Game I was played at Telstra Stadium, Sydney, and won by New South Wales 17-16, following a late field goal by NSW late-choice halfback, Brett Finch.

Craig Gower was originally picked for the New South Wales side at halfback but pulled out because of injury. Matt Orford was forced to turn down selection as cover for Gower, also because of injury. Both Andrew Johns and Trent Barrett turned down coming out of retirement to play in the fixture [ [http://www.rleague.com/db/article.php?id=25312 "Finch replaces Gower"] ] so eventually Brett Finch was selected to wear the number 7 for New South Wales.

The Queensland selectors picked a total of seven State of Origin debutants for game I.
