State of Origin Game 2 has Gone West, historically being staged at Perth’s Optus Stadium. Queensland is looking to snatch the series in 2 games and snatch back the trophy from the Blues.

Injuries, questionable form, rumoured off-field distractions and good old fashioned bed wetting has seen the Blues make seven changes to their side.

Latrell Mitchell’s omission from the side is perhaps the change which has stunned most, including Origin veteran Robbie Kearns.

“I can’t believe New South Wales have left Latrell Mitchell out of game 2. It’s a do or die game, he’s the best center in the business,” Kearns tells David Morrow and Mat Thompson.

“It’s crazy to think they were probably 1 pass away from winning that game”

One change he is ‘really pleased’, with is the addition of Dale Finucane.

“(He’s been playing) outstanding football for the last 5-6 years”
