    NSW will win because we have the better forwards, and forwards win Origin matches.

    I am in two minds.

    QLD have never won at Telstra though that one is eventually going to happen. Their backs are more penetrative and we will miss Minichiello at the back.

    it is up to the NSW forwards to match the speed of the QLDers. I am nervous about the selection of Anasta at 5/8 as his form has been ordinary and Lockyer and Thurston have been on fire.

    If the NSW pack can slow down the opposition we can restrict the room that the toad's backs get but if they get on a roll it could be carnage.

    The way that the young guys handle the task could also affect the outcome - a couple could choke!!!

    QLD

    Reason: Gower and Anasta, not enough points in them.

    NSW

    Mason will carve it up, is having a massive year and will continue it in this game. Forwards too powerful, and Gower will be able to find the right people. Anasta to play a strong running game

    QLD unfortunately. That backline is just too good imo. Underrated forward pack, and a sensational backline.
