While Latrell Mitchell was once again a standout, the ending of NSW' Game Three loss could've been a whole different story had the Blues opted against giving the star centre a long-range penalty goal in an attempt to tie the game up.

With the Blues trailing 20-18 with just under two minutes remaining, a high tackle from Maroons forward Christian Welch on Mitchell Moses handed the Blues a penalty right on halfway.

While it remains unclear at this stage whether the decision came from Mitchell, skipper James Tedesco or Brad Fittler in the coaching box, the Blues rolled the dice rather than kicking for touch to set up an attacking set deep in Maroons' territory.
