93. Game Two, 2008: Greg Inglis sets up a brilliant try for Darius Boyd at Suncorp Stadium
There's one reason as to why Darius Boyd is working his way up ranks of Queensland Origin's try scoring list and that's Greg Inglis. None of Boyd's tries would be as memorable as his first try in Game 2, 2008 and it had nothing to do with him. After being outplayed by NSW counterpart Mark Gasnier in Origin I, Inglis was a man on a mission and it played right in Boyd's hands. 70 metres out from his line, Inglis palmed away Gasnier and club teammate at the time Steve Turner to escape downfield and with NSW defence looming Inglis threw the ball to a supporting Boyd to get the Maroons on the board as they eventually ran away with it 30-zip.
