Who rated through the roof and who went missing in State Of Origin Game III?

 

There were several standouts for the Queenslanders who clinched the series once more but the New South Wales hierarchy will be ruing this series as the one that got away.

 

QUEENSLAND

 

BILLY SLATER – 8 out 10

 

Was brilliant again and offered plenty in attack as usual.

 

VALENTINE HOLMES – 8 out of 10

 

Scored a hat-trick and showed some outstanding skills to boot! The only flaw was when Josh Dugan picked his pocket to grab the try for NSW.

 

WILL CHAMBERS – 7 out of 10

 

Did his job without being a standout.

 

DANE GAGAI – 7.5 out of 10

 

Didn’t get the tries tonight but jees what a player he is! Constantly helped get the Maroons out of their end and was difficult to tackle throughout the match.

 

CAMERON MUNSTER – 7.5 out of 10

 

Was excellent in his State Of Origin debut and benefited from having some familiar faces around him. Didn’t hesitate to take the gaps when he saw them and helped set up a few tries.

 

COOPER CRONK – 8 out of 10

 

What was that kick to get the second try???? His only fault was when diving for the line too early and dropping the ball early on when it was 6-0.

 

DYLAN NAPA – 6.5 out of 10

 

Did his job but was handled like a cheap suit on occasions in that second half.

 

CAMERON SMITH – 7.5 out of 10

 

His game management skills are something which should be bottled. Imagine you could sell it to any rugby league team? Oh, and his referring skills were spot on too!

 

JARROD WALLACE – 6.5 out of 10

 

Solid and did what he had to do.

 

GAVIN COOPER – 6.5 out of 10

 

Not one of the standouts but helped greatly in giving the Queenslanders their go-forward

 

MATT GILLETT – 6.5 out of 10

 

As expected, solid without being brilliant.

 

JOSH MCGUIRE – 7 out of 10

 

Looks like having a mortgage on that lock position for the Maroons

 

INTERCHANGE

 

Ben Hunt 5, Josh Papalii 6, Coen Hess 6.5, Tim Glasby 7

 

NEW SOUTH WALES

 

JAMES TEDESCO – 8 out of 10

 

Defensively was outstanding. Absorbed all the pressure thrown at him but was almost a non-factor in attack

 

BRETT MORRIS – 7 out of 10

 

His experience helped out quite a bit in the back but he doesn’t have the zip like in his younger years

 

JOSH DUGAN – 6.5 out of 10

 

Scored the lone New South Wales try but committed too many errors

 

JARRYD HAYNE – 5 out of 10

 

For someone that boasts plenty of x-factor on his day, we saw none of it here

 

JAMES MALONEY – 7 out of 10

 

Tried his heart out but ran out of options and tricks late in the game when the Blues needed something

 

MITCHELL PEARCE – 6 out of 10

 

Why? His kicking game again found a Maroons player every single time. Tried his guts out and saved a few tries so we have to give him some credit for that.

 

AARON WOODS – 5.5 out of 10

 

Ordinary.

 

NATHAN PEATS – 7 out of 10

 

Destined to be the Blues hooker for quite some time. Would have liked to see him run a bit more in Game III

 

ANDREW FIFITA – 5.5 out of 10

 

Well contained again. His heroics in Game I seem like a lifetime ago

 

BOYD CORDNER – 6.5 out of 10

 

Brave and bold right to the end which is what the captain should be. You could tell he was hampered by his calf though

 

JOSH JACKSON – 5 out of 10

 

A shadow of the player that took out Man of the Match honours in Game II

 

TYSON FRIZELL – 7 out of 10

 

Ran hard and fast as always. His runs helped the Blues get back momentum in the second half. Why Laurie Daley only gave him 47 minutes is a big question

 

INTERCHANGE

 

Dave Klemmer 7, Wade Graham 6.5, Jake Trbojevic 6, Jack Bird 6.5
