NSW are heavy favourites tonight…

It's hard to remember a match that, on paper, has appeared more obvious in terms of the outcome. But we have seen this before, back in 1995, when the Maroons stunned NSW over three games.

But now NSW are on track for three in a row and they have top-liners galore, headlined by the Roosters wizard James Tedesco. Love your thoughts on the contest:

Origin I has finally arrived…

We've had COVID, we've had a disrupted season, we've had injuries, suspensions and general rugby league madness. Now we finally arrive at State of Origin, the same week as the Melbourne Cup and coming to you from the Adelaide Oval.
