State of Origin never seems to disappoint.
Having dropped their opening game in Sydney, the NSW VB Blues squared up the series in Melbourne after a monumental effort against Queensland.
Game one, despite the loss, saw NSW centre Josh Morris score one of the great Origin tries. A late field goal to Cooper Cronk meant that Queensland would take a 1-0 advantage heading into game two in Melbourne.
Origin lit up the MCG as rugby league fans flocked the iconic venue to see NSW claim a brutal encounter, levelling the series at one-a-piece with an eight-point victory.
