So the 15th Rugby League World Cup finishes with a familiar look, Australia for an 11th time lifting the World Cup after a sterling display in the final against England.
Delight for the Kangaroos on home turf, for their legion of stars including Cameron Smith, Billy Slater and Cooper Cronk.
Heartbreak for England, whose talismanic stand-in skipper Sam Burgess suffers more World Cup disappointment and now the future of head coach Wayne Bennett remains undecided. It could be an interesting time ahead.
It's not just been about the winners and losers of this game, there have been huge strides made across the board.
Who can forget Fiji's hymn singing? Tonga's fan atmosphere and bulldozing football, or Port Moresby experience offered by Papua New Guinea?
It's been a great tournament, at times wonderful even with that late disappointment. Only four years to wait for the next one. Bring it on.
Thanks for joining us over the past month or so, it's been a blast. Only eight weeks til Super League returns... it'll be back before you know it. Goodbye.
