Matt Elliott looks at where State of Origin II was won and lost.

Queensland wrapped up the Holden State of Origin series with a win at Suncorp Stadium last week and NRL.com expert Matt Elliott dissects the difference between the two sides that led to the Maroons' victory.

Elliott believes there was very little separating the two sides but a lack of urgency in key moments ultimately cost the Blues a chance to level the series.

In this week’s NRL Breakdown, Elliott shows examples of how NSW players were half a step behind where they needed to be and how a little more effort could have resulted in a greatly different result.

He also shows the brilliance of Queensland and how their key playmakers created tries out of nothing to clinch the series winner.
