Oh Yes!

It was the moment the Origin crown came back to Queensland. The Maroon miracle men overcame a series of controversial calls to snatch a magnificant victory in the dying stages of last night's State of Origin series decider in Melbourne.

Video referee Graeme West had been the most hated man in Queensland whom a series of botched decisions apprear to cost the Maroons any chance of State of Origin redemption.

It was a thrilling struggle through to the final moments, with Queensland dominating the first half before doing hard battle in the second.

There were a few colourful moments resulting from the transplant of league's showpiece game to Victoria - especially when the AFL Legend and Channel Nine commentator Dermott Brereton introduced the match as "Brisbane" vs NSW.

But in the end it didn't matter. Queensland ruled again.
