The New South Wales footy gods have today decided to take matters into their own hands.

Hosting the second game in the Women’s State of Origin Series, the deities that look over the game of rugby league down south have turned on an absolute day for some interstate footy.

Fresh off the back of a win in at the spiritual home of Rugby League in Brissy, the NSW Blues are hoping to wrap the series up with a win in Newcastle tonight.

Following a tough night for the state and NSW rugby league yesterday, the cockroaches are hoping that the ladies can avenge that loss and put the state back on top.

And it looks like they could conditions couldn’t be better, with a crispy 14 degrees and pouring rain expected for kick off at McDonald Jones Stadium in a few hours.

“You couldn’t ask for better conditions then this,” said local Newcastle footy fan Hamilton Broadmeadow enjoying a nice cold schooner at the Cranchor this evening.

“We love it,” said the main expected to join the sell out record crowd tonight.

The sell out at the 33,000 capacity stadium will be a record for women’s State of Origin, and is expected to draw more than the 4 million eyeballs that tuned into Game 1 on TV.

The Blues will be lead up front by powerhouses Millie Elliot and Caitlin Johnston who brought a maiden NRLW premiership to the Hunter.

The pair are expected to give Queensland fullback and former teammate Tamika Upton a welcome back to coal and wine country.

“I’m looking forward to the two best front rowers in the game coming back to Newy and getting it done for the state,” said Broadmeadow.

“Caitlin Johnston, aka Belmont’s finest, is ready to relish in these local conditions.”

“Yazzy’s crashing over too.”

“This is Origin footy.”
