The second game of the State Of Origin 2019 series is about to start.
The New South Wales Blues will lose the series if they suffer another defeat after Queensland's 18-14 win at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane earlier this month.
If the Blues can take the win, the series will be decided in Sydney in July.
Fans have already started filling the stadium awaiting tonight's match.

The idea is that Jarrod Wallace will finally make the most of State of Origin's opportunity, according to Queensland assistant Justin Hodges.
A media estimate has been placed on Wallace before Sunday & # 39; s Origin II in Perth, while the Gold Coast Titans Titans are preparing to have his football return the conversation in his Maroons.
Wallace was dropped for Queensland's opening victory after a quiet start for NRL club Gold Coast and criticism of his Origin efforts in 2018.
Hodges said that Wallace now has the chance to silence his critics when he comes off the couch in his sixth Origin.
& # 39; He got his chance last year and let it go & # 39 ;, Hodges said.
& # 39; That's what happens in Origin football, you miss those moments because the game goes so fast.
& # 39; But he now understands. He'll be fine. & # 39;
Wallace came under fire last year for his screenings as a starting prop, while he managed 52 meters in game one and 43 meters in Origin II before producing 82 meters after relegating to the bench for the dead rubber.

Hodges also supported Dylan Napa to shoot despite the starting prop that took care of a broken wrist.
& # 39; He has an injury, but he is doing well. All week he did all the tests he had to do, & he said.
& # 39; And once you get there and the adrenaline flows, you only feel the problems after the game.
& # 39; We support him, he was honest with us during the week.
& # 39; But you must have a & # 39; n player on your side; he is very intimidating. & # 39;
Hodges also agreed that after a serious allergic reaction, Moses Mbye was in a & # 39; bad way & # 39; but says that nothing will stop the use in Perth's State of Origin II.

Maroon's team physician Matt Hislop found Mbye seated on the floor at the team's Perth hotel on Friday morning after the West Tigers captain called for help.
It is believed that Mbye ended up in an anaphylactic shock and his airways were closed before Hislop breathed new life into the 25-year-old with an anti-allergy injection of EpiPen.
Remarkably, Mbye will run out just 48 hours after the terrifying fear of Queensland.
While former Queensland Captain Cameron Smith believes that Kalyn Ponga will harm the Blues.
Ponga, 21, has already been praised as a 10-year-old player by former Maroons

& # 39; I played him alone against Newcastle last week and I can tell you that every time he got the ball, I got a little nervous, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; But it's good that Queensland has a guy with those skills.
& # 39; If I feel that (fear) and my Storm teammates feel that, then I hope the Blues feel that on Sunday. & # 39;
Despite the confidence of the Maroons, NSW star Tom Trbojevic is adamant and can replicate his success as a Kangaroos center to State of Origin in Sunday's must-win sclash against Queensland.

Trbojevic makes his first start in the three-quarter round for the Blues after being chosen to replace the game, a choice of Josh Morris.
The Manly wing defender was apparently a slot for the Blues in the run-up to the series, but missed eight games early in the NRL season with a hamstring injury.
Hardly two games in his return, Blues coach Brad Fittler did not hesitate to bring Trbojevic back to the team for game two at the Optus Stadium in Perth.
Trbojevic was sure that he would justify Fittler's faith.
& # 39; I have really good staff at Manly which made me return fully fit and confident, but it's not like playing footy & # 39 ;, he told AAP.
Trbojevic & # 39; s selection in the centers was somewhat shocking after a strong attempt by Morris, who came from representative retirement and scored a try in Origin I.
And while some consider the decision a gamble, Trbojevic will use his experience at the centers for the Kangaroos last year.
While Queensland caused the most damage in the first part of the game, Trbojevic is wary of their potential on the field.
He has scored three attempts on so many tests that started in the position.
& # 39; Yes, you get a lot of confidence by playing in that position in that position. You become familiar with playing in those positions the more games you play, & he said.
& # 39; You've done the work before, so I'm looking forward to doing it again. & # 39;
The 22-year-old has the ominous task of defending himself against the deadly left edge of Queensland by Cameron Munster, Michael Morgan and Corey Oates.
The star of the Ponga Maroons is also often in favor of going to that channel.
And while Queensland did the most damage in the first part of the game in the first game, Trbojevic is wary of their assets on his side of the field.
& # 39; They look pretty hard. They are of course good players, & he said.
