State of Origin: Kalyn Ponga gives up Mitchell Pearce secrets ahead of series decider

State of Origin: Kalyn Ponga gives up Mitchell Pearce secrets ahead of series decider Ponga will miss Origin III with a calf injury but was happy to give his fellow Maroons advice on how best to shut down his Knights team-mate and Blues half-back Pearce.

Band of Brothers is a 2001 American war drama miniseries based on historian Stephen E. Ambrose's 1992 non-fiction book Band of Brothers .

The Blues Brothers are an American blues and soul revivalist band founded in 1978 by comedy actors Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live.

On Monday night, the jumpers NSW players would wear in the State of Origin decider were laid out on a table in the team room at the Pullman Hotel.

Coach Brad Fittler had given his players a message earlier in the day, asking them to consider what it meant to be pulling on the sky-blue jersey for such an important match.

When the time came, they had to share those feelings with the rest of the group.

When it was Mitchell Pearce’s turn to collect the No.7, the room fell silent. Pearce’s bottom lip quivered, and he struggled to get out the words he’d prepared in his head.

A Band of Brothers is a North Texas-based band whose music is a southern fried blend of Texas Country, Blues and Rock & Roll. It's the sound fans across the country expect to hear when they think of the true Texas Sound!

He’s not the emotional type but it was hardly surprising. After the Blues’ loss in the 2017 series decider, most thought he’d played his last Origin.

Then it was his teammates’ turn to speak. Many of them spoke about Pearce. “We want to win this match for you, Mitch,” was the general tone of what many said, according to those in the room.

It was an extraordinary gesture for someone who hadn’t played in the first two matches; who hadn’t played with many of these players; who had been kicked in the teeth time and time again when NSW lost.

Last night, before 82,565 fans at ANZ Stadium, Pearce finally buried one of the game’s most fabled hoodoos, winning his first Origin series — in his 19th match for his state — as the Blues triumphed 26-20 against Queensland.

'There’s a lot of mental scars there'

'There’s a lot of mental scars there' Queensland will target Blues half Mitchell Pearce’s “mental scars” when he kits up for NSW for the first time since 2017.

Blues Brothers 2000 is a 1998 American musical comedy film that is a sequel to the 1980 film The Blues Brothers , written and produced by John Landis and Dan Aykroyd.

Having been parachuted into the side to replace the injured Nathan Cleary, Pearce wasn’t brilliant but tradesman-like, fighting and scraping like his life depended on it.

He did what he had to do.

But this was fullback James Tedesco’s match. It was his series, really. Much like last year.

With just seconds to go, with the scores locked at 20-all, after winger Blake Ferguson had danced along the sideline and managed to hook a one-handed pass inside, Tedesco scored in the corner ... and the entire state of NSW exploded.

It was 8-8 at half-time and as both teams retreated up the tunnel Maroons enforcer Josh McGuire barked at any Blues player within earshot.

He had good reason to be cocky.

The Blues had started $1.28 favourites with the bookmakers — the shortest price since the 1995 series when Paul Vautin took control of a ragtag Queensland side missing most of its stars because of Super League.

'It feels a bit surreal': Pearce is finally on the right side of Origin history

'It feels a bit surreal': Pearce is finally on the right side of Origin history This 80 minutes was meant to inform us about Mitchell Pearce in a way that 268 NRL appearances and 18 previous State of Origin matches never could. That somehow all that he has and will achieve will be seen through the prism of this one performance and somehow put it all into its proper perspective. Of course, it doesn’t work like that. The result, aside from determining where the shield went, would also determine what we made of Pearce. You can’t get a 20th call-up unless the ledger is at least partly redressed. The Newcastle captain’s record still makes his state wince but at least it registers a series win.

Instead of meekly surrendering as predicted, the Maroons hijacked the match just like they did in that series 24 years ago.

Prop Josh Papalli went mad, makeshift fullback Cameron Munster stepped like a ghost and Corey Norman looked nothing like the Origin roadkill he was expected to become.

He set Munster free time and time again and then put in a perfect grubber for backrower Felise Kaufusi to score the opening try.

The Blues had trawled through video of Norman, noticing how he favoured his left shoulder when defending because of his injured right shoulder.

They went in with the plan of running Tyson Frizell at him.

But, typical of their first half, they couldn’t work the play his way. Norman made just four tackles for the half and missed none.

The flow of play wasn’t aided by referee Gerard Sutton waiting for the biggest match of the year to make it all about him, blowing 10 penalties in the first 28 minutes.

Admittedly, the two penalties Queensland gave away on their own tryline were justified.

Mitchell Pearce has been preparing for this match his whole life

Mitchell Pearce has been preparing for this match his whole life The Blues halfback has had coaches at every level telling him from an early age how to play the game. Suddenly, it all makes sense. He realises what they're talking about.

Band of Brothers , subtitled, E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne: From Normandy to Hitler's Eagle's Nest, by Stephen E. Ambrose is an examination of a parachute infantry company in the 101st Airborne Division in the European Theater during World War II.

The battle is not easy with the Germans putting up fierce resistance . The situation is particularly dire for Sgt. Bull Randelman who is separated from the rest of the Company and is forced to hide out in a local barn overnight as the Germans move in.

It allowed the Blues to finally crack the Maroons defence with prop Paul Vaughan crashing through. Without them, it may not have come.

In the second half, the referees put the whistle away and the match eventually opened up into an all-time Origin classic.

The big Maroons forwards quickly grew tired. Eventually, the Blues’ speed men found them out.

First, Tedesco scored in the corner. Soon after, Damien Cook skipped around Papalli who had just come back and then turned Munster inside out.

But Queensland don’t stop. They are the Living Dead. They are the White Walkers. A team of Night Kings.

When McGuire bounced over, bringing the Maroons back within six points, they were exactly where they want to be: throwing the ball to the edges, spooking NSW with every touch.

Ethan Lowe charged down a Maloney kick and then Papalli score. Then Lowe slotted the pressure conversion.

This time, though, NSW held on.

They won this series amid a ripple of criticism over the way Fittler picked and ran the team.

Privately, some NRL coaches dismissed Fittler as a giggling sideline commentator and not much of a coach at all.

None of it really matters now, though.

The Blues have won their first back-to-back series since 2004-05 on his watch.

That was unfathomable only a few years ago — about as improbable as Mitchell Pearce being the one to help deliver it.
