I cannot believe some of the junk being written about the first State of Origin. Many in Qld are labelling this Blues side as one of the Worst ever. ppplllllleeeeaaaase. This Blues side is one that can kill the Qld. They have a decided advantage on the outer edges with Gasnier and Jennings poised to wreak some havoc, against Tonga and Nielson. The Forward packs has a hard edge to it, with Bird, Scott and Gallon and the form halves in Soward and Mitchell Pearce.
Qld need to be very careful is all this scribe will say. In fact I would be suggesting to take the 13+ odds on the Blues.
