Kicking in Origin football is so much more important than it is at club level. Origin is a war of attrition that is always decided by field position. Finding clear turf is essential. Burying the opponent in the corners is necessary. Repeat sets are golden. Queensland have proven masters over the last decade but must now do so without the magic of Johnathan Thurston. If one aspect of Mitchell Pearce’s game has been maligned, it has been his appalling kicking.
