63. Game Three, 1982: Phil Sigsworth and Phil Duke combine to hand Queensland the critical try
Phil Duke's run into the New South Wales team would turn into his worst nightmare after a handling error in his own in-goal gifted Wally Lewis and the Queenslanders a crucial four pointer. Selected on the wing for the Blues after a solid performance in the annual City v Country game, Duke failed to catch an offload from Newtown fullback Phil Sigsworth after it appeared he was going to be trapped in-goal by Queensland back-rower Paul McCabe, allowing to the Maroons to go up 8-3. Unfortunately it would be Duke's first and last game in the sky blue jumper.
