State of Origin Game 3 NSW QLD

After 4 long years, New South Wales (NSW) has broken the drought since their last State of Origin series win over the Queensland Maroons (QLD).


For QLD in particular, there is never such-a-thing as a ‘dead’ Origin rubber and many huge QLD wins in Game 3’s past has become the thing of Origin folklore.


Looking forward to Game 3 in Brisbane, we look at the QLD and NSW ins and outs, injury updates and the team announcements and how they affect Betting Top 10’s odds & predictions for the big final match at Brisbane’s QLD spiritual home, Lang Park.
