'Ruining the game': Anger over 'bewildering' drama in State of Origin decider

STATE OF ORIGIN II

After the refs basically had to force the Blues to stop celebrating and convert the try, Maloney put it through the posts to leave the score at 26-20. I'm really proud of these guys and I'll be back next year.

"But I'd love to get an opportunity to win a series with Kevvie as my coach".

It came after Queensland forward Josh Papalii crossed in the 77th minute and debutant Ethan Lowe nailed a pressure conversion to level the game.

An 80th minute NSW team try broke Queensland hearts.

But the horrors of series past appeared to return after Queensland scored twice in the final eight minutes through Josh McGuire and Papalii. Nobody ran for more than his 222 metres.

Tedesco produced a series of huge plays in both halves of football.

Queensland entered the first half looking a lot stronger than they did in Game 2, with Kaufusi taking the first try of the match at the 15-minute mark, followed by Vaughan inching the ball over the line for the Blues just before half-time.

Tedesco made a jinking crossfield run to set up the attacking set which led to the Blues' first try on 34 minutes and then scored on his own on 50 minutes to swing the game in his side's favour.

Being involved in one of the most dramatic finishes seen in the Origin arena recently was cold consolation to the Maroons on the full-time whistle. "The result is going to hurt for a long time - I'll remember this for a long time", Queensland skipper Daly Cherry-Evans said.

When pushed on whether he'd turn down an NRL job, Walters replied: "I don't want to talk about that now".

"I thought Papalli was our best player last night, I thought he was outstanding, and with our attack Munster was unsafe every time we got the ball".

"The referees are interfering in this game too much tonight", he later added.

"And when you do go for a field goal at that stage and you miss, you give seven tackles and you open yourself up for the opposition to get down your end".

"That was always going to be the case so I hope they stick with him".

It was just the beginning of the headaches for the Maroons.
