Both teams getting ready to enter the field. Not far away now.
In case you're wondering, in the Ashes England have won the toss and are batting first. What a day of sport!
....and the crowd boooos.
Queensland are making them wait as the crowd gives it to them.
Here comes Cam Smith and the Maroons.
Now it's Advance Australia Fair.
The ground is girt by Queenslanders singing it loud.
Parker is driven down to the ground in the third tackle and early biff
A mistake by Hodges, Ennis looks to strip the back but it's called a knock-on.
Early chance for NSW inside the Queensland 40.
Gallen runs the ball towards the 20. 3rd tackle.
Last tackle and Mitchell Pearce kicks for the corner. A nice take by Dane Gagai but he then spills the ball on impact with the ground. NSW scrum 10m out.
Gallen gets 5m short of the try line. Blues going close and then get an early penalty. Nate Myles called for holding the man down and they'll take the two points.
Trent Hodkinson lines it up and converts. NSW 2-0.
So NSW on the board first. And they have the ball again Hoffman then Gallen take it over their own 20m.
Ennis kicks on the last but Inglis catches it on the full and then Queensland get a penalty early in the set.
They start the new set on the NSW 40 and Thaiday takes the ball over the 30m. Queensland's first chance of the match.
And another penalty as Woods holds down the player. Just like down the other end and Queensland will take the two points as well.
Thurston kicks it. It's 2-2
Queensland now with the ball as Chambers takes the ball towards halfway.
A big bomb from Thurston and Dugan does great work under pressure. But NSW are pegged inside their own 20. Already 4th tackle.
But a strong run from Dugan gets them over the 40 and Trent Hodkinson kicks deep for GI.
Another penalty for Queensland early in the set.
And it was Woods again. 3-1 penalty count to Queensland.
Queensland now move into NSW territory. Matt Scott with a strong run takes the ball over the 30.
Queensland go wide left but NSW hold strong. They come back across the field and still can't find a gap.
The set ends with Thurston kicking wide to Darius Boyd, he jumps high and flicks the ball back into play but it hits his own man and goes into touch,
But Queensland get the ball back a few tackles into the NSW set after a big hit from Matt Scott sees the ball in the deck.
Queensland now just 10 short.
The man on debut dives over in the corner but the video ref is checking for a knock-on earlier in the play.
It looks fine though. Queensland spread the ball right after a break and just had too many numbers.
The try is given and Queensland had the first try of the night.
Thurston kicks it from the sideline. Great kick. Queensland 8-2.
Matt Scott runs the ball up from the kickoff. Inglis makes a half break as Queensland get over halfway.
Cronk ends the set with another high kick for Dugan. NSW start the set from their own 10m
Pearce kicks of the last but it goes straight to Boyd. Queensland now in NSW half as Parker moves over the 20m. 5th tackle...
Cronk grubbers and it looks to deep but somehow Inglis just flicks the ball back into play before it goes dead but NSW get the ball first. They then knock on early in their set. Queensland with the ball hot on attack
Inglis just a metre short of the line.
Thaiday then tackled just short.
The set ends with Thurston kicking high but Brett Morris catches it inside the in-goal. 20m restart. SOme good defence there by NSW and then they get a penalty early in the set. Nice piggyback to halfway
