NSW win Origin

While Queensland denied NSW a clean sweep, winning Origin III 18-12 at Suncorp Stadium, the Blues still lifted the Origin shield with a 2-1 series win (winning game one 22-12 and game two 18-14).

Trailing 12-8 at halftime, Valentine Holmes and Daly Cherry-Evans gave Queensland victory. Holmes scored two tries and kicked two goals. Tom Trbojevic and James Tedesco scored NSW’s tries, with two Nathan Cleary goals.

Billy Slater controversially won the Wally Lewis Medal as player of the series.
