THE Kynaston brothers have insider knowledge into tonight's must-win State of Origin clash.

The pair is confident Queensland will come out on top, and their opinion is a worthy one, as they spent time with the Maroons squad just last week.

The boys met their Origin idols and had a training session with former Origin great Alfie Langer after their grandad, Gordon Read, won the Jeep FanCam competition.

"We met pretty much everyone," big brother Cody said yesterday.

The kids aren't bragging when they say they met the whole team, as Blake has the signature proof on his shirt.

"So it's Billy Slater, Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk, Corey Parker, Johnathan Thurston and Daly Cherry-Evans ," he said pointing to each name on his maroon jersey.

Blake predicts tonight's match will be close.

But his team-mate Fletcher Clarke is tipping a strong performance from the Queensland camp.

"I think we will win by 14," he said.
