If NSW had a halfback out there the score would be scarey for QLD.
Maroons defending bravely but tries against them just look inevitable.
Fifita having a blinder.

Fifita is a gun player. Tedesco is quality but I just want to see him get smashed. Gagai & Milford are awesome players.

Pearce is so ordinary.

I've got to say Brett Morris has been really good. He was the player I was most concerned about as well.

My man Gillett has missed a couple of crucial tackles tonight. He looked exhausted at the end.

Fifita was a Tiger (cries). Peats has been great.

Woods and Tedesco have both played well as usual, Fifita and Maloney have been awesome, Peats has surprised me and I'm sorry Mitchell, but despite your try on halftime, you still look like a deer in the headlights when it comes to Origin!

Milford not fazed by the occasion at all, Gagai has been great, as have most of the Qld outside backs, but you can tell they are missing Thurston and the forwards are being outplayed at the moment.

shocking late attack on Fafita
It ended up working in NSWs favour. He went off with HIA and got back on with 5 minutes to go and was in the lead up to the 2nd try.

No one in NSW has produced that beaut grubber kick near the line yet

Sorry, guys, but credit where credit is due. I've been Pearce's greatest critic, and this is the first time he's ever looked comfortable at Origin. Good service and not overwhelmed for a change.

Cracker of a first half, plenty of missed tackles from both sides shows just how gassed they are from the pace. Teddy has been fantastic, Fifita is best on field ATM. I thought Woods was good in his first spell, got a couple of good offloads away and made solid metres. If Pearce could kick effectively we could put Qld away.

NSW left edge is the weakness. Laurie said try them out and the boys did. Carving them up. Keep going that way.
