COUNTRY v CITY | Highlights

City Origin has done enough to down Country 20-10 in Mudgee in the final ever City-Country fixture with a handful of Origin hopefuls putting their hands up for higher honours.

There was a timely reminder to Blues coach Laurie Daley from Penrith prop James Tamou of what he can offer with a mammoth effort including 209 metres and a strong try from short range.

His clubmate Tyrone Peachey also racked up 173 metres and was a constant threat with ball in hand at left centre. Another Penrith Origin hopeful, Bryce Cartwright, had a mixed afternoon – there were some poor passes and a couple of errors but he was hard to bring down when he opted to run it and finished with a late match-sealing try.
