Hayne: Blues Can Go Back-to-Back


Jarryd Hayne won’t be a part of State of Origin 2015 as he chases his NFL dream with the San Francisco 49ers but that hasn’t stopped the former New South Wales fullback from penning a piece for The Sydney Morning Herald ahead of Origin I on Wednesday night.

The Dally M Medalist believes this Blues outfit can overcome Queensland and go back-to-back in 2015.

“In the minutes that matter most, your mind is the toughest opponent on the field. For so long, ending Queensland’s eight-year winning streak that caused so much heartache was the motivation” Hayne writes.

“For this group in 2015, filled with so much young talent, it won’t be.

“I have no doubt in my mind they have what it takes to be Origin players for a long time and lead NSW in the next decade.

“Right now, they are on top of the mountain. But it is a lot easier to fall down the mountain than it is to climb it. Staying at the top is the battle; a battle they were born to fight.

“Preparation only gets you so far, because nothing can prepare you for what happens on a field during Origin.”
