When: 17:30 | Saturday 24/06/2017
Where: GIO Stadium
Both teams are coming off a break but I can’t pinpoint either team relishing it more than the other.
The Raiders though are coming off some big losses, so it would have been good for them to reset.
Ricky would have given the boys some time off and then got back in with some hard training getting them ready for the game.
One of the forwards, Shannon Boyd will need to get the guys on the front foot and give his backs some room to move around in the attacking 20.
Overall, this is going to be an upfront battle for both teams and Sam Thaiday will want to show the Queensland selectors he isn’t finished as a representative player.
Tough game for the Broncos Origin players backing up, as it’s going to be freezing in Canberra.
It really takes a lot out of you physically and mentally when you’re playing for 80 minutes of Origin football and then backing up in conditions in Canberra.
With the Raiders being fresh and having a full squad, they will put plenty on Brisbane.
Canberra at $1.57
Brisbane at $2.43
Tip: Canberra at $1.57
Line tip: Canberra -4.5
