What about the actual game? I saw lots of Aussie fans calling for Cleary's head after Game 1 ("I never rated him, he went missing", etc etc), but you could hardly criticise him after Game 2. He hardly put a foot wrong, but, to be fair, he was helped by a much stronger team performance all round than Game 1. It's a relatively poor QLD side,and when Munster went off early, I think their chances went with him. Ben Hunt is not going to win you origin.
Cleary is a great player.
Thought a big difference in game 2 over game 1, was that QLD played some dumb tactics. When defending, they were continually getting outsmarted and as you say, Munster going off fininshed them off altogether in attack.
