2017 State of Origin game II

NSW v Queensland: Five key points

Origin II: Queensland player ratings

Here are the Queensland player ratings. 

1. Billy Slater

Did not miss a beat after a two-year Origin hiatus, causing headaches for the Blues from the get-go. One of Queensland's best. 8.5/10.  

2. Valentine Holmes 

Mixed night. Had a nervy start making a mistake with his first carry in the opening minutes, but he made up for it in the 9th minute with a spectacular try. Another mistake before half-time undid his good work. 5.5/10  

3. Will Chambers

Origin II sold out

The final tickets for the match, which will see NSW chase a first series win since 2014 at ANZ Stadium tonight, were sold this afternoon.

"State of Origin is a wonderful sporting contest and it has been fantastic to see our supporters get behind it again this year," NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said.

"The players are the best of the best and the entertainment they produce deserves a full stadium. It will be great to see them get it tonight."
