they’ll shift half the side out one place.
Croft - fullback
Milford - 5/8
Morgan - centre
Chambers - wing
Ponga - bench

Should just bring a winger in

Chambers to the wing? That's crazy he's one of the best centres in the game.

Dane Gagai has today suffered a compound dislocation of his finger at training. Unlikely to play Origin 1 in just over 24 hours time, but it is possible. If dislocation was clean (minimal ligament/tendon damage) risk of infection main roadblock, pain tolerance an issue as well.
