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

STATE OF ORIGIN II

His looping cutout for Tom Trbojevic resulted in Blake Ferguson tiptoeing down the sideline, before finding Tedesco inside for the game-winner.

NSW was first on the board courtesy of a James Maloney penalty goal in the fifth minute.

It was a nervous final 10-minutes until Tedesco's magic and after the game he was rightly awarded the Wally Lewis Medal for the player of the series.

Cherry-Evans confirmed he was ready to cap another trademark Queensland comeback by kicking a series-deciding field goal in the dying moments of Origin III on Wednesday night.

The extraordinary last-gasp play is certain to rival the famous Mark Coyne miracle try in game one of the 1995 series, ultimately won by the Blues.

Blues Coach Brad Fitler spoke highly of the team.

"We made some good progress this year, if you look back the last couple of years with the changing of the guard I thought we made some small steps last year but some even bigger ones this year with the group that we've brought through and I want to be part of that next year with the Maroons moving forward".

NSW appeared headed for a comfortable finish when Tedesco and Damien Cook broke an 8-all deadlock with back-to-back tries in the space of nine minutes.

When Lowe's conversion sailed through, Origin was seemingly set for a golden point contest in front of a sellout 82,565 crowd at ANZ Stadium.

Pearce finally got his ideal Origin moment after throwing the long-range cut-out ball that allowed Blake Ferguson to sprint down the touch line before passing back inside to Tedesco. "It was pretty special to win the series previous year but to win it again is magic", Tedesco told the Nine Network. It began with a 65m kick return in the 34th minute to set up the Blues' first try.

It came after the Maroons' strong start that debutant Corey Norman converted into points, forcing a line dropout and then grubbering for Felise Kaufusi to score.

It was the most penalties in the first half of an Origin match in 23 years, meaning the game was very stop-start and the 8-8 scoreline reflected that.

"I have the best job in the world captaining Queensland and even losing a game in that way, I'm still proud of what I am and the team I get to lead out".

I could never see the player he is today at all.

"I thought Papalli was our best player last night, I thought he was outstanding, and with our attack Munster was risky every time we got the ball". "I'm sure everyone enjoyed the game regardless of which state you come from", he said. He just ran out of time.
