Triple M's Gorden Tallis believes defensive mistakes were to blame for Queensland's loss in Origin 1 not the contentious calls made by the referees. 

Uncharacteristically, the Maroons missed a whopping 53 tackles (compared to NSW's 24), completed at only 81% with nine errors including Will Chamber's dropped ball which led to the Blues opening try of the match. 

The former Queensland captain has told Triple M Brisbane's Dead Set Legends, the focus for the Maroons should centre around their defensive errors in the lead up to Game 2.
