Game Preview:
Both sides are hot and cold and also both sides haven’t shown their full potential in 2018. 
This week they come up against each other and whoever wins this match could start to cement themselves in the top 8 for the Origin period. 



Key Match Up:
The main match up in this match I’m looking forward to is the battle of the number 9s. 

With the representative retirement of Maroons skipper Cameron Smith their is some big shoes to fill at State level and Jake Friend and Andrew McCullough are sure to be right at the fire front of Coach Kevin Walters mind to replace Smith. 

It just so happens that this week was when Smith announced his retirement and as fate would have it Friend and McCullough face off in the same week! 

What an intriguing situation this has turned out to be!

Nath’s Prediction:
Roosters by 8
