State Of Origin Greatest Ever Games: New South Wales
Not yet reviewed.
Over a history spanning four decades, State of Origin football has presented us with some of the greatest memories in Australian sporting history. Here, we step back in time to present five of the greatest Origin games every played by the New South Wales Blues, presented in their entire original broadcast format. From Steve Mortimer’s heroics of 1985 and Mark Geyer’s rough-housing of 1991, to Ben Elias’ mastery of the ruck in 1994 and Andrew Johns’ peerless display in 2003, this classic collection is a must-have for any Blues fan.
1985, Game 2 New South Wales 21 – 14 Queensland

1991, Game 2 New South Wales 14 – 12 Queensland
