How good was that to fin­ish

WHATWH a game and what a night.nig

I can’t re­ally com­pare what I w went through on Wed­nes­day nig night to any­thing I’ve exp ex­pe­ri­enced be­fore.

It’s a feel­ing that is cer­tainly har hard to de­scribe and I just feel for for­tu­nate to have been a part of i it all.

You never re­ally pick a sc score like that be­fore the start o of a game, but we gave o our­selves ev­ery chance by th the way we pre­pared the we week lead­ing in.

You could just tell from the ver very start the boys were det de­ter­mined to get the job done and it was great to get that mo mo­men­tum, and at half- time we talked about just con con­tin­u­ing with the same job.

Some­times that’s when thi things can drop off a bit, but tha that’s when it picked up aga again and eve ev­ery­thing we did just see seemed to wo work.

There was a bit of talk about the boys bei be­ing too old dur­ing the leadup up, and of the Queens­land dyn dy­nasty com­ing to an end, but the boys well and truly showed the they are not past it.

They played great football and I cer­tainly hope to keep bei be­ing a part of it, and af­ter exp ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a game like that it m makes you want it more.

Scor­ing a try also added to the ex­pe­ri­ence and it’s one I sup­pose I’ll re­mem­ber for the rest of my life.

It was lucky we had a fair bit of ball and I just stayed in­side Ai­dan Guerra, and then I got over the line.

I also took a mo­ment af­ter one of our tries just to have a mo­ment to my­self and soak in the at­mos­phere and the roar of the crowd.

One of the other high­lights was be­ing able to send Justin Hodges out as a win­ner, and it was great to see him

kick that con­ver­sion at the end. I got to ex­pe­ri­ence be­ing part of a whole Ori­gin se­ries and it’s been a real priv­i­lege to play along­side those boys.

The ex­cite­ment is still there and I’m sure all my Cowboys team­mates will en­joy the next few days off dur­ing our bye, but then it’s back to busi­ness.

My fo­cus will go back into the Cowboys and mak­ing sure we fin­ish the sea­son strongly. We’ve put our­selves in a good po­si­tion and I can’t wait to get back out there and do my best for the club.
