NRL.com rates the performances of all 17 New South Wales players following their 26-18 win over Queensland last night in Game II of the 2015 State of Origin series.
1. Josh Dugan
Scored the match-sealing try and offered solid service all night but didn't do anything groundbreaking. 7/10.
2. Brett Morris
Helped his forwards out all night and did his Origin legacy no harm. 6/10.
3. Michael Jennings
After a very ordinary Origin I, Jennings was an absolute star and strike weapon for NSW this time around as proven by his try and seven tackle breaks. 9/10.
4. Josh Morris
Scored the Blues' second try but wasn't as effective marking up against Greg Inglis this time around. Scrambled well in defence at times but was otherwise kept very quiet all game. 5.5/10.
5. Will Hopoate
Improved exponentially from his Origin I showing. Wasn't as rushed, proved vital in attack and even pulled off a great try-saving tackle on Inglis late in the first half. 6.5/10.
6. Mitch Pearce
Pearce's performance was solid, but he also had a little luck at times, something he hasn't had a lot of in the Origin arena. Set up Josh Morris's try with his first kick of the game but had a couple of 50/50 calls go his way. 6/10.
7. Trent Hodkinson
The cool head that coach Laurie Daley has been chasing from Hodkinson all series shined. His lack of kicking simplified his game and promisingly took the line on a bit more. Also set up the match-winner for Dugan. 7.5/10.
