Blues Stat Attack: The Blues have not lost to Queensland since 2014. It’s a stat their men’s counterparts can only look upon with envy. Last year’s 22-6 win was their biggest margin victory over the Maroons in interstate challenge history.
Maroons Stat Attack: Maroons halfback Ali Brigginshaw will be a key contributor to the Maroons getting some points on the board on Friday night. After a stellar performance at the World Cup last year with 10 try assists and nine line-breaks Brigginshaw will be looking to carry that form into the clash against the Blues.
The Blues will be led by the talented Maddison Studdon. New South Wales have clawed their way back after a 17-year Queensland dominance and currently hold the title after last season’s 22-6 victory in Wollongong. Although the blues have been hit with injury, they still have plenty of class and experience to make it three in a row against the Maroons.
