Match Report – Queensland 6 – 50 NSW

New South Wales posted 50 points for just the second time in State of Origin history on Wednesday, as a stunning 50-6 victory against Queensland in Townsville put the Blues 1-0 up in the 2021 series.

Tom Trbojevic scored a hat-trick in the victory, while Latrell Mitchell (two), Brian To’o (two, on debut) and Daniel Saifiti registered further tries.

Nathan Cleary was also flawless with the boot for New South Wales, as he kicked seven conversions and a penalty, with Mitchell adding a further conversion.

One has to go back to Game 3 of the Origin Series of 2000 for the last time New South Wales hit 50 points, when they notched a 56-16 win in Sydney.

All Queensland could muster was a Kurt Capewell first-half try, and Valentine Holmes’ conversion.
