New South Wales beat Queensland 18 points to 6 to take the series to a final game and to thrill the 81,965 people in ANZ Stadium.

It started as a real arm wrestle with Mal Meninga's team taking an early penalty lead, Ricky Stuarts Team slowly getting into the game going 8-6 at the break with tries from Minichello and a maroon try via the video ref for from Cameron Smith.

After the half time oranges, Man of the match Gallen put in a top class performance, and just as you where thinking to question marks over the Blues selection process, 19-year-old Will Hopoate ran info a majectic inches from the corner flag try taking the game out for the New South Wales team.

Fullback Anthony Minichiello scored the clincher in the 77th minute, the hope now for the Blues is to stop the rot and take the series stopping a 6 in a row for the Maroons.

NSW 18 (W Hopoate L Lewis A Minichiello tries, J Soward 3 goals)
QUEENSLAND 8 (C Smith try, J Thurston 2 goals) at ANZ Stadium.

Referees: Shayne Hayne, Ben Cummins.
