Good evening footy fans and welcome to a sold-out ANZ Stadium in Sydney for tonight's State of Origin decider between NSW and QLD. The match promises to be a beauty with Queensland looking to continue on their good work at Suncorp three weeks ago. New South Wales, however, will want to revert back to their game one plan which worked a treat.
