Origin pressure on NSW - Queensland coach

7:58 am on 26 May 2010

Queensland rugby league coach Mal Meninga says all the pressure is on New South Wales to end Queensland's dominance in the opening match of the 2010 State of Origin series in Sydney on Wednesday night.

Queensland has already created history with an unprecedented fourth consecutive series win last year.

Meninga says Queensland is heading into the match full of confidence, despite the Maroons' loss in game three last year.

He expects a physical battle, with the game likely to come down to who wants the win the most.
