Tom Trbojevic and Josh Addo-Carr crossed to make sure for the Blues. It is the first time NSW has not taken a bus to the MCG, but coach Brad Fittler’s left-field idea proved to be a masterstroke as the Blues avoided Melbourne’s notorious peak-hour traffic.

Tedesco got a nice pass away as he was falling to the deck.

Queensland forced Nathan Cleary in-goal to earn a repeat set on the back of a ten-minute period of physical dominance.

Smith told Channel 9 after the game the decision was a “turning point”. “Tedesco once again through tired forwards up through the middle and carved them up,” he said. “If the Maroons win this one it would be the biggest upset in State of Origin history,” Lewis told Macquarie Sports Radio.

Replays showed the ball sailed almost 4m forward, but there was no mention of the infringement on the Channel 9 telecast until Gallen laughed about the pass going unnoticed after the game. Queensland legend Darren Lockyer said the Maroons would be glad the Blues didn’t try and press on for a try. Hunt, in particular, came under intense scrutiny for his poor performance in Game II, during which he made the decision to kick on the third tackle after Blues centre James Roberts had been sin-binned for a professional foul late in the second half. #Origin #NRL pic.twitter.com/RJjyo1u1Qi.

The signs were ominous for Queensland after a chaotic lead-up, losing veteran fullback Billy Slater (hamstring) and sweating until the last minute for the availability of winger Dane Gagai (finger).
