They were written off as the worst team to ever come out of Queensland, but the Maroons have won the State of Origin series against New South Wales.
The Maroons finished with a 20-14 win over the Blues in the series decider at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium.
Captain Daly Cherry-Evans says it required more than just the efforts of the players.
“I’d like to thank not just this team, but everyone who’s supporting us at home – we made a lot of sacrifices and there’s a lot of people at home who can’t be here tonight, so thank you!” Cherry-Evans told the crowd of around 50,000 supporters.
“Thank you to everyone in this stadium – this is the best stadium in the world…and on behalf of the ‘worst ever Queensland team’, thank you very much!”
Cameron Munster was awarded the 2020 Wally Lewis Medal for Man of the Series.
