Optimum conditions for the second State of Origin match

Kim Westcott, Wednesday June 26, 2013 - 14:11 EST

Tonight's second State of Origin game will be played under great conditions both for players and those in the stands.

The conditions will suit the players with light west-south-westerly winds. There will be low chance of dew on the field, so dropped passes cannot be blamed on a slippery ball.

For those at the game, it will be a mild night with temperatures around 14 degrees by kick off. By the end of the game, the temperature will only have dropped by one degree. Rain will not affect the game either so bulky jackets and umbrellas can be safely left at home.

With excellent weather it should be a fast game for players and exciting game for spectators.
