State of Origin 2018 Game 1 was billed as one of the most anticipated games in State of Origin history and the series opener in Melbourne didn’t disappoint! Both teams were raring to go before the siren rang. Last year’s winners, the QLD Maroons, a team largely consisting of battle-hardened veterans were looking to make it four Origin series victories in a row against what the media had dubbed the ‘Baby Blues’. Rookie NSW coach and former Blues Origin player, Brad Fittler, had named an extremely inexperienced side for Game I; featuring an incredible 13 Origin debutants. Despite the Blues’ inexperienced lineup, there was a tonne of excitement and hope that this new-look NSW side could break the Maroons’ stranglehold on the series, with many pundits predicting that the Blues – no longer bearing the physical and mental scars of previous defeats – would be able to finally play with the freedom and flair required to bring down the mighty Maroons. By the end of the final siren the Baby Blues lived up to the hype taking a 10 – point win over the Maroons with outstanding play making and gritty plays. It was not, however, an easy game for the Blues as the Maroons did their best to keep the game close til the final siren. The 87,112 league fanatics who showed up at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) certainly got their money’s worth of entertainment. Can we expect next years games to be just as thrilling? If history is an indicator then the answer is yes!
