Matty Johns: The One Area Where NSW Need To Win The Battle Over Queensland

Rugby League's biggest and greatest rivalry is renewed tonight when the NSW Blues clash with the Queensland Maroons, at the MCG.  

The 37th annual State of Origin series has already seen a monumental shift, with the Blues to blood 11 debutants in Origin 1. 

While for the Maroons, it will be for the first time since Game 2 2003 that either Cameron Smith, Billy Slater, Johnathan Thurston or Cooper Cronk will not feature for Queensland. 

It certainly is the dawn of the new era for Origin, with a big unknown heading into the opening game.

Triple M Grill Team's Matty Johns has dissected where he believes the game will be won and lost for both sides.
