Queensland skipper Cameron Smith spoke with QRL Media following a loss for his team in Origin Game I.
While Smith played his in 40th Origin game last night - he was more disappointed for his team-mate and good friend Cooper Cronk who was featuring in his 20th game and debutants Anthony Milford and Dylan Napa.
He paid credit to the performance of the Blues, but said there was plenty the Maroons could improve on in their next game.
