With State of Origin II just one sleep away, fans can look forward to another exciting game of Rugby League with the weather forecast predicted as partly cloudy for most of the day with minimal chance of rain.

The first half of Game One was said to be one of the most fast-paced halves in Origin history - and expectations will be high for another strong opening with minimum chance of rainfall and the ground preparation assuring a much dryer surface.

ANZ Stadium Head Curator Graeme Logan will be laying a dew suppressant which will alleviate a significant amount of moisture, which will make for another highly dynamic game of footy come 8pm tomorrow night.

With the NSW VB Blues completing at 92 per cent in Origin I, the conditions are set for another disciplined performance from Laurie Daley’s men - and the opportunity for NSW to showcase their vast array of attacking prowess with the likes of James Tedesco, Jarryd Hayne and Mitchell Pearce taking the field.

Light winds are predicted to become southerly throughout the middle of the day but are expected to significantly decrease come kick-off time, so expect sharpshooter James Maloney to be at his goal-kicking best.

With a top of 19 degrees for tomorrow and an expected temperature of 17 degrees at kick-off time, fans are recommended to be decked with a scarf and jumper to enjoy the game the best possible way.
