Country Origin v City Origin
Sunday, May 7, 4pm (AEST), Glen Willow Oval, Mudgee

There’s no sugar-coating it, the time-honoured fixture between Country and City has become a laugh stock, with certain NRL coaches refusing to let players take part in the final Country v City fixture. City were forced to delay the announcement of their team as they struggled to field 17 players. City have named players like Hame Sele, Pauli Pauli and Jake Marketo, who are nothing more than fringe players in their respective clubs top 17. It’s a kick in the guts to Country football and The Wolf is predicting that they’ll make City pay on the football field.
The last five City-Country matches have been split evenly with two wins apiece and a draw. City won last year 44-30 in a real try-fest with Aaron Gray posting four. Country won the year prior 34-22. Country have posted at least 26 points for three straight years. City have posted just one score above 26 in the last seven years.
Stats That Matter
City have won 14 of the 25 matches played all-time since the match moved to an Origin format. City won the last match played in Mudgee 24-22 back in 2012. The last three matches between the sides have tallied 52 points or more with seven of the last nine totalling 44-plus. There have been two drawn matches in the last decade.
Final Thoughts
Overs, Overs, Overs! The Wolf is expecting both sides to want to put on a spectacle in the final Country-City clash and defence won’t be a high priority for either side. The stats point to a high-scoring affair, while Country will want to make sure they’re on the right side of the scoreboard for the Mudgee locals.
