Last updated at 15:22 13 June 2007


Queensland have secured back-to-back State of Origin titles after a controversial 10-6 win over New South Wales in front of 76,924 at the Telstra Stadium.

Winger Steve Bell's try broke the 6-6 deadlock with 16 minutes to go, although there appeared to be a forward pass in the lead-up.

The win, Queensland's first at Olympic headquarters in 12 visits, is their fourth straight triumph over their great rivals and the first time since 1989 that they have taken out consecutive Origin series.
