State Of Origin Game 3 Set to Surprise
Set to kick off on Wednesday 12 July 2017 at 8 p.m. AEST at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, the State of Origin Game 3 remains a focal point in the Australian Rugby League season. Large numbers of fans tune in from all over to catch and follow the action, creating the space for plenty of exciting betting opportunities. Queensland Maroons and New South Wales Blues are pitted against each other in what is considered the most physical representative Rugby League competition in the world.
The score is settled in a best of three clash, with the 3rd game in this year’s spat being the deciding one.
Games 1 and 2
New South Wales defeated Queensland with a score of 28 / 4 in what played out to be a very dominating first game as far as New South Wales powerhouse player Andrew Fafita was concerned. Fafita was subsequently awarded the Man of the Match title for his stud performance in Game 1. As is clear from the score, Queensland managed to secure a single try only, scored by winger Corey Oats.
Jarryd Hayne, Mitchell Pearce and James Maloney assisted in taking the match for New South Wales.
Game 2 yielded a result in favour of Queensland, the final score tallying to 18 / 16. Queensland will be looking to beat the tough odds established by 7 of the 8 last series, during which the winners of the opening match went on to reign victorious overall.
It was the first Game 1 loss for Queensland since 1987.
Queensland was overshadowed by the Blues during the first half of Game 2, but the fate of New South Wales was sealed during the second half almost exclusively by player James Maloney having missed one of the conversions.
Game 3 – Player Changes May Prove Significant
Dragons forward player Jack De Belin has been added to the Blues team as a result of a number of serious injury concerns in camp New South Wales. Captain Boyd Cordner (calf injury), James Tedesco (ankle injury), Tyson Frizell (ribs, back and ankle injuries) and Josh Dugan (knee injury) are all facing potential challenges heading into the series decider on 12 July.
Said coach Laurie Daley concerning the injuries, “there are some concerns there but we thought we’d give the guys an opportunity to prove their fitness.”
As opposed to the injury ridden Blues team, Queensland seems to be stacking up the odds on their side as well with the expected inclusion of up to 8 rookies in the squad for the 2017 series.
