PLAYER REVIEWS: See who starred and who flopped as NSW crushed Queensland to the series in exciting style

  • NSW ran out 34-point winners after wrecking the Maroons in Perth
  • Nathan Cleary and James Tedesco were stars for an unbridled Blues outfit
  • Patrick Carrigan and Cameron Munster led the way for the Maroons

After a tight first half punctuated by a controversial sin box, the NSW Blues turned on the afterburners to blitz Queensland in the second 40 minutes, led by dynamite plays from half Nathan Cleary and James Tedesco.

It was a gloomy night for the Maroons at Perth’s Optus Stadium as they collapsed under the relentless NSW attack and showed an unusually soft defense in the later stages.

This is how the players did it…

Nathan Cleary is somewhere under this avalanche of celebrating Blues players after scoring one of his two tries during the NSW triumph
