Fiery NSW playmaker Josh Reynolds went out of his way to ensure there was no blood between he and Johnathan Thurston, but the Queensland star said it was he who needed to apologise.

Thurston says he regretted his ugly brain snap last night, which saw him go after his opposite number in an embittered post-script to the Maroons State of Origin reign coming to a close.

Blues players were surprised at Thurston's uncharacteristic aggression, with his North Queensland teammate James Tamou claiming he'd never seen his club captain react like that on a football field.

Thurston jammed a forearm into Reynolds face on the ground and then as players from both sides came together, the pair clashed heads and exchanged heated words in an incident that was put on report but cleared by the match review panel.

Reynolds said he respected Thurston as much as anyone in the game.
