Is this the Blue Formula?
Half-time saw complete dominance with the ball and field position, but QLD were winning by just 6-0. This NSW is tough, and can win this series easily. Qld two first two tries came from the kick, yet it was NSW that when in position, scored easily with their attack. Qld will be hoping that Greg Inglis and Justin Hodges are fit for Game 2, to add attacking nous. In saying that, Dane Nielson and Willie Tonga were good right throughout the game, even with Tonga nursing a shoulder.
In the end, it was the Slater, Thurston, Lockyer, Cronk, and Smith combination that brought the Queenslanders home.
