Debutant hooker Nathan Peats spoke with of his mammoth effort in his maiden Origin outing, having played 80 minutes in the cauldron that is Suncorp Stadium.

Amassing 53 tackles in a memorable performance, Peats wrapped his first start in the sky blue of his state in style.

"It's a massive feeling right now, it's overwhelming, I'm just so happy," Peats said of the win.

"It was a hard-fought win, we worked hard to get the lead and to hold on to the lead, and I think that the 'one-percenters' that we were doing really well, that's why we finished over the top."
