Queensland wins State of Origin

July 11, 2015

Queensland are State of Origin rugby league champions again after crushing New South Wales 52-6 in the decider in Brisbane.

The Maroons dominated the first half, scoring three tries to none. They had 65 per cent of possession and led 22-2 at the break.

The second half was much of the same as the Maroons quickly kept out to a 28-2 lead.

Queensland were aggressive in defence, but New South Wales were their own worst enemies also, giving away cheap penalties and dropping the ball far too often before the 52,000 crowd.

It is the most points Queensland have scored in an Origin match and it is their biggest winning margin.

Queensland won game one in Sydney 11-10, with NSW winning 26-18 in game two at the MCG.
