It was a State of Origin series win to remember for NSW and Blues players have a coffee table book to make sure they never forget it.
They were handed a 144-page book at Monday night's Brad Fittler Medal to document their journey from a batch of rookies to series champions.
With coach Fittler telling the team not to bother buying into any media hype because they'd get a chance to read it back later, staff collected articles from newspapers about the series from the first day of camp to Game III.
Every day of camp is documented chronologically in the display book, which also includes galleries of team training and inspirational quotes from Fittler.
"I never looked into much media and read too many articles about it," Blues player of the series James Tedesco said.
"So to look back and see us at training and winning the series, it's something I will cherish for the rest of my life."
Printed with each player's NSW number and given only to them and football staff members, the book is the last of Fittler's initiatives for 2018.
Blues players were rushed back into their NRL teams after the series victory in July but the books gave them and staff the chance to reflect on the six weeks on Monday night.
"Honestly, it was such a privilege to be involved in this Origin series," adviser Greg Alexander told guests at Monday's awards night.
"Looking at the photos in the books, two things stick out to me: the last 15 minutes in Origin II where we won the series and the first half in Origin III where it was a rugby league miracle we were in front at halftime.
"I'd forgotten what it was like to commit yourself to something as emotionally and physically as our players did."
