The dust will take some time to settle, after a seismic Grand Final which saw Leeds Rhinos add an eighth Super League title to their trophy cabinet at the expense of Castleford.
Tears will be shed on both sides, for Leeds they will taste of the sweetness of joy - for the Tigers they will flow into bitter puddles.
Departing Rhinos pair Rob Burrow and Danny McGuire both staved off the waterworks as they waved goodbye to Headingley in the semi-finals, but have every right to shed a tear as they waved goodbye in the finest way possible.
It's the end of an era in some respects, with just Jamie Jones-Buchanan now remaining from the Rhinos golden generation.
It's the end of a dramatic season, which Castleford dominated and came so close to capping, before failing to find their form on the big night.
Finally, it's the end of this BBC Sport live text. It's been a ball. See you back here for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup, which kicks off on 27 October.
