QLD SIX PACK!!!
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 2012.......it just gets bettter
