    I mean he’ll come back into our side an even better player, having had a good game in his first origin. It was a good game, but he’s capable of better.

    Oh right.

    Capable of better?? Um maybe scoring a try but that's about it.

    If you heard Fittler after the match he said QLD really slowed that ruck so Cookie couldn't be as electric. In origin though it mostly is a slow ruck and that's when the doubters of which their were many on here including our Souths fellow forumers said Cookie wouldn't shine with the slow ruck. Well my oath he shine so so brightly and has to be very selective in when he ran and all and he passed with flying colours.... a few great kicks too.

    55 tackles with 1 missed. Can't do any better than that really. That's just brilliant....

    Sorry mate I just don't see how he can improve much on that.... it'll be consistently playing like that now and I believe he can!!!!!

    Good game means about a 7/7.5 out of 10. I give him a 9.5 out of 10 for that. Fittler called his performance incredible..........

    I give Tedesco a 10/10 and that's why he's man of MOM.

    My 3-2-1 are:

    Tedesco
    Cook
    Maloney


    Maloney couldn't do what he does without those fast and crisp bullet like passes from Cookie...

    If a player can’t improve, then there’s only way to go from there. If your saying he just played the perfect game of footy, then you’re right he’s not capable of more. But I like to think he just played a blinder, and the beauty is, he’s capable of improving.

    All he has to do is maintain that is what I'm trying to say!!!

    If that wasn't the best performance from a Blues hooker in many years I'll be damned.......... call me bias lol but that was bloody brilliant.. I am so pumped!!!!!!!!!!!

    I actually completely agree. The levels he could reach as a player this late in his career are phenomenal. Trying not to get too cocky as a blues supporter as this happens every year but I really hope we can pull off the win this series.

    I keep saying this but having 4 origin players is a massive hats off to the coaching staff as well. It’s just such a shame that we’re losing Angus next year as he has also really elevated as a player to a level that I personally didn’t expect. The roosters will easily have one of the best backrows in the comp next year.

    Cant agree this time STID.3 of our 4 were very good,(cookie outstanding),but angus was poor.sideways running and offloads under extreme pressure in your end of the field do not help the teams cause.also,like always,his defense has no sting,enabling qld to offload several times.hence the 5 rating in a winning team.

    QLD supporters blowing up over refereeing errors.

    Didn't you get to watch the game?

    No not all do in here mate. A few prefer McInnes who is a tortoise compared to Cookie. He's copped some very unwarranted criticism in here too from some. I always believed in him though! I could sense he could become something special!

    The ones that aren't keen on him are very quiet in this thread.......

    Anyhow mate I hope you're right!

    I am glad you believe in him just like I do!

    If you were at ANZ last year mate when Madge made the mistake of bench warming him and not believing in him or letting him play how he wanted the we want Cookie chants started and then the ovation when he finally came on. He's a member favourite is Cookie yet a few on some forums are the tiny handful that aren't that keen on him!

    Didn't want him to play the way he can. Wanted him on a leash!

    Didn't have faith in him!

    It's a big criticism I had of Madge!

    Our members got impatient at games with him on the bench that's for sure!

    I notice Doyen is quiet lol

    Did you watch him play last year? Let’s not pretend Cookie was playing like this, that has changed possibly due to coaching but he was dire at times last year.

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion, as long as it is the same as yours.

    Very good game from Cook last night, like almost every other blue jersey but origin is a long series and we've seen Queensland rebound from a game one loss as recently as 12 months ago.

    That said, I'm not sure Qld can put out a better side. Ponga or Munster to FB, with Morgan either to the bench or 6 and Scott for any prop in Maroon and that's almost it. Maybe Oates somewhere too. The talent of the past decade isn't there anymore and they're now back with the pack a lot like the Australian cricket team post Warne, McGrath, etc.
