51. Game Three, 2005: Matt King's hat-trick

While Matt King will always be remembered for one of the better afros to grace a rugby league field, a streamlined King claimed the Brad Fittler Medal for best Blues player in a series in 2005 in just his second full year of first grade with a rapid-fire hat trick in NSW's resounding 32-10 win at Suncorp Stadium. King took just half an hour to rack up his treble with tries in the 31st, 47th and 64th minutes as the Blues claimed  their third series win on the trot in front of 52,496 very quiet Queenslanders
