State of Origin has come to a conclusion again, with New South Wales managing to bounce back in 2021 with a 2-1 series victory.

The Blues were unstoppable across the opening two matches, but failed to capitalise on the chance of a sweep come the series finale.

With all three games being played in Queensland, the men from south of the Tweed were up against a tough fight.
