Maroons 'fit and ready', says strike weapon Inglis




ARGUABLY Queenslands greatest attacking weapon in this State of Origin series centre Greg Inglis says the Maroons are fit and ready to take on New South Wales in next Wednesdays third and deciding match.


All of our players are healthy and fine, so there are no injury concerns whatsoever, he said.


And like I said before, the first few days (are the) recovery sessions but we are on the field this afternoon and it all starts from there, so our process and preparations starts from here on in.


Speaking from Queenslands Camp Maroon base at Coolum, the imposing back said this third game of the Holden State of Origin series would be one of biggest games of his career.


Being played in front of a sell-out crowd at Sydneys ANZ Stadium; both teams will have the chance to create history with a series win.


I think it definitely is up there, Inglis said.


There has been a lot of hype and a lot of attraction to it right across the world, not just in Australia but in all sporting areas.


Out of all the years I have been part of (deciders) this is probably one of the most-watched series.


Maroons five-eighth Johnathan Thurston agreed with his teammates assessment; and called on Queenslanders travelling to the stadium to show their support for the team during the crucial match.


Its very important, its probably the most important game we will ever play, Thurston said.


We are certainly down there in enemy territory for the decider, so hopefully we can get a lot of Queenslanders down there wearing Maroon for us and supporting us.
