So the NRL runs out 3-0 winners, with Leeds, Wigan and St Helens all conceding 30-plus points to North Queensland, Brisbane and Sydney Roosters.
However, there's still plenty of rugby league to be played in the northern hemisphere with Super League back on Thursday night. There's much to be proud of and to enjoy about our game.
There's always next year, eh?
For now though, thanks for joining us throughout the World Club Series. Goodbye and good night.
