“What game!” – Maroons seals exciting excitement when the Blues in the epic refused a chance at the last breath

The Maroons defeated the Blues 16-10 on three attempts two in the opening Origin series, which had everything, including a controversial ending at Accor Stadium.

The Maroons led 16-4 after eight minutes of play before Cameron Murray’s attempt gave the Blues a chance to claim a gold point.

However, Isaah Yeo was in the last game of the match, with the Blues denied the last game with the ball and a chance to force an overtime in the chaotic ending.

The Blues were soon shaken by the star lock that Isaah Yeo knocked down while trying to make the first match of the match, but an independent doctor allowed him to continue.

“The drama in Origin’s first broadcast,” Matt Thompson said on Channel 9.

“If an independent doctor doesn’t see Isaah Ye, I don’t know what they’re doing,” Ryan Girdler told Triple M.

Jack Wighton scored the first attempt of the evening and soon got the Blues 4-0.

Wighton grabbed a pass from Jarome Luai to show and went and scored the first attempt of the evening to prove that Brad Fittler bravely called the right center.

The movement was started by a great pass by Damien Cook, who impressed blues legend Andrew Johns.

“Just watch a pass from Damien Cook,” Johns said.

“It’s like a bullet.” And he gets through three Queensland defenders and creates space on the outside.

“He’ll get Nathan Cleary right on the edge of the field and show-and-go.” At this level you get your players to bet one on one, that’s a good night. Look at this pass. ”

Billy Slater made an early change and brought Patrick Carrigan to Josh Papalia, who immediately created a massive hit.

“Well, he must have been impressed by that broadcast, but also by the previous set,” Slater said on Channel 9.

“We know what Paddy is capable of, and we wanted Dad to put this platform on us, and he must have known.”

Slater also replaced Ben Hunt hooker Harry Grant in the middle of the first half in a tactical championship move that turned development.

The Maroons were shaken by winger Xavier Coates, an ankle injury required his descent, and he was later expelled from the game.

“Xavier Coates is gone,” Johns said.

“He can’t play anymore.” Then he just got hit and can barely escape. ”

Coates was officially expelled from the game moments later.

“I just got a confirmation from their bench that Xavier Coates will not be back tonight,” Danika Mason said.

“Unfortunately, it’s all feared by what we thought it would be, ankle sprain, syndesmosis, and his night is over.”

Selwyn Cobbo delivered a brilliant kick back from the inside to place the ball on a tray for Dane Gagaie, who scored his 12th attempt at 20 Origins and got the Maroons into the lead at 6-4.

“Well, he’s left-handed and left-footed, he’s putting it on his right shoe,” Johns said.

“He’s playing on the right.” A dozen games he played in first class.

“Kalyn Ponga, loves playing these short sides, the ball goes to the ground. He runs with the ball in his left hand and then his non-dominant foot to get his non-dominant foot to get the ball into space and create an attempt.

“Talk about superstars, about this young man.” The world is at his feet. “

Matthew Elliott marveled at Cobb’s brilliance.

“Cobbo … no words, no words, for a child of that age, to come up with that pickup, with that kick, in this arena,” Elliott told ABC Sport.

The Blues seemed to be taking the lead again as they tried to put Blues star Paul Paul on the bench, but the bunker faced an obstacle against Cameron Murray in the crowd.

“Patrick Carrigan, Cameron Murray will pass, watch Carrigan,” Johns said.

“Yes, that’s right, The Blues fans aren’t excited about this call, but we see it every week at the NRL.”

The Maroons went to a 6-4 half after Selwyn Cobbo miraculously assisted Dane Gagai to score his 12th attempt at Origin.

The Maroons began horror in the second half, when Jeremiah Nanai suffered an ankle injury.

“If you’re in North Queensland, you’ll hold their breath,” Johns said.

“This young man … is playing for the North Queensland Cowboys and has started a competition and is trying to score.”

However, Nanai returned in a heroic performance late in the second half.

Cameron Munster gave Maroons a field position only for Daly Cherry-Evans, who scored from the scrum.

However, records showed that the support of the Blues Junior Paulo seemed to be delayed in the scrum.

“If you look at a high shot, yes for a moment.” Is that enough? ”Darren Lockyer said.

“I do not know.” There’s an argument for the Blues, but it’s on board and we’ll get from Valentin Holmes and they’ll let it go. “

Kalyn Ponga prepared Valentine Holmes for his third attempt in Queensland and made Daniel Tupou look stupid.

“They dominate the Blues,” Thompson said.

“On the back of a dangerous throw from Stephen Crichton and Kalyn Pong is the man who is the most dangerous at this end of the field,” said Cameron Smith.

“Watch his speed.” He gets the ball and puts Nathan Cleary, who defends Valentin Holmes with two hands and a beautiful ball.

“Harry Grant has looked at the defender and Stephen Crichton is caught in the field and Nathan Cleary is addicted to their centers and Tupou and they are stuck defending two players Maroons and Valentine Holmes, it was a discrepancy.”

The Blues finished the stands when Cameron Murray scored with eight minutes of play.

“And I’m attacking on the left.” A nice 1-2 punch and Nathan Cleary gets forward, changes angle, and then Jarome Luai, in Harvey Norman Replay, gets Cherry-Evans, turns around, Gagai goes out, and that’s the channel they need to attack. , the gap between Cherry-Evans and Dane Gagai, “said Johns.
“This will show beautifully, and Gagai was worried about the outside and Cherry-Evans.”

comes in. ”

The Blues made the final blow to force an overtime, but the Maroons kept him in the fight, prompting penalties.

However, Ashley Klein ruled the utensils at Yeo and whistled for the final whistle when Queensland sealed Origin upset for ages.

“I felt very convinced that this was the best way.”
