Queensland Origin Team "Battered, Bruised And Tired" Says Matty Johns
Matty Johns says the Queensland Origin team is battered, bruised and tired as Ricky Stuart's Blues get ready for the Brisbane Origin decider.
"They remind me of a great heavyweight champion that's walking out to the middle of the ring, it's the 15th round, they're battered, they're bruised and they're tired and you say here's the end," Matty told Triple M Sydney.
Matty Johns says he sees a "certainty" in the Blues camp that they can win the July 4 nail-biter.
When asked if we are starting to see cracks in the QLD side after their six successive-Origin series wins, Matty said it all comes down to Ricky Stuart.
"Ricky Stuart gets under Mal Meninga's skin more than anyone else in the world. He did it when he was a teammate of his at Canberra and he's doing it again now," Matty added.
"More importantly he's once again showed this state what State Of Origin is all about, it's more than just a game."
