State Of Origin III Preview

Venue: ANZ Stadium Referee: Tony Archer Touch Judges: Russell Turner and Steve Chiddy Video Referees: Bill Harrigan and Tim Mander

The decider is almost upon us! The Blues have again reshuffled their side, which could be good and bad for this final match. Many would argue that the team they have selected for this match, barring an injury to Greg Bird and Peter Wallace, is very close to what the line up should have been all series.

The Maroons have named an unchanged line up for the decider, whereas the Blues have brought in the in-form Roosters halves pairing of Braith Anasta and Mitchell Pearce. Their kicking game is going to be critical to the Blues go-forward. Cameron Smith
