56. Game Two, 2013: Sam Thaiday scores early

Stung by the Blues win in Game One at ANZ Stadium, particularly by the one-two combination Paul Gallen landed on the chin of Maroons back-rower Nate Myles, San Thaiday's try in just in the second minute of play got the Queenslanders off to the best possible start as they aimed to square the series. Running off a Cooper Cronk short ball, Thaiday's surge through a gap the size of a small house set the tone for the Cane Toads as they powered to a comfortable 26-6 win.
