Despite all the injury concerns, the Blues are set to go with the same 17 for all three games of State of Origin for the first time since 1996.
If they can get their interchanges right, the Blues boast a considerable advantage on the bench. Take nothing away from the Maroons, but it's clear NSW have more game‑breakers at their bench.
Wade Graham is the man most likely to turn the game on its head and he has already showed what he is capable of in Game One with a try assist and several classy touches in attack.
Meanwhile the Maroons are set to farewell Jonathan Thurston and possibly Cooper Cronk and they have won 10 of the past 11 series.
The Maroons trump card is the Storm connection which includes Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk, Cameron Smith, Will Chambers, Tim Glasby and Cameron Munster.
Suncorp Stadium has been a happy hunting ground for the Maroons with eight wins from their past 10 matches at the venue.
The Maroons will host the Blues at 10 tonight.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
