In The Clear NRL Podcast co-host Chris Boulous says NSW should fear a wounded Queensland outfit for game two of the series.

“I think after Wednesday night, everyone thinks NSW have won the series. But Queensland love that  – they were in the exact same situation last year,” he said.

“Billy Slater will come back, they will pick Matt Scott and Matt Gillett could also return. It will make a big difference.

“NSW need to go up another level to win the series. Their forwards got bashed; they need to address that.”

This week, group digital journalist Josh Bartlett joins the In The Clear NRL Podcast to recap Origin I and look ahead to game two in Sydney.

Later in the podcast the lads preview the round 14 NRL matches with the Rabbitohs, Roosters, Cowboys and Storm the more fancied options.
