NSW have snagged the 2018 State of Origin series after a thrilling win in game II of the series on Sunday night.
The Blue led the match at halftime 12-10, and went on the seal the victory by four points at full-time, 18-14.
After a decade of disappointment, NSW coach Brad Fittler is a State of Origin series winning coach at his first attempt. An undefeated one, too.
The Baby Blues - boasting 11 debutants - came of age against a Maroons side without retired greats, ex-skipper Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston and Cooper Cronk, in front of 87,122 fans.
