The preliminaries are done, we have moved on-field with Detective Inspector Karen Murphy delivering the match ball to a fellow Queenslander, Wally Lewis. Here come the two sides, first is the champions elect, New South Wales to whistles and jeers from the partisan Queensland crowd, they won't care, they will want 3-0. Next out is the home side, Queensland, buoyed by previously mention partisan crowd, wanting to spoil the blue rinse party. They made the New South Welshmen wait though, much like they had to in the second game of the series, early gamesmanship.

Welcome one and all, to the final State of Origin game for 2014 - New South Wales against Queensland, the same old song and dance but with a radical new twist and I'm not talking dubstep beats. The Blues after eight straight years of trying, have wrest control of the state of origin shield from a dominant Queensland side. This means tonight is in name only, a dead rubber, it will mean something to the 34 men on the field and the two states - NSW looking to put an exclamation point on their first series win in almost a decade while QLD want to spoil the party, make the shield lifting from Gallen and his troops afterwards feel slightly hollow, so game on!

There are a few issues coming into the game tonight - Cooper Cronk, who was sidelined with a shoulder injury, makes a return tonight and will be targeted by the NSW team. It isn't a picture of health for the Blues though, Josh Morris who was originally sidelined for the entire origin series, will take his spot against Greg Inglis in the centres. These have dominated the headlines leading up to the game besides some grandstanding from each state's more sensationalised newspapers and Mal taking the Darius Boyd vow of silence in the pre-game interviews, leading up to tonight. It is down to the two teams now, to do all the talking, join us at 8:15pm (approx.) for kick-off in the final origin game.
