New South Wales

New South Wales (NSW) secured a 22-12 win in Origin 1 at the MCG that has provided the Blues an opportunity to win the series on home turf in Sydney in Game 2 at ANZ Stadium on Sunday, June 24 2018.


Both sides today released their revised teams for the second match with Queensland (QLD) unveiling Kalyn Ponga as one of their youngest debutants in Origin history.


Injured QLD pair, Billy Slater (Fullback) and Dylan Napa (Prop) have been given until completing training on Wednesday to prove their fitness.

Can QLD come back for Game 2?


QLD Maroons coach Kevin Walters was adamant after Game 1 that the Queenslanders can come back to win in Game 2 to take the series to a home decider at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, QLD’s spiritual home ground;


“This time last year we were in a much worse place from a Queensland point of view,” Walters said, speaking of last year’s series come back.


It will take a monumental effort in 2018 for QLD to come back from the same 1-0 down hole that they did last year. To defy form, a deficit and injuries may prove too much this time around.
