A bit of Josh Addo-Carr brilliance was enough to seal a win for the NSW Blues in Game 1 of the 2018 State of Origin series.

For a moment it seemed like the Blues might be about to blow a great opportunity to score, but a decisive effort by Addo-Carr got NSW their fourth try of the night.

It means that the Blues moved out from a six-point advantage to ten, and with limited time left in the match they were able to hold out for the win.

They lead the series 1-0 after defeating Queensland 22-12 at the MCG.
