Queensland crush NSW to seal series win on home soil

Following their 26-18 victory in Game One in Adelaide, the Maroons attacked the game with confidence and enthusiasm in front of a crowd of 52,433 at Suncorp Stadium.

Skipper Daly Cherry-Evans played a starring role, fullback Reece Walsh found a new level after his Origin debut in Game One, while centre Valentine Holmes did much of the damage on the scoreboard with a personal double. 

After reverting to the bench before kick-off, prop Lindsay Collins powered through for 135 metres on his way to Player of the Match honours.

Maroons v Blues: Potential late changes for both sides

Both sides have been forced into changes due to injury so the line-ups will look vastly different to those took the field in Game One, with the Blues losing star playmaker Nathan Cleary and the Maroons missing forwards Jai Arrow and Tom Gilbert.

The 17 men who take the field for Queensland will have the advantage of doing it on home soil in front of a boisterous Suncorp Stadium crowd, with history showing the Blues face a monumental task to keep the series alive.
