WATCH: ‘Psychic’ echidna predicts who will win State of Origin

The Maroons are the underdogs heading into Game Two of the State of Origin series, but according to a Queensland echidna, the men in maroon look like they’ve got it in the bag.

The spiny anteater tested its psychic powers today with an attempt at predicting the winner of Game Two in Brisbane on Sunday.

And to the delight of Queensland footy fans, the Maroons emerged as the victors.


To make his prediction, the Echidna was presented with two State of Origin bowls that he could pick from before he went straight for Queensland’s dish.

The Queensland Government’s Environment Twitter page posted the light-hearted video on Friday as excitement builds ahead of the weekend showdown.

“State of Origin Game II is this Sunday night, but you don’t even need to watch the game to find out the winner,” they wrote.

“We already know the result.”
