A number of Newcastle Knights were a part of the State of Origin excitment again in game three of the 2016 series played at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday night. 

The Maroons' Dane Gagai featured on the wing in game three, and although NSW posted an 18-16 win in Sydney, Queensland took out the series with wins in the first two matches. 

Meanwhile Young Knights  Jack Cogger (halfback) and Cory Denniss (centre) were proudly victiorious over Queensland in the curtain-raiser U20s State of Origin match. 

The U20s NSW side defeated the Maroons 36-22 with Cogger lifting the Darren Lockyer Shield at the end of the game which was the fifth straight win for the NSW side.
