Who will win State of Origin Game 3?

What a showdown this promises to be. The Maroons are at home and will be backed by a hugely partisan crowd. The Blues have momentum on their side and we believe the better line-up on paper.

We're really not sure which way to go with this one. Last year, James Tedesco sealed the series with a last-minute try. We think this will be another close clash and maybe it's the Queenslanders' turn to end a two-series losing run and pinch back the shield.
