If I was a betting man, I would bet the farm on the game being decided by “a howler from the referees”. The losing team will miss more tackles, drop more balls, not take their opportunities and be generally outplayed, but will blast the referees for that one or two 50/50 calls that go against them late in the game.
I think Maloney will guide the Blues to win, he just knows how to get the points in the big games. NSW 18 - QLD 10
For me a low scoring affair
Qld 14 Holmes try Holmes 5/5 beat NSW 10 Cleary JAC tries Maloney 1/2
HT NSW 10-4
Defence Defence Defence
Penalty Count Qld 12 NSW 3
The penalty count alone will be gold , as mentioned yesterday GI got his ref licence
Only 2 referees tonight as Cam has retired.
