Half time in Origin decider: too
hard to call

New South Wales are leading Queensland 12-8 at half time in tonights State of Origin decider at Stadium Australia.

Queensland look to have the better of play but the scoreline favours New South Wales. A tremendous match living up to 'Origin decider' status. Queensland's PJ Marsh was forced from the field with concussion following a heavy tackle from Trent Barrett (pictured) but appears likely to come back.

Qld fullback Darren Lockyer has been causing plenty of headaches for NSW just wide of the ruck while Jason Ryles has been a power house up front for NSW.
