  1. James Tedesco (Fullback)

Didn’t reach the heroics of Game I or II but was still outstanding for the Blues: 8/10

  1. Tom Trbojevic (Wing)

Third times a charm. Tom Trbojevic’s best Origin performance to date. Was among the Blues best: 8.5/10

  1. Latrell Mitchell (Centre)

Another player who didn’t reach the heroic levels he achieved in Game I and II. Only three caries of the football, should have been better: 3/10

  1. James Roberts (Centre)

A sound performance let’s see how he goes next series: 6/10

  1. Josh Addo-Carr (Wing)

This guy is dangerous every time he touches the footy: 7.5/10

  1. James Maloney (Five-Eighth)

Didn’t relive his Game I and II heroics – otherwise he’d have possibly been named player of the series – was quite poor, however: 3.5/10

  1. Nathan Cleary (Halfback)

Did his job and covered a lot of territory, again. Probably his best performance this series: 6.5/10

  1. David Klemmer (Prop)

One of New South Wales’ best. Only Blues forward to crack 100 metres with ball in hand: 7.5/10

  1. Damien Cook (Hooker)

New South Wales’ best. Possibly player of the series: 8.5/10

  1. Paul Vaughn (Prop)

Only played 25 minutes but one hit up is unacceptable for a starting front rower at this level of the game: 2/10

  1. Boyd Cordner (Second Row)

The skipped did his best to lead from the front: 6.5/10

  1. Tyson Frizell (Second Row)

Not his best performance but showed signs of improvement: 5.5/10

  1. Jake Trbojevic (Lock)

New South Wales best forward along with Klemmer: 7/10

14. Jack De Belin (Interchange)

Strong input off the bench: 6.5/10

  1. Tariq Sims (Interchange)

Nice to see him finally make his debut in the Blue jersey after the rough trot he’s been through, but a brain snap lead to a Queensland victory: 4/10

  1. Angus Crichton (Interchange)

Will be better next series after being blooded a year or two earlier than anticipated: 5/10

  1. Tyrone Peachey (Interchange)

Only had a nine minute stint: 2/10
