Rabbitoh and Maroon, Greg Inglis, was pleased to finish the 2014 State of Origin Series on a positive on Wednesday by coming away with an emphatic 32-8 victory over the Blues to avoid a clean sweep.
“It’s been a great ending to a Series,” Inglis told QRLTV. “But unfortunately we didn’t walk away with a Series win.”
While the victory was a team effort, Inglis praised the efforts and talents of Queensland and Test halfback Cooper Cronk.
Cronk – who missed Game II after injuring his shoulder in Game I – returned for the third and final Origin instalment of 2014 with scintillating effects.
“We had more direction with Cooper in there,” said Inglis.
“You could see everything change when Cooper was in the side. Everyone who puts on the Maroon jersey goes out and does their utmost best, but having Cooper there makes a real big difference.”
“Even though we lost the Series, we wanted to put a good performance in so we can build to next year,” said Inglis.
