Blues and Maroons set for State of Origin decider

The State of Origin decider set to be a sell-out in Sydney (

It's all on the line in Rugby League's State of Origin this afternoon as New South Wales Blues host Queensland Maroons for the third and final game in Sydney.

The Blues levelled matters with an emphatic win in game two in Perth after the Maroons edged the series opener in Brisbane.

Queensland were yesterday dealt a major blow heading into the decider as back-rower Matt Gillett was ruled out with a groin injury.

Nathan Cleary, who injured his ankle in the previous match, and the suspended Tariq Sims are missing for the Blues, with Mitchell Pearce and David Klemmer set to start in their place.

New South Wales are aiming to win the series in front of their fans for the first time since 2004, while Queensland will hope to record their eighth straight victory in a series decider.
