Origin Moments: First NSW win v King's hat-trick
The Holden State of Origin series is with us again for another year, and we at NRL.com are celebrating by asking fans to vote on their favourite Origin moment.
The first NSW win
After Queensland won the first five State of Origin shields, NSW finally won their first series by taking out Game Two in 1985 at the SCG. The Blues raced to a 12-0 lead before the Maroons hit back to take the ascendancy 14-12. Michael O'Conner kicked a penalty goal and a field goal to put NSW ahead 15-14 before Brett Kenny scored late to seal the win.
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.
