Well, done, boys! What a great win!
Backs-to-the-wall, tight and tense. Great stuff - what Origin is made of.
And well done to the Blues, too. They looked the better team for much of the game and the second half was a real arm wrestle ... good footy.
But I gotta say it: Braith Anasta showed yet again that at the level he's just not creative enough to play 5/8. Mitchell Pearce is an awesome prospect and the Blues forwards made plenty of yards, but there just wasn't the creativity to get the Blues across the Qld line when it counted - and that was Anasta's job.
And how good does this make Mal Meninga's career? Won a three-peat as a player and also as a coach. Amazing guy, Mal, and an incredible footballer.
Bring it on next year ...Posted by Hughie at July 3, 2008 9:40 AM
