    A blowout to finish the series. Qld, with all of their players in tact tonight and a big home crowd, win the dead rubber convincingly. It's five tries to one as the Maroons belt NSW 32-8. They dominated tonight and were held up four times in the first half by some more spirited NSW defence. But when the blue wall cracked, it crumbled. Qld found some fluency in attack at long last and players like Hodges were having a field day by the end of proceedings. Corey Parker was big on his return to the Qld side and Cooper Cronk just added the kind of quality that had been missing since the first 10 minutes of the opener. Josh Dugan was brilliant for the Blues and Hayne had more wonderful moments to cap off an outstanding series. There may have been little on the line tonight but this just sets it up once again for next season. Thanks for joining the coverage for all of our games. Stay tuned to brisbanetimes, the SMH and all of the Fairfax mastheads for the very best writing on Origin III.

    It's 32-8. Nearly there folks.

    It's turning into a bloodbath. NSW getting flattened now and that's a deserved TRY to Cooper Cronk. He's been superb tonight for Qld and has given them the kind of composure and shape they've been missing for much of this series. It's 30-8 with a kick to come from right in front. All too little, too late for Qld really.

    Thurston is good again. Score now 26-8 with four minutes on the clock.

    Curtains for the Blues. Hodges running riot and sets up Guerra for his second try of the night. This is not the way NSW wanted to end the series. Qld now extend the lead to 24-8 with a kick to come and five minutes remaining.

    The short kick off attempt from NSW is, er, poorly executed. Qld get a penalty from halfway.

    JT, chances of a NSW clean sweep in Origin 2014? 

    Thurston moves in and converts from the sideline. Qld go up 20-8 now with seven minutes left in Origin III.

    Quality work on the left edge and Thurston sets up Darius Boyd for his prerequisite Origin TRY. That's his third for the series and it might be curtains for the blues tonight. Qld lead 18-8 with a kick to come from the left touchline.

    That Hodkinson kick has planted itself firmly on the head of Thaiday. That was a World Cup standard header. NSW couldn't get far in that set but a bit of luck there and they start again. You could here that thud from Ipswich as Hodges sets sail now before being wrapped up. Penalty now to Qld and now Hodges goes and pushes Reynolds, who hits the deck like he's been shot. Too much World Cup?

    Slater scores twelfth Origin try

    Queensland fullback Billy Slater increases the Maroons' lead with a try not long after halftime.

    PT0M20S http://www.canberratimes.com.au/action/externalEmbeddedPlayer?id=d-3bnjq 620 349

    Qld close again but NSW hold the fort. Myles back inside on the fifth but stopped short and NSW have 100m to go if they want some more points. Still 15 minutes left to ample time if they can find the reserves of energy. Qld lead 14-8.

    Hayne cuts loose! Finds support but Qld recover! Game has come alive here but Qld stop that raid and turn it over. Close call... Hayne going up a level here. Surely he's the man of the series.

    Big Mig, what did you think of Dugan's try? 

    Did Ryan Hoffman impede the Queensland defence for Josh Dugan's try? 

    Hodkinson strikes it truly and the Blues edge closer. Qld lead 14-8 with 18 minutes remaining on the clock.

    And over they go! It's gone upstairs with a possible try to Dugan. Obstruction is what they will be checking... but I think this looks the goods. And it's a TRY to the Blues. Game on ladies and gents. Qld lead 14-6 with a kick to come.

    No State of Origin for us tonight @copes9. Cheering from the Capitol theatre #gotheblues http://t.co/K8AJyD4ed7

    Back at ya.... Myles now penalised as he raises the elbow to Bird as he runs it back from the restart. Got him right in the throat. And they're clubmates at the Titans. Should be fun next week. Myles on report and I'd say he's got a case to answer as well. First real chance for NSW since, er, game two.

    Not sure if this Blues fan is unhappy about the on-field action or that he has to drink Queensland beer.

    Penalty Qld. Bird with a lifting tackle on Nate Myles. Gallen over the top but he's not reported. That was NASTY folks. He will have a case to answer and the game just does not need that sort of incident. Myles walks away and Thurston will have a shot from right in front. Qld lead 14-2 now so NSW need two converted tries and change to win the third game. They have 20 minutes.

    Thanks for all the kind best wishes. Not well of late and just having a break. Really enjoying the ch9 coverage from home. Brilliant stuff.

    Cherry on top for Smith

    A Daly Cherry-Evans kick provides Queensland captain Cameron Smith a try for the halftime lead.

    PT0M34S http://www.canberratimes.com.au/action/externalEmbeddedPlayer?id=d-3bnin 620 349

    Lovely from Cronk - sends the kick over to Chambers. Tupou gets it clear but the Maroons win the drop out. Cronk has been quality tonight. Qld lead 12-2 with 23 minutes to play.

    The Coal Train. Drops it again. Holy moly. The replay shows that's a fairly harsh call. Seemed to have it in his grip and the knee of Lewis gave it a nudge. I'll let him through to the next stop.

    Brave take from McManus as the Qld defenders zoned in for the tackle. NSW just looking a bit busted up here. Reynolds battling by the looks of things. Cronk blowing as well. Here's Taylor bursting through... and he drops it. That's virtually his entire career in two seconds. Qld lead 12-2.

    The Coal Train takes the field and steamrolls a few defenders in a spirited first run. DCE, Thurston and Cronk all on there for Qld now.

    Parker has been very good tonight for the Maroons, just gives them that little second phase option in the middle, which has created plenty of space. NSW desperately need something here from one of their big players. Cam Smith bellowing at his players to be 'ruthless' after that try.

    Thurston straight through! Men on either side but he can't thread the needle. Cronk and Slater looming but they wrap him up just short of the line. Desperate defence but it's starting to come apart now for NSW.

    Thurston's curveball is good and Qld lead 12-2 after 46 minutes of Origin III. Worrying signs for the Blues there. They have barely touched the ball tonight.

    Crowd: 50155 #Origin

    — Michael Carayannis(@MCarayannis) July 9, 2014

    And that as just too easy. Qld offloading, loosening the shackles, and Slater just goes right through. TRY to the Maroons and they lead 10-2 with a kick to come. They stood around Hodges and just watched him draw and pass.

    Penalty to Qld. The village not quite on fire yet but Cronk has the Redheads out.

    The teams are now running different directions. Boy those Channel Nine guys come up with some innovations. Hayne, despite being disoriented by the shift in geometry, takes that bomb running back and swings the Blues into action. Chambers is back out there btw. No concussion. Look out Down Under Bar if the lads have a win.

    Ready to roll for the second half of game three and the final half of Origin for 2014, which if you are a journo covering the series, is a very welcome sight to see. There's not much more blood in this stone but let's squeeze out the final drops. And they're off and racing.

    The bittersweet moment of a Queensland try.

    That's the break. Qld lead 6-2 after dominating much of the half, including getting held up a whopping four times by this quite ridiculous NSW defence. The Maroons were able to break it open late after some second-phase play from Parker and Gillett and a slicing run from DCE, who showed plenty of class to set up Cam Smith with the kick ahead. All ahead of the Blues in the second half. Feed me party pies.

    Some Cherry-Evans magic leads to Queensland's first try to Smith. 

    Kick is good. Queensland lead 6-2 with less than a minute until the break.

    AT LAST. Cherry-Evans, now with a functioning leg, goes through like a very sharp cutting implement through very soft butter and puts in a lovely kick ahead for his skipper. Cameron Smith under the posts and Qld lead 4-2 with a kick to come. TRY.

    I was about to put a bet on that it will snow in Roma before the Maroons actually get the ball down but there you go. Way to save five bucks.

    Quick shift to the left and it all goes so very, very wrong for the Maroons. Ball goes sailing over the sideline to nobody. To be honest, he'd have a better chance at actually getting the ball down over the line. Inexplicably, NSW are leading 2-0. Five minutes left in the first half.

    Josh Reynolds might have escaped suspension overliftingtackle in OirginI but he will be gone for a long time over that tackle

    — Brad Walter (@BradWalterSMH) July 9, 2014

    Chambers goes all Karmichael Hunt and barrels at full pace into Josh Reynolds! Reynolds wins as Chambers stays down. But that looks a shoulder charge, surely. He's on report, Qld get the penalty, Chambers leaves the field after doing himself a disservice. All happening. The new winger is... Matt Gillett? Hodges and Gillett will most likely switch around a bit. That's going to stuff up some of those betting specials if one of them scores.

    GI over the line. Again. Held up. Again. That's FOUR.

    NSW survive, Thurston limping. Another injury to a key position player for the Maroons. Looks like it's just a cork as NSW lose it again.

    — Tim Barrow (@TheBarrow) July 9, 2014

    Perfectly worked move, Boyd goes over... and he is HELD UP. That is the third time a Qld player has been held up this half. This NSW defence, what can you say. Just amazing. The Blues leading 2-0 but under heavy fire here.

    More quality ball coming up for the Maroons as NSW knock it on trying to knock down a pass. Surely, surely Qld can conjure something. This has been the story of the entire series really.

    And for those who have no life ....

    Magical kick from Cronk and Chambers is about to score... before Tupou gets the perfect touch and literally knocks it from his hands! More amazing defence from NSW and they are just stopping everything Qld throw at them, again and again. But I have to say the Maroons look a different animal with Cronk at the helm.

    NSW cough it up, Hodkinson grabs it in an offside spot and almost gets away with it! But sanity prevails and the Maroons set sail with a fresh set a few metres out.

    Big Mig, thoughts on NSW failing to find touch with that penalty kick? 

    Great defence in this series, yes. But has the attack - from both sides - been a touch conservative? Huge premium on completions?

    — Phil Lutton(@phillutton78) July 9, 2014

    And right away, another NSW penalty. Hodges with the shoulder charge. But they don't find touch and Slater races it back into the teeth of the defence. And things are just getting a bit heated.... crowd bang up for this game.

    He gets it. We're off to the races here in Brisbane. NSW 2 Qld 0 after 25 minutes.

    Oooops. Te'o in strife for a late shot on Reynolds after the kick. This will be a penalty to NSW. 

    So, the defence in this series has been epic, sure, but has the attack been a touch conservative? Lots of set moves and cross-kicks and high balls but nothing particularly spontaneous.

    Anyway, Te'o on report. NSW get the penalty. And Hodkinson will have a shot at goal.

    Google says the French for 'dead rubber' is 'caoutchouc morts'. Which doesn't sound very exotic at all. So let's stick with dead rubber.

    What was that from Reynolds? NSW finish the set and he just dribbles it over the sideline for a gain of about five metres. Coach killer. A few of these blokes already looked stuffed, Reynolds among them obviously. No score in Le Dead Rubbere.

    Re the no try, Thurston was ruled inside the 10m. All happened very quickly so difficult to tell at full speed. Happy to assume the video ref has that one correct. So still no points in Origin III after 18 minutes, although Qld have looked the closest, going over twice only to be held up. NSW just bombing Slater relentlessly tonight.... very dry, still conditions. No real trouble so far.

    Reckon they have now... no idea how though. Ball bounces around on the ground like it's in the gold lotto bubble and Aidan Guerra has thumped his hand on it over the line. We have a try on the field. Upstairs says.... NO TRY. Well, well, well.... offside maybe? Grounding? Not quite sure. 

    This is anything but a dead rubber! Frantic pace and desperate defense.

    — Eric GrotheJunior (@EricGrotheJnr) July 9, 2014

    Hayne just fended off Guerra for the 35th time. In this match.

    — Phil Lutton(@phillutton78) July 9, 2014

    GI is back tonight! Rampaging through the middle, gets it to Thurston and he's HELD UP. Qld CANNOT SCORE. EVER.

    Hayne has fended off Aidan Guerra about 10 times already. He's the new JT.

    It's now been 115 minutes since Qld scored in this series. Now a penalty to NSW to help them clera their half. Thaiday too slow to get off Gallen.

    Plenty of ball movement already in this game. #origin

    Cronk just ordering the troops around like Patton out there. He's been sorely missed. Lovely kick for Slater and NSW forced to knock it dead via the hand of Hodkinson. They'll drop it out, the Maroons warming to the task. We've had 10 minutes of Origin III.

    Someone who knows GI well told me he was fired up for a big game tonight. #OriginIII

    — Brad Walter (@BradWalterSMH) July 9, 2014

    And another penalty to Qld. Lozza.... you did have that meeting with Tony Archer didn't you?

    Second penalty to Qld as Chambers goes for a scoot off his own line. Went the short side but the markers penalised for not being square (ish). 

    Gallen and Hayne - both excellent early here. They've been the big two for Blues this series.

    Great work big Jim McManus #Origin

    — Jim Morrison (@JimMorrison07) July 9, 2014

    We've got special blog guest Mexican coach Miguel Herrara on the line. How close was Inglis to scoring, Mig? 

    And that will be a red light. NO TRY. Lost it as the NSW defenders piled in on top. No score after six minutes.

    This is already a better game than Origin II. Both teams have shown they are prepared to attack.

    — Brad Walter (@BradWalterSMH) July 9, 2014

    Inglis smashes his way over. Has he scored? Looked messy. No idea. Ref is saying no try - let's go upstairs.

    First penalty of the night to Qld. Just had a nice roll on that set and the Blues doing their utmost to slow it down. So a fresh set for Qld on the NSW 30m line.

    Will Chambers with some nice early touches for Qld. He's keen to show he's no pushover on debut. Push over? See what I did there?

    NSW attacking the edges with vigour here and doing a good job. This already looks a more open affair and we've only had a few minutes. Slater with another great take there as Qld try to battle their way clear of the half. 

    Gallen with the first and third hit-up. Double touch for the Blues skipper as they embark on a terrific first set. The Hayne bomb is huge but Slater comes up with a solid take. 

    And so it begins....

    Good anthem, that. I've changed my mind. Qld to serve. Away we go.

    Not many spare seats at all here tonight. Maybe 51k and change? I got up to 49,000 and then the pies came out so I had to start again. Snap predictions right here:

    Man of the match: Jarryd Hayne

    Player that played well and you didn't even realise he was out there: Ryan Hoffman

    Player responsible for lighting the most fires in the village: Cooper Cronk

    Did you know? James McManus is playing for NSW. IRL.

    Most predictable step that nobody seems to predict: Justin Hodges (it's off the right, if any players are reading)

    Not long to go now folks. The Brothers Madden are singing for our/your/everybody's pleasure now. At least it's not Justice Crew, although they may as well be Bruce Springsteen if you happen to be my eight-year-old daughter. And if you are my daughter, go to bed. Back at the footy, we're getting closer to the finale of the 2014 series. Game one here was a flat-out all-timer. Game two was, well, I'm not sure. Great outcome for NSW but the game never really soared I didn't think. I'm just hoping we see some running rugby league here to ice the cake for the year. 

    Predictions? First one that says 'pain' wins one of the books from my desk. Not Juiced though.

    Good evening folks. Welcome to our live coverage of Origin III from Suncorp Stadium. They say there's no such thing as a dead rubber, although that's a complete fib become I'm staring at one right now. However, we can probably tweak that to suggest most Origin dead rubbers are above the average dead piece of rubber. Remember 2009? I was only watching that this afternoon, carefully shielding the eyes of the children when I saw Brett White about to wind up and lay out Steve Price. Fiery encounter.... will we see anything like that tonight? With the 'no punch' rule, maybe not. But I just have a feeling all that rubbish, annoying little niggling throughout the series could really erupt tonight the first sign of a forearm to the face.

    Weather report.... lovely night, chilly for Brisbane but that's anything under 15 degrees. Not sure if it's a complete sell out but I'd say there will only be a few hundred seats left. My predictions have been completely useless all series but I may as well try to shoot another fish with my last spear. I'll say Queensland by 12 tonight, mostly on the back of Cooper Cronk's return. Kid goes good.

    Shout out to anyone reading from exotic destinations around the world. Let us know if where you are.... Dubbo doesn't count as 'exotic', for the record.

    • Just as Pearce was the (negative) difference in recent series, Cronk has been the (positive) difference when he's played in this one. I'm not convinced that Hodkinson & Reynolds are the best halves available in NSW, but they're certainly an improvement, and it's hard to argue with success. Well done NSW for winning the series, well done QLD for showing them tonight how the game should be played.

    • Wouldn't it be good if the referees had the guts to send the backchatting louts off.

      • Wear the fox - your comment that "40k+ at the ground seem to care". I am new to league, but is not 40K a flop? I seem to remember the AFL often getting 80,000 to a regular home and away game.

      • @JD 2014 average attendance for AFL is 32, 635. But don't let that spoil your argument.

        Average attendance for NRL is 16,126.

      • I care. And, quite obviously, so did QLD (and so did NSW, but they just weren't good enough). If you think that was a dead rubber, you just don't understand what's at stake.

      • Thanks Dan - but I never said anything about averages, rather "some" games.. I recall for example that an Essendon v Collingwood game early this year was over 90k, and I am fairly sure there have been others around 80k

      • And if NSW had thrashed QLD tonight, all these NSW supporters would still be saying "dead rubber, pointless game", right?

    • As the haze of the football world cup semi fades, I'm following Origin while waiting for a plane in Tegel airport, Berlin.

      Care factor from Germans? Precisely nil! And understandably so...

      C'mon Blues! Bring it home and sweep it clean!
