The NSW Blues have won Game 2 and claimed the 2018 State of Origin series with a four-point win over the Queensland Maroons on Sunday night at ANZ Stadium.

It was an instant classic of a match – with the series on the line, the Queensland Maroons came to play, and scored the first two tries of the match.

However NSW fought back to score through Josh Addo-Carr and then took the lead after Boyd Cordner was awarded just the second penalty try in Origin history.

It was a tightly-fought second half with the sides scoring a try each, but in the end the Blues were able to hold on to win the match and the series.
