Queensland vs New South Wales
The upcoming “Queensland vs New South Wales” game is set to be a thrilling encounter. As the final match of the Brad Fittler era for New South Wales looms, the Blues are gearing up to avoid a clean sweep on their home turf. The team has undergone significant changes following their defeat in Game 2. Player performance is another crucial factor. Valentine Holmes, Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, Ben Hunt, James Tedesco, and Josh Addo-Carr have shown prowess in previous Origin games. Their performances could significantly influence the outcome of the match. Considering these factors, it’s reasonable to predict a close game.
Betting Tip: Blues @ 2.25 WINNING MARGIN 1-12
The “Queensland Maroons”, led by Billy Slater, are aiming to secure the first Origin clean sweep since 2010. Despite the suspension of Reece Walsh, the Maroons remain confident with AJ Brimson stepping in as fullback. Raiders prop Corey Horsburgh will also make his Origin debut, replacing the injured Thomas Flegler. The Maroons have already secured back-to-back series victories and are now eyeing a clean sweep, a feat that hasn’t been achieved since 2010.
New South Wales Blues
The “New South Wales Blues” have a fighting chance. Keaon Koloamatangi and Bradman Best will make their Origin debuts, Cody Walker returns to the field for the first time since 2020, and Clint Gutherson, Reagan Campbell-Gillard, Jacob Saifiti, and Jake Trbojevic are set to make their series debut in Blues colours. In seven of the last eight Origin dead rubbers, the team trailing 2-0 has won Game III. Furthermore, in nine of the last 10 Origin series, the team that lost Game II has covered the line in Game III. This suggests that the Blues have a strong chance of bouncing back. Given the Blues’ track record in bouncing back and the home-ground advantage, it’s plausible that New South Wales could clinch a victory. A realistic final score could be 24-18 in favour of the Blues.
In conclusion, both the “Queensland Maroons” and the “New South Wales Blues” have their strengths and weaknesses. However, the Blues have a slight edge based on past performances and current circumstances. Regardless of the outcome, expect an exciting and competitive match.
