- Kalyn Ponga (Fullback) 5/10
A number of errors in both attack and defence, left his ‘A’ game in Brisbane unfortunately.
- Corey Oates (Wing) 5/10
Wasn’t his worst game but was missing his usual oomph in his running game. One of just three Maroons to cross the 100 running metres milestone.
- Michael Morgan (Centre) 5.5/10
Earnt the most running metres (118) amongst all Queensland players and tied for most tackle breaks (four).
- Will Chambers (Centre) 5/10
The lone try scorer for the Maroons was again full of rocks and diamond moments.
- Dane Gagai (Wing) 5/10
Was he wearing his Souths jumper underneath the Maroon tonight? Didn’t reach his previous standards of representative performances.
- Cameron Munster (Five-Eighth) 5.5/10
Tried to help his forwards out with 14 runs but despite his best efforts, didn’t create many opportunities.
- Daly Cherry-Evans (Halfback) 6/10
Had a great first 35 minutes but went missing in the remaining 45.
- Dylan Napa (Prop) 3/10
Just three runs for a starting Origin forward. Not good enough and not up to standard.
- Ben Hunt (Hooker) 7/10
A shining light. Set up a try for Chambers in the first half and earnt the achievement of having kicked more 40/20’s than any other player in Origin history.
- Josh Papalii (Prop) 5/10
A handful of errors in both attack and defence. The Blues pack contained him well.
- Felise Kaufusi (Second Row) 6.5/10
The only Maroons forward to run over 100 run metres.
- Matt Gillett (Second Row) 6.5/10
Tried his guts out with 50 tackles. Could have done more with ball in hand however.
- Josh McGuire (Lock) 7/10
One of the only Maroons forwards to have a dig. Finished the contest with 95 metres and 40 tackles.
- Moses Mbye (Interchange) 3/10
Only played 14 minutes in total.
- Jarrod Wallace (Interchange) 3.5/10
Showed why he wasn’t selected in Game I. Highlights the fact that Queensland’s depth is incredibly dim.
- Tim Glasby (Interchange) 5/10
25 tackles and nine hitups for 63 metres. Wasn’t the best performance but showed enough in a 29-minute stint to warrant selection in the decider.
- David Fifita (Interchange) 5/10
Offered more than several of the starters.
