In front of a crowd in excess of 91,000 at the MCG, the NSW team has leveled the 2015 State of Origin series at one game all with a 26-18 victory. 

Led by an inspirational performance from Sharks skipper Paul Gallen, the Blues battled back late in the match after giving up their half time lead, a Josh Dugan in the 70th minute putting his team eight points clear and on course for victory. 

While the likes of Michael Jennings, Aaron Woods and David Klemmer were amongst the best for the Blues, it was the gutsy effort from Gallen while playing with a painful rib injury, which helped lift his team over the line.

The NSW victory sets up an exciting Game 3 at Suncorp Stadium in Queensland on July 8, with Gallen now set to race the clock in a bid to be fit for the series decider.

There was some outstanding football played by both teams at the MCG last night, see the match highlights, now playing on Sharks TV.
