Which State of Origin moment will be named the fans' favourite?

To celebrate the Holden State of Origin series we at are celebrating by asking fans to vote on their favourite Origin moment. 

Today, one of the great finishes in Origin history goes up against the start of Queensland's era of domination.

Coyne's miracle try

Who better than Ray Warren, the voice of rugby league, to sum up Origin's most replayed moment? "That's not a try, that's a miracle!" bellowed Rabs as Mark Coyne slid through two defenders to score one of the greatest tries in the game's history. In Game One 1994, down 12-4 with five minutes remaining, Queensland first drew within striking distance through a try from winger Willie Carne, before pulling out one last desperate play that went through eight pairs of hands, worked its way from one sideline to the other and back again before culminating in Coyne's iconic touchdown with seconds left on the clock to give the Maroons an astounding 16-12 win.

Lockyer starts the streak

It was the moment that New South Wales fans dread to watch and have tried to block from their memory ever since. A fateful pass from Brett Hodgson in the 2006 series decider that travelled to no-one has been etched in the history books as the moment that started the eight-year run of series wins for the Maroons. Aptly enough, Darren Lockyer would be the man to break the Maroons own three-year losing streak as he chased onto the ball, picking it up and breaking free of Blues prop Luke Bailey to win the game and begin the Maroons' dynasty.
