The blues had an attacking set inside qld's 30m zone - tackle 4 woods goes 1 out, tackle 5 gallen goes 1 out seriously wtf were the halves doing allowing that? The mindset was all wrong from the get go

Yep thankfully next year there shouldnt be Pearce and Hodkinson in the halves, time for A Reynolds and Austin.

Ealry penalty goal by NSW baffled me. They were about to have their 4th consecutive set after dominating possession and position the first 5 mins. Instead they let QLD off the hook. Early turning point IMO.

God that game was so satisfying on so many levels, first and foremost after that disgusting attack on Cameron Smith by 60 Minutes it was fantastic to see him hoist the shield at the end.

It was also so good to see Klemmer's massive ego getting smashed off the field, and the way you NSW fans and the team themselves have carried on the last three weeks it seems you've once again forgotten there's a third game.

Lastly, as a Canberra Raiders fan it was great seeing Paps get another call up, and score a great try

Best Origin game I've ever been to

Seriously, most blues fans didn't expect to come close this series let alone perform as well as we did in the first two games. Qlders are notorious for getting ahead of themselves, weren't they talking about a 10year streak before they even won their 8th

That "rare win" doesn't mean you pat yourself on the back, put the cue in the rack and fail to be mentally prepared for the decider. I struggle to believe you could think otherwise.

Ah sorry, I forgot fans were meant to mentally prepare for the decider, I'll remember that for next year hopefully that will get the win.

As for the players they looked prepared early until a flood of possession went against them.

NSW lost to a superior team that had an unheard of amount of possession plain and simple.

IMO, when NSW were attacking in the first ten minutes they were doing it at snail's-pace, and there was very little movement of the ball. Line-speed was pretty poor from kick-off too. Qld were ready and fired up. NSW never got out of first gear. Pathetic effort really.

Dont blame the refs. Cop it sweet.
Did you miss the shoulder charge on Hopoate from Matt Scott that caused the knock on that gifted Qld their first try... That was one of 5 shoulder charges from Qld players that went unnoticed... That's just one example... The 10m was a joke again like in game 1... There's a reason Thaiday was able to jump on so many dropped balls...

Like I said Qld were the better team, but the game would have been a lot closer if the Refs called the game, not what the crowd was telling them to do...

Not saying NSW deserved the win, they didn't... But the Refs took away any chance we might have had to turn it around...

Hopefully that's the final nail in the Pearce and Hodkinson coffins... Next year we'll see Reynolds and Blake Austin at the helm...

Spot on. We landed in Brisbane last night and in the cab to our hotel there was some Origin lead-up on the radio and Ray Hadley or one of those wankers was talking about how NSW had no fear for Lang Park anymore, how the Queensland pack was too old, and how the likes of David Klemmer would run over the top of them. Didn't even mention the pure class that Queensland still possessed throughout their whole squad.

It appears the NSW team were listening to the same show.

They don't send off for those any more. Ref could have easily sin binned him for the follow up swinging arm. Just say it's a punch and give him a spell.

All up it was a ridiculous series of actions by Tamou and typified NSW discipline. Ironically it was Gallen who kept the most level head.

You're kidding right? At the Titans v Tigers game, Moses coat-hangered Zillman. It earned a penalty, but wasn't put on report and he wasn't cited. You pretty much have to bludgeon someone to death with one of your footy boots to get sent off in the NRL these days.

Mass changes likely, with half the Blues squad under pressure to retain spots

Up to half of the NSW side is facing the prospect of not pulling on the Blue jersey again after the stunning capitulation in the State of Origin decider at Lang Park.

NSW Blues were stunned into silence on bus back to hotel

It was the 15-minute bus ride from Lang Park to the team hotel after the Blues thrashing which indicated how demoralised the NSW team were.

That's a bit over the top. The forwards are young, were outstanding in Game 2 and will only improve. With the exception of Hopoate, the outside backs have been great servants. The problem is the halves, and have been for the best part of a decade.

I thought at the time, that the refs would send him. It was definitely a stiff arm, really pushing the boundaries of a send off for a high shot.
