IT'S the most talked about try in State of Origin history.

It could well be the most talked about try in rugby league memory.

Queensland coach Mal Meninga -- who will be shooting for nine straight Origin series' win over NSW this year -- shows a video of it to his players every time they start a new Origin camp.

From inside their own half in game one of the '94 series with time rapidly running out and trailing 12-10,  halfback Allan Langer shifts the ball left to hooker Kerrod Walters.

Walters quickly links with winger Willie Carne who then floats an overhead pass the centre Steve Renouf -- easily recognisable by his familiar headgear.

The Pearl screams down the left touch line.

With the NSW defence closing fast, Renouf tosses the ball back inside to winger Michael Hancock who swings the movement back to the right.

Just when it appears the Blues have snuffed out of the movement 30 metres out, Hancock shovels the ball onto back-up specialist Jason Smith who continues heading toward the right corner.

Again the NSW defence appear to have arrived in time.

The skilful Smith draws two of them in before off-loading to the ever-alter Langer who started the sweeping movement 40 metres downfield.

Langer lets his second pass go perfectly just as his skipper Mal Meninga surges up in his shoulder.

With the huge crowd now of its feet roaring, Meninga makes it to the 10m line and flings the 10th and final pass of the movement to Coyne.

Now hear how Coyne finished off the greatest Origin try to that now famous cry:  "that's not a try, that's a miracle.
