fight to the end epitomises maroon spirit

TWO desperate and highly-skilled teams going head to head in front of a capacity crowd at Suncorp Stadium – what a captivating finish to the 2017 Holden State of Origin series we have in store tonight. Origin truly is a unique sporting event when you consider the impact it has on communities all over Queensland. I’m continually amazed by stories of people who don’t watch a lot of sport, yet they have a genuine interest in rugby league at State of Origin time. Some fans didn’t give the XXXX Queensland Maroons much hope of keeping the series alive in Sydney following the magnitude of the Game One loss at Suncorp Stadium, but after our courageous win at ANZ Stadium, those same fans are now giving us a chance of winning tonight and taking…

boyd’s blues ready to write history

THE 2017 State of Origin series has been remarkable – and it comes to a thrilling finale in tonight’s decider at Suncorp Stadium. After a dominant victory by Laurie Daley’s NSW VB Blues in Game One, the Queenslanders came back with a mighty resurgence in the second match, and the stage is now set for the thrilling final chapter. This series has had it all – sensational tries, massive hits and tremendous individual performances– and it would take a brave person to predict tonight will be any different. They say nothing hits you like the mate-against-mate, state-againststate battle that is Origin, and more fans than ever are thought to have enjoyed this series than ever before. The Maroons will be desperate to send retiring hero Johnathan Thurston out on a high, but the VB…

getting behind the home ground advantage

AFTER two epic clashes it all comes down to the deciding game in the 2017 Holden State of Origin Series – and what a series it’s been! Watching New South Wales run out 24-point winners at an uncharacteristically silent Suncorp Stadium was a jaw-dropping start to the series. Then to see the Maroons reply in Game Two was another Origin classic. I can’t wait to see what tonight’s finale will bring. Just as unforgettable was seeing under-10s teams from the junior clubs of Cam Smith and David Klemmer – Logan Brothers and the Toongabbie Tigers – represent Queensland and New South Wales in the Holden Junior State of Origin at half-time of Game One. Giving young Australians the chance to live their dreams is a big part of Holden’s series sponsorship and…

cheers to the clubs of queensland

ORIGIN is a special time of year, when Queenslanders unite to loudly cheer on the mighty XXXX Maroons. This year, for such an important occasion, we’ve paid homage to the local clubs across the state for their ongoing support and passion for the game throughout the years. Local footy clubs are where the legends of Origin first learned to kick, pass, tackle and play hard. From the Emu Park Emus to the Noosa Pirates, the team at XXXX thank you and all the rugby league clubs of Queensland for helping shape our champions of the past, today and the future. As a show of thanks, we’ve chosen 12 Queensland clubs and put their name on more than 45 million limited edition cans and bottles of XXXX Gold, XXXX Bitter and XXXX Gold…

time for another chapter of suncorp success

NO other part of Queensland’s 1.7 million square kilometres has hosted more of our sporting triumphs than Suncorp Stadium. Already this month – from an elevated ring in the heart of the Stadium – Brisbane school teacher Jeff Horn defeated Manny Pacquiao to secure the World Boxing Organization Welterweight title. So many champion Queenslanders from soccer, athletics, rugby union, boxing and of course rugby league have done us proud at Suncorp Stadium – or Lang Park, as it has been historically known. Queenslanders can recall the courage of Arthur Beetson, the dominance of ‘King’ Wally, the mastery of Allan Langer, the precision of Darren Lockyer, the leadership of Cameron Smith and the brilliance of Johnathan Thurston. Lang Park has been an unhappy hunting ground for the Blues. After all, it was where Billy Moore made…

dane gagai

WITHOUT doubt, Gagai has been the one Queenslander who embodies the word ‘gamebreaker’ most during this Origin series. Following his dynamic debut for his state in the final game of the 2015 series, Gagai has been a mainstay in the side and it’s easy to see why. He has come of age in the arena in the two games of 2017. He was easily the best player for the Maroons in their first game, running for 220 metres while taking hit-up after hit-up to get his team out of trouble – alongside 11 tackle-breaks. His powerful frame has been a revelation on the wing, as witnessed by his constant threat near the line in Game Two – where he scored two tries – taking his Origin tally to seven tries in six…
