NSW v Queensland State of Origin Game 3 Predictions & Tips (Wednesday 11:10 GMT)
Suffering a series whitewash is always degrading and humiliating, and Queensland are on the verge of finding out what it is like. To make matters worse, if they do lose 3-0 it will be the first time in State of Origin history that the Maroons have lost every game in a series that has been held on their own patch. Due to the world we are living in, all three matches will have been played in Queensland – so if you think this is just a regular dead rubber, then think again. Queensland loves making history and setting records, but this will be one they won’t want to go on their resume. In the opening two games, NSW have scored 76 points and have conceded just six. Back in 2020, it was reported that a former Blues captain had stated that the Queensland side in that series was the worst in history and that poor side went on to win the series and took a lot of pleasure in that. The ex-player was 12 months too early because I think the Maroons side in 2021 is definitely the worst. Yes, they have had injuries and other matters to tend to, but there doesn’t seem to be any passion or fight – something they pride themselves on. NSW will be without Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai with both Penrith stars out injured, so the halfback pairing will be Mitch Moses and Jack Wighton. The Maroons will be without Jai Arrow for off-the-field shenanigans, although Kalyn Ponga has been named at full-back for his first start of the series. I would like the Maroons to make it 2-1 and not have that unwanted record on their backs forever, but confidence in the Blues camp is at an all-time high I am backing the Blues to cruise to another victory, as I just don’t think Queensland have what it takes under Paul Green. When you have a backline that consists of James Tedesco, Brian To’o, Latrell Mitchell, Tom Trbojevic and Josh Addo-Carr, then you are going to post plenty of points. I am backing Manly superstar Trbojevic to grab the first try of the game and take his 2021 series tally to five.
