It's been achievement after achievement for Isaah Yeo in recent years and now the St John's junior has the chance to help create State of Origin history.
No NSW side has ever secured a series victory by winning twice in Queensland before they even get to play in their own state.
But after a massive 50-6 win in the opening match of this year's series at Townsville, the Blues head into Sunday night's match at Brisbane as big favourites.
Yeo will again start at lock after completing a strong 80-minute performance in game one.
The Penrith Panthers co-captain helped give NSW another dimension in offence at Townsville with his ball skills in the middle of the park helping his side's major attacking weapons thrive.
Yeo and the Blues forwards dominated game one and the platform they set up front laid the foundation for success and the pack is out to do the same thing on Sunday night.
"We play an expansive type of footy at the Blues but you can't do that unless you lay a platform in the middle," NSW prop Junior Paulo told NRL.com.
There's been one change to the NSW side which will play on Sunday night, with Angus Crichton joining the squad in place of the injured Jake Trbojevic.
He will be the lone back-row forward on the bench, something that points to Yeo facing another 80 minutes in game two.
"I have complete faith in this pack," Crichton said to NRL.com after his recall.
"We will work hard on uniting as a great pack of forwards and lay the foundation for our backs.
"We've got so many leaders in our forwards."
Queensland has been bolstered by the return of enforcer Josh Papal'ii while Christian Welch is expected to have a bigger role after he departed game one early due to a head knock.
Orange junior Jack Wighton will again start on the bench for NSW.
Kick-off is scheduled for 7.50pm.
