Very close. I'd give it to Fifita because I think he broke Queensland's back. Tedesco has been great in every department though.

He's a brilliant player... Signed big coin for souths

He's going to Souths??
Reportedly
Bugger!
He is good but bit small in statue .... think he might be OK in side with strong forward pack.

Can't remember the last time NSW had a win this dominant.

Tedesco's been great, but Fafita set the stage for a NSW victory

but Teddy broke their heart

Biggest ever win in QLD.... conceding only one try from a kick.... Good effort from the use for a change
Very odd seeing QLD beaten so comprehensively.. Those players missing certainly made a difference

Fafita was extremely dominant and was the difference early.

3. Fafita
2. Peats
1. Tedesco

The refs stayed out of the game tonight which made a spectacle for the first half and beyond.
Other years they've blown the pea out of the whistle and become a borathon...tonight was a true origin.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

Yep he was involved in everything. Either him or Fifita.

Great selection that Justin O'Neill, had a whale of a game...

Surely game 2 we see: 1. Slater 2. Oates 3. Gagai 4. Chambers 5. Boyd

Gagai would be tearing Hayne to shreds in attack.
I would have thought
1. Slater
2. Valentine-Holmes
3. Gagai
4. Chambers
5. Boyd

17. Oates

Would be more dangerous. But Oates played well.

It's interesting seeing who the quality players are. Tedesco, Fifita, Maloney, Hayne (what a knob though), Klemmer and even Graham for NSW. Queensland had Gagai, Papali and Milford.

Heaps of good players for both sides but there were some shockers out there. Woods, Pearce, Myles and O'Neill are all a level or two below origin.

I think Oates is a bit of a plodder. Decent player but not great. That backline would be heaps better than what was out there tonight.

Maloney would have to be in the running also.

I thought:

1. Klemmer or Peats

Klemmer provided great momentum and Peats was massive in defence, particularly in the first half. He made huge first contact and stopped the Queenslanders in their tracks.

Maloney was good too.
