The Aussies ended up being too good but they had to work hard. Good solid work from the pack with BK and Mason being huge. Too much class in the end. The test proved that a good 9, 7, 6 and 1 are essential. All were outstanding and Australia looked better when Lockyer went back. Well done to Hunt who didn't let anyone down and did some good things. From a Manly perspective Beaver and BK did well. BK is so tough and runs so hard. I loved it when he ran at Benji and made 20 metres. Tahu continued his good form, the Aussie pattern was super and the players rewarded the selectors. From an Origin viewpoint the loss of Joey and BK is huge and NSW are going to need to find a decent 5/8.
