A tough Origin to call

Get your scarf and your pie ready (or if you’re Gladys Berejiklian grab your beanie and Coke Zero…), it’s State of Origin time – and rivalry between the NSW Blues and the Queensland Maroons is at an all-time high. Game One of this year’s series kicks off tonight – it’s on Blues’ turf in Sydney and despite a home crowd advantage, pundits say they haven’t got an easy job with the Maroons holding the Shield and looking to take a third series on the hop. Even the betting agencies are finding it a tough game to predict, with injuries in the Maroons side and the new recruits in the Blues’ line-up. Perhaps easier to call will be the Women’s Game 2 in Newcastle tomorrow night, given the Sky Blues’ trouncing of the Maroon girls a couple of weeks ago. But who are we to speculate… Catch all the action on Channel 9.
