Game 2 Breakdown
State of Origin Game II will kick off in on the 21.06.17 with Game 2 to be hosted by NSW at ANZ Stadium. The BLUES will be all fired up after winning comfortably in Game 1 up at Suncorp. The Queenslander's have named a new squad with some top name players like Sam Thiaday missing out on a start. Billy the kid and Thurston will return for Game 2, so expect a bold showing from the Mighty Maroons!
In Game I the Maroons had made 6 errors or the Blues 4 and the blues doubled the amount of Line Breaks thanks to Andrew Fifita. Queensland will need to win this game to keep the series alive and I think they have picked the squad that can knock the Blues young fresh legs over.
