IT has taken me a while to collect my thoughts and clear my head after a night of wild Queensland celebrations. What a night and what an Origin series. Qld were just superb in most aspects of the game last night, but there was some lazy efforts which led to NSW tries during the game. Qld could, and should have been more ruthless, however you can't say a bad thing against the NSW side, who toiled gamely all night.

Origin is back and even with QLD now winning SIX series straight, the passion from NSW supporters will only grow from here. They have a taste of what Origin is all about for QLD...beaten and downtrodden in the old interstate series, until given a chance with Origin. NSW must now feel that spark.

Some big thanks to Ricky Stuart for instilling some old seige mentality into Origin and for the creation of many headlines. A big thanks to Paul Gallon.....the way he played this series has changed opinions of this man right around the league world, and he will be a worthy NSW captain for many years to come. Jamie Soward came of age... and I just hope this NSW team sticks together as they will become more formidable in future years.

For QLD....what a way for a champion to go out....Congrats Darren Lockyer. I was also so impressed with Jonathon Thurston last night. NSW dominated him early with rushing defence but the champion soon found a way to silence them. It was brilliant. Cam Smith, Billy Slater, Greg Inglis were all just superb and Matt Scott was the most dominant forward on the field for mine.......

Roll on Origin just gets bettter
