  1. James Tedesco (Fullback)

Didn’t reach the heroics of Game I but was still outstanding for the Blues: 7.5/10

  1. Tom Trbojevic (Wing)

Wasn’t flashy but did his job: 5.5/10

  1. Latrell Mitchell (Centre)

The Mitchell v. Inglis matchup once again reminiscent of a master versus apprentice scenario – this time the apprentice came out on top: 8/10

  1. James Roberts (Centre)

A sound performance despite being binned in the final 10: 5/10

  1. Josh Addo-Carr (Wing)

One of New South Wales’ best: 8.5/10

  1. James Maloney (Five-Eighth)

Backed up his man of the match performance from Game I: 8/10

  1. Nathan Cleary (Halfback)

Did his job and made up a lot of territory, again: 6/10

  1. David Klemmer (Prop)

Solid. Had just nine carries of the football but managed good yardage with 85 metres: 6.5/10

  1. Damien Cook (Hooker)

Tackled his guts out (42) and again threatening from dummy-half: 7/10

  1. Matt Prior (Prop)

Was a strange selection and proved so with a quiet performance. Just three hitups: 3/10

  1. Boyd Cordner (Second Row)

The skipped led from the front. Unfortunately injured in the second half: 8/10

  1. Tyson Frizell (Second Row)

Not his best performance but still showed signs: 5.5/10

  1. Jack De Belin (Lock)

Shared the role with Jake Trbojevic yet again, didn’t do too much with ball in hand: 5/10

  1. Paul Vaughn (Interchange)

  1. I know this is all just someone’s opinion but I just have to say prior wasn’t that bad, attacking was quiet but qld felt the hits he was throwing out

  2. Ado car one of our best he leaked points all night

    Ben hunt 2 bahahaha
    Get used to a dragons fans this is what he does in pressure situations he buckles paid overs for a dud

  3. Turbo Thomas only 0.5 more than Roberts who got sent off haha that’ll do me the kid was great with only 12 men and if Roberts could defend the 1st try wouldn’t of been.
    Jack debelin deserves a 7 his tackles were ruthless he hurt them every time and raiders vaughn was great off the bench lots of hard runs but jakey boy what a player so solid doesn’t miss tackles can ball play and hits like a tank. Great team qld never stood a chance with ponga playing in the middle lol

    • Turbo was found out in defence a few times in the first half. Might have been found out in the second half too but Qld seemed to prefer being dragged out into touch by a beastly Latrell.

    • Tom stuffed up early but came back with some try savers and cruching tackles 7 at the very least. Cleary also 7.5 for me. He was excellent.

      • I don’t think Cleary was excellent, he was very quite and went missing in action most of the game. Maloney did more first receiving than our halfback. Cleary is young but he really needs to take control of the team a bit more. Sure Maloney is the experienced campaigner but Cleary needs to wrestle a bit of the organization away from him. Cleary to me is playing like a 5/8.

  4. I thought De Belin had a great game and I think there was a point where he and Jake were on the field together so I wouldn’t say they shared the role exactly. Jake is playing as a prop I’m pretty sure, which IMO suits him well for origin as he runs the ball hard and the shorter stints allows him to throw himself around a lot more.

    Prior was ok in defense but James would have given them more IMO.

    Maloney is as cool as they come, NSW’s probably going to have both halves as the reps for Australia.

  5. Mitchell v Ingles did not happen. Anybody who watched the first two state of Origins knows Latrell Mitchell plays opposite Will Chambers and in both Origins the current Australian centre Will Chambers has been outplayed and out muscled by Latrell Mitchell.👍🤣 Inglis on the other hand was quite this game and really only gave a simple pass to his winger to score a try in the first ten minutes. Other than that he did very little.

    • Yeah I blame Hunt for that. Someone had to be calling for the ball on the other side of the field and if it wasn’t a coaching decision to continue to push right then it had to be Hunt since that’s where he spent all his time.
