State of Origin II

NSW seal Origin series in Sydney

Blues coach Brad Fittler, new to the role this year, guided New South Wales to victory in his first match in Melbourne and they wrapped up just their second series win in 13 years with a game to spare on Sunday.

Unlike in 2017, NSW were able to build on their opening victory, even with veteran Billy Slater back from injury for the Maroons.

Peachey ready for anything in Origin II

Penrith's Mr Fix-it was given just seven minutes by coach Brad Fittler at the end of the Holden State of Origin series opener at right centre when James Roberts was given a rest but has mostly been training at hooker and lock ahead of both Origins so far.

"Last game I was that pumped and happy to be there I didn't really care what role I was playing," Peachey told

"I only got seven minutes so I got a bit of a taste but I didn't get the full experience so I kind of can't wait to get a little bit more hopefully. I'll do whatever I have to do.

Myles in doubt for Origin II

Manly co-captain Myles suffered the injury early on in the Sea Eagles' NRL loss to Penrith on Sunday.

Myles completed the match, but Manly coach Trent Barrett said the injury could spell trouble and the veteran forward has been sent for scans.

"He needs a scan on his knee, I don't know how serious it is," Barrett said.

Myles suffered the injury in the opening minutes of Manly's dramatic 31-24 loss to the Panthers at Brookvale Oval.

He spent much of the first half in the attention of Manly's medical staff, who eventually declared he was fit to play on.
