Game 2 Preview:

In the first game of the State of Origin series, held in Sydney, New South Wales was a 3.5-point favorite but lost 16-10. They are still trying to get over the loss. The Blues will have a  very different team when they go to Perth for Sunday’s must-win game.

After losing by such a small margin in the last round of the Origin competition, neither team has ever made such big changes to their rosters.

Coach Brad Fittler has let go of forwards Tariq Sims, Reagan Campbell-Gillard, and rookie center Kotoni Staggs. Center Jack Wighton, their best player in Game 1, has also been let go.

Queensland would have been able to go into game two with the same 17 players, but injuries have kept winger Xavier Coates and forward Reuben Cotter, who was excellent in his first game, from playing.

Murray Taulagi will play his first State of Origin game on the Cowboys’ right flank, next to Cowboys teammate Valentine Holmes. On the other hand, Jai Arrow will return to sitting on the bench for this match.

The Maroons won the match, but the final score in Sydney didn’t show how much they succeeded. Even though the Blues were outplayed, outmuscled, and out-motivated for the whole second half of the game, they returned with a fury.
