No love lost for Maroons

IT WASN'T the result we were looking for, but the Queensland spirit on display didn't die even in the final moments of Game III.

It was a night of triumph for the niche group of Blues supporters who, surrounded by Maroon, showed off their true colours and were happy to leave the pub with a 26-20 win in their back pocket.

But spirits stayed high as spirits of a different kind flowed through the Criterion and the Windsor, signalling the end of an intense State of Origin for another year.

Check out some photos of our town's most faithful Maroons and Blues supporters:
