State of Origin Game III 2012 – Predictions

Game III of the 2012 State of Origin series is almost here, so just like for Game I and II, we’ve rounded up the entire WPW crew for their predictions for the match.


Who’s going to win Game 3 and why?


Matt: NSW by 6 – They want it more, plain and simple. I can’t believe the rubbish that QLD are more hungry this year, they have nothing to prove and they know it. Farah, Pearce and Gallen to dominate and big T-Rex to prove unstoppable.

Adrian: NSW by 1 – They have to win. This is the best chance they’ve got at winning at Suncorp. It isn’t going to be easy, but their time is now.

James: QLD by 10 – As much as I hate to say it, I can see the same old story repeating itself again. The Maroons are farewelling big Petero, and whilst Billy Slater might be out, they’ve got a fairly handy replacement at fullback in GI. The Blues played fantastically in game 2, but still just snuck over the line, and I think the Maroons will turn it on up there on home turf.

Tomo: QLD BY 6 – While it was nice that NSW got a win in Game 2, current history would suggest that QLD could and should win this deciding game. It’s nice to think a Game 3 finally matters after what seems like forever. Whatever the result, it should be a blast!

David: QLD BY 8 Seems like a bit of a repeat of last year. 8 for 7 series in a row.

So there you have it! For those wondering how accurate our predictions were last time, click here to see what we thought would happen in Game II. James was spot on in Game I, while Adrian was in Game II – can they make it three in a row?
