Works for a Premiership though! We play 3 fullbacks and 1 GOAT.
Very true! But Bellamy is a master for finding that potential in players. He knew Munster was a fullback and Hughes was a halfback before even they did!

Munster going down early really hurt Qld but once again a failure from DCE to lead by example.

NSW changes all worked a treat.

Yeah, Qld was woeful last night... so clunky in attack... Munster was a huge loss for them.

So... Game 3, NSW to receive the kick-off. QLD kick it to Payne Hass' side of the field, Tino sprinting to get to him for first contact and... ?

Payne Haas must have been reading the papers all week. Was MIA for the game.

Munster dead set had spiders on him. He was just so in the zone. I hope he plays with that same demanding confidence next year as well.

We're just wild about Harry. Brilliant debut.

Also:
- Great game by Eddie.
- Welsh was solid and again the pressure he applied really impacted Cleary's kicking game as in the GF and Game 1
- Brenko did his job well
- Kafusi was good in defence and attach, but was extremely fortunate not to wind up in the bin for blatant hanging on.

On the other side:
- Dale was solid without being spectacular
- Not playing Paps was a HUGE mistake by Fittler
We must all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately

Yep, as soon as Tedesco had to go off, NSW were cooked with no Papi to come off the bench.

QLD's win this year rivals Fatty's Heroes in 1995 as one of the Maroons' greatest ever Origin series victories.

Where's the Origin shield?

THAT'S IN QUEENSLAND!

Yeah agree with all that, just want to add Dale should have had more minutes, he was one of their best in Game 2.

Also, is "Eddie" Edrick Lee? Heard rumours he may have been coming to us?
