Queensland defeats New South Wales - 2007 State of Origin - Telstra Dome, Sydney

Queensland rejoices!
Mal Meninga - Qld coach - and Darren Lockyer - Qld captain - led the Maroons to a 2-0 victory in the 2007 State of Origin series at the Telstra Dome in Sydney to-night.
How wonderful to have Mal winning for Queensland once more.
Congratulations to Darren Lockyer!
The first captain since The King, Wally Lewis, to win back to back Origins.
And all this at Telstra Dome in Sydney which so often has seemed to work against Queensland.
Oh - what a night!
Origin 2 did not have the brilliance and lightness of the second half of Origin 1.
Origin 2 was marked by determination and doggedness on the part of both teams.
The 10-6 score said it all, really.
Queensland was out to stop Willy Mason and Brett Kimmorley.
They were assisted by the absence due to injury of Mr Everywhere, Anthony Minichiello.
