from Rugby League Ireland On a wet and windy day the Northern Ireland Elks showed their mettle to not only win an absorbing game but to also take rugby league’s McGettigans State of Origin series for the very first time.Northern Ireland held a narrow four-point win from game one of the series in Galway – their first ever win over the Republic in a State of Origin match. And the Elks grounded the Eagles again in game two at Portadown RFC on Saturday, to make history.Despite a red-hot start, the Eagles trailed for the vast majority of the game before they rallied and gave themselves a shot at glory before time ran out on them.The Eagles kicked off and were immediately in good field position due to a knock on and followed this up with an excellent burst by Simon Deevy to score a try under the posts, which was converted by Peter O’Neill.This spurred the Elks into action and soon after they were level as Connor Phillips scooted through the defence to score close to the sticks and Adam Doherty added the extras.
