NSW Win Origin Thriller
Wednesday, May 24, 2006 - 10:20 PM
NSW halfback Brett Finch has kicked a last-minute field goal to lead the Blues to a thrilling 17-16 victory against Queensland in the opening game of the State of Origin league series at Telstra Stadium
Finch, who was only drafted into the Blues squad late on Tuesday night to replace injured halfback Craig Gower, also scored one try and had a hand in two others to get the Blues home.
The victory keeps NSW's unbeaten record at Telstra Stadium intact.
it was great. a last minute kick to win it, a few fights in the big game, a all out brawl in the U-19 game, a few fights in the stands, and YES, i was wearing my queensland shirt!!!
that is about all i have to say about the game. Great game and great atmosphere made for a hell of a night.
