What was your favourite State of Origin moment? Vote in's Origin Knockout.

As we celebrate another Holden State of Origin series, is asking fans to vote on their favourite Origin moment.

Today, an unlikely try from an Origin rookie goes up against the defining moment from one of the game's greats.

Carl Webb beats four to score

With 10 debutants in the Maroons side, Wayne Bennett's men were the butt of plenty of jokes south of the border in the lead-up to Game One against a NSW outfit that had run up a 56-16 cricket score in the previous year's final Origin clash, but it was the Cane Toads who had the last laugh at Suncorp with a resounding 34-16 victory. Highlighting the Queenslanders aggressive, brash approach was the barnstorming four-pointer from 21-year-old reserve prop Carl Webb, who powered through would-be tacklers Jason Croker and Jamie Ainscough to score a decisive try three minutes out from halftime.

Wally Lewis's famous try

Wally Lewis's try in Origin II in 1989 not only captures just how great The King was but what the Origin spirit does for a team in a time of need. By the end of the game the Maroons had only 12 men left on the field after the likes of Vautin, Meninga, Hancock, Lindner and Langer left the field of play. Lewis, after being passed the scraps, ran diagonally over 30 metres towards the corner, brushing off attention from NSW fullback Garry Jack, to score a famous try that left him and thousands of others fist-pumping in victory.
