Melbourne Storm stars Billy Slater and Cameron Smith have once again been selected to represent Queensland in State-Of-Origin Two, as has Matt King for New South Wales for the clash at Telstra Stadium on June 15.
Storm�s three Origin reps have been sensational against St. George Illawarra and Wests since returning from Game One action and thoroughly deserve their recalls.
Wins over a Dragons outfit who had won five games in a row, and the Tigers who Storm had never beaten at Leichhardt Oval, has put Melbourne�s season back on track after an inconsistent six week period.
After a classic Origin One where a Matt Bowen try won it for Queensland in extra time, Slater knows NSW will come out fighting in Game Two.
�New South Wales have their backs against the wall,� Slater told AAP.
"It will be a bit like us last year, when we had our backs against the wall. Sometimes that's when you play your best football."
However, the fullback was confident the Maroon�s can finish the job at Telstra Stadium.
"The more losses you get the closer you are to a win," he said of Queensland's record of just one draw from nine appearances at the ground.
"That's a factor, but we're up one-nil now and we'll be going into the game with confidence.
"It's going to be a great match again, I can't really see where the weaknesses are in both sides.
"I think it's a possession thing, whoever turns up on the night will get away with it.
"That's rugby league - whoever holds the ball generally comes out on top."
