Blues create 14-year history in epic win

STATE OF ORIGIN II

Mitchell Pearce lofted a floating cut-out ball for Tom Trbojevic before Blake Ferguson tip-toed down the sideline and passed inside Tedesco, the fullback stepping back out towards the touchline and sprinting to the corner to beat the tackle attempt of Dane Gagai.

Tedesco, who was deservedly rewarded with the Wally Lewis Medal for player of the series, was the difference between the teams in a tense Origin decider.

After the refs basically had to force the Blues to stop celebrating and convert the try, Maloney put it through the posts to leave the score at 26-20.

"But I'd love to get an opportunity to win a series with Kevvie as my coach".

Overall, Queensland probably had the better of the first 40 minutes.

NSW appeared headed for a comfortable finish when Tedesco and Damien Cook broke an 8-all deadlock with tries in the space of nine minutes in the second half.

When Lowe's conversion sailed through, Origin was seemingly set for its first golden point contest in front of a sellout 82,565 crowd at ANZ Stadium.

Tedesco was huge in crossing for two tries and running for 222 metres.

Morgan and Long attended the 2019 ESPY Awards , where they received the honor of Best Team. The team had received the key to NY earlier on Wednesday following their World Cup win .

Tedesco produced a series of huge plays in both halves of football.

Tedesco made a jinking crossfield run to set up the attacking set which led to the Blues' first try on 34 minutes and then scored on his own on 50 minutes to swing the game in his side's favour.

Scores are locked 8-8 at halftime after Queensland forward Felise Kaufusi scored first for the Maroons.

The spectacle that is State of Origin was nearly ruined on Wednesday night as a record 12 penalties were blown in the first half alone.

"He was set to do it, I could see body language", Walters said.

"I thought Papalli was our best player last night, I thought he was outstanding, and with our attack Munster was risky every time we got the ball". No penalty given, which I haven't watched too much. He just ran out of time.

"I'm a really proud Queenslander tonight".

Maroons utility Michael Morgan failed to finish the game after a copping a stray elbow to the head from McGuire in the second half.
