Wednesday's first State Of Origin match is now heading north to Townsville and make no mistake, this will benefit the defending champs who will look to lock it up in the first two games, both now on home soil. 

New South Wales will be keen to make amends for dropping the first game last year in Adelaide which ultimately put them on the backfoot for the rest of the series.

Origin is traditionally pretty tight, but with some slick players involved, points could come early on the fringes with some classy centres from both sides. 

State of Origin Game 1 First Try Scorer Tips - Best Bet: Tom Trbojevic


The in-form player of the NRL returns to the State Of Origin arena after missing 2020 due to injury, but he did dominate the 2019 series in the centres. 

A freak talent who stands at 194cm, Trbojevic can prove to be even more dangerous considering Queensland's centre woes and he's arguably in career best form at present.

With eight tries and 12 try assists in just seven games of State Of Origin, his strike rate is terrific for New South Wales and at the current quote, he's jumping off the page to score the first try in Townsville on Wednesday night.

State of Origin Game 1 First Try Scorer Tips - Next Best: Latrell Mitchell

The South Sydney superstar is set to make a big impact with a lot to prove after being left out of the squad for the final two games in 2019 and missing last year due to injury. 

A natural footballer no matter where you put him and centre is where he cut his teeth, Mitchell has recorded five tries in eight origin appearances, proving he knows how to find the line.

If the ascendancy is with New South Wales early, he will look to impose himself into the game early with a strong run and good luck if you’re one on one close to the line against this freakish talent. 

State of Origin Game 1 First Try Scorer Tips - Value Bet: David Fifita

The value bet was a no-brainer as we search for a fringe player who could break the line and hit a hole, with the best in the business being the ever destructive Queenslander - David Fifita.

Missing last year due to injury, the million dollar man has 78 tackle breaks this year and sits at the top of the ladder, an incredible stat considering the next forward in the NRL comes in at 26th on that ladder with 41. 

The icing on the cake is his try-scoring ability, with Fifita having crossed the white line in nine of his 10 games, so at the early odds on offer, he has to warrant consideration.
