Judge: Warrick Nicolson
4 - Paul Gallen, NSW
While everyone needs to remember there have been 80 minute front rowers before - Gallen was immense for the Blues up front. Played all 80 minutes and just kept going - evidenced by his two hitups in the Blues 79th minute set after sealing the game with Minichiello's try. Final stat line was 31 tackles, 27 runs for 204 metres with 3 offloads. The best on the field by a distance.
2 - Akuila Uate, NSW
He was NSW's second best forward behind Gallen... yes he is a winger. Did a huge amount of work in the first half when the Blues needed some drive to open their sets and his first and last run had the same amount of effort. Had some moments in genuine attack as well - well worth the punt the NSW selectors took on him this year.
1 - Luke Lewis, NSW
Made an immediate impact when injected for Trent Merrin (who never saw the field again) by leaping above the pack to take a Mitchell Pearce kick and get the Blues on the board before halftime. Threw himself into the contest and his covering tackle on Cooper Cronk was a sight to behold. Just edges out Anthony Minichiello for a point.
Judge: Matthew Duncan
4 - Paul Gallen, NSW
Just kept coming and coming and coming all night at the Maroons. Won the battle of the forwards for the Blues which laid the platform for the victory. His captaincy get an A+ also, in the referees ear all night and definitely influenced some decisions.
2 - Anthony Minichiello, NSW
Was not only safe at the back but looked dangerous with every kick return. Topped off the performance with the match sealing try.
1 - Luke Lewis, NSW
A super footballer - Brings so much to every team he plays in. Scored a great try and pulled off a great tackle on Cronk.
