Blues star Isaah Yeo has tasted victory in his debut on the State of Origin circuit, defeating the Queensland Maroons 34-10.

Yeo told Mark Levy he and his family are proud of the achievement.

“Everyone who’s been in that position has said that … it’s a dream come true, and I’m no exception.

“You run around like a headless chicken for about five minutes until you finally settle yourself down. It was everything it was hyped up to be.”

Fellow Panther Nathan Cleary received praise post-match for leading NSW to victory, and his teammate backed up the verdict.

“He was the best player in the park … it was obviously outstanding, and went a long way to us winning the game.”
