Queensland took the chocolates in game one with a pulsating second half come back led by Origin specialist Dane Gagai. The first Origin match at Optus Stadium in Perth is a must win for the Blues, who have made a whopping seven changes for the match. Of note, Bunnies five-eighth Cody Walker has been axed in favour of 2018 series winner James Maloney, while centre Latrell Mitchell’s poor game one performance has seen him make way, with new centres Tom Trbojevic and Jack Wighton filling the role. It is also a new look Blues bench, with three players featuring that weren’t there in game one, as well as a new starting prop, Daniel Saifiti, replacing the injured David Klemmer.
It’s mostly business as usual for Queensland, who maintain the same spine that took game one 18-14. Dylan Napa is promoted into a starting role, with Tim Glasby coming onto the bench in their only two changes. The usually dry track a Optus Stadium is expecting plenty of rain this weekend, in particular on game day, where there is a 100 per cent chance of rain.
There was so little that separated the two sides in game one and the Blues deserved more bang for their buck in the first half as they dominated up the middle. The Wolf finds thinks Freddy and his team will have fired up the Blues this week and a slow, wet, slog might be just what they need to warm to the occasion and square the series at one a piece.
