Friday Fever: Origin II preview
Brad Fittler, Bill Woods and special guest Matt Ballin bring us Friday Fever this week, and the boys preview Holden State of Origin II.
Freddy is worried about the Blues' recent record at Suncorp Stadium, but still backs NSW to record an elusive away win.
"Their record is awful recently up there and that's got to play in the back of their minds for New South Wales," Fittler said.
"It would be great to get a victory up there. It would be a real show of strength.
"There are some famous people in those jerseys, Thurston and all these blokes, but they're just people in jerseys. They're good players but they're not unbeatable."
Injured Wests Tigers hooker Ballin said the parochial Queensland crowd would play a big part in potentially another series win for the Maroons.
"The biggest difference between Suncorp Stadium and ANZ Stadium is the crowd," Ballin said.
"At Suncorp they're close – they're seated really close to the ground. When you're warming up as players you can hear the crowd interacting with you."
Watch this week's edition of Friday Fever as the panel also gives their thoughts on Round 15 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.
