Daley and Blues braced for improved Maroons in Origin II

Turn them around and getting a good kick-chase to try to get us in good field position [will help] to limit [Slater's] opportunities in his half.

His unbelievable display was typified following his try, which wrapped up the game, with Fifita strolling back to the bench like a peacock, silencing the usually parochial Brisbane crowd.

Woods said while Queensland's props were short on Origin experience, they had plenty of big matches under their belt.

"There is nothing better than thriving off negative comments and walking back (after a try) in front of a house full of people who dislike you", Fifita said.

"There is a bit of arrogance and cockiness you've got to take into a game but at the same time you block the nerves away and get on with it".

Left out of the Maroons' Origin I caning - due in part to concerns over his perceived hesitancy in defence after nearly two years out of the game - Slater is bracing for a torrid reception from the Blues, who have identified his injury as a focal point on Wednesday night. In Origins in the past, where NSW has done well against Billy is they've got down there on Billy - the kick-chase has been awesome - and really got into [him]. "I just hope they stick to the same systems they do".

"I just don't think it's in the right spirit to use the referees to influence the game in some way". They're the things that go unnoticed when it comes to stats. "I suppose it's going to be different for game two".

Escaped Georgia Inmates Captured
Rowe and DuBose wrecked the Jeep near the 91 mile marker, according to the THP, and fled into the woods alongside the interstate. The sheriff said he's watched the bus video on a cellphone, and couldn't immediately tell which inmate fired the fatal shots.

Fifita said such smugness from the Sydney media only made his side's task more hard. And we know against Queensland, we can't be negative with the ball. "If I had all that negative stuff, I would be thriving off it and proving to everyone I am someone", he said.

Kimmorley heaped praise on the VB Blues' boot-to-ball options in the first Origin fixture, but insisted the job would become harder with the inclusion of Billy Slater in the no.1 jersey for the Maroons. Just ref the game the same as they did in the first game.

Finding a counter for Fifita also shapes as key to Queensland's hopes of sending the series to a decider.

"The main thing is it's at home, I want to win here and it's a bonus we got the win up there".

And those thoughts must have been running through Walters' mind when Thurston went to ground after colliding with a Souths Logan player yesterday. I'd never won at Suncorp Stadium in my Origin career.

"We have a lot of respect for referees".
