So well done to the NSW Blues, a fantastic effort, to chase down that big target. A superb effort from Warner who is the Ryobi Man of the Match - no real shock there. So thanks for being with us, I'll be with you for the Final on Sunday from 10am Sydney time, when Queensland plays NSW in the Final. Bye for now!
