Will Blues finally triumph?

WILL the Queensland Maroons be in seventh heaven or will the NSW Blues finally break the drought?

Tonight, pride is on the line for every blue-blooded New South Welshman and maroon-made Queenslander as 80 minutes of fast-paced, hard-hitting footy will determine which team is victori- ous and which one leaves the field empty handed in the highly anticipated 2012 State of Origin decider.

Keith Harris of Footy Fever is convinced he knows who the winners will be.

A passionate Blues fan, Keith is upbeat 2012 is the year NSW will regain Origin glory, albeit in a tightly contested game.

"I think the Blues will win the decider by four points," he said.

"Footy Fever has sold plenty of NSW supporters' gear. I think the Blues can stop the Maroons winning a seventh straight series."

However, Michael and Michele Johnstone of nextra Grafton Shoppingworld Newsagency were quick to counter Keith's blue outlook.

As devoted Maroons supporters, the couple are counting on Mal Meninga's boys to sweep seven in a row at Suncorp Stadium tonight.

"We have a lot of confidence in the team's ability and I think Queensland will win tonight by six points," Michele said.
