Greatest Origin performances: No.10 Greg Inglis

Building up to the State of Origin decider at Suncorp Stadium, we’re counting down the 10 greatest individual performances in Origin history.

At No.10 we’ve selected Greg Inglis’ blockbusting display in game two of the 2008 series.

Lining up in the centres for Queensland, Inglis was kept relatively quiet by the Blues – besides one dazzling sideline burst – in a disappointing 18-10 series-opening loss in Sydney.

But the then-Melbourne superstar was an overwhelming man-of-the-match in the 30-0 game two victory, terrorising the NSW right-side three-quarter combination of Mark Gasnier and Storm teammate Steve Turner by making four devastating line breaks – including two that produced tries for debutant Maroons winger Darius Boyd.

Inglis finished with 172 running metres and 19 tackles in a dominant solo effort.
