QUEENSLAND FAREWELL TO A MAROONS LEGEND IT is my pleasure to welcome you to Suncorp Stadium for the final match of the 2018 Holden State of Origin series. Once again, we have been treated to some brilliant rugby league from two immensely talented and dedicated teams. Tonight will provide another fabulous showcase of our game and some of the greatest players of this generation. For Queensland fans, it will be a night to remember as we say farewell to Billy Slater, who makes his 31st and final appearance for his beloved Maroons. Billy epitomises the Queensland ‘way’, having risen from humble beginnings in Far North Queensland to the top echelon of the game in a decorated representative career. Fittingly, his long-time club and representative team-mate, former Queensland captain Cameron Smith, will join us here at Suncorp Stadium…

farewelling maroon greats of the past and present

TONIGHT at Suncorp Stadium, a special pre-match tribute will be held for Queensland’s past and present State of Origin captains. Cameron Smith, who recently retired from representative football, will be farewelled, as well as Billy Slater, who’ll captain Queensland tonight for the first time in his final State of Origin match. Former captains including Wally Lewis, Mal Meninga, Allan Langer and Darren Lockyer will also feature in the tribute. Smith and Slater have been two of Queensland’s greatest players. They’ve played 42 and 30 Origin games respectively and have been an integral part of the state’s unprecedented success over the past decade. The fitting tribute will give not just Queenslanders but all fans of rugby league a chance to farewell two Origin legends. Gold Coast singer Amy Shark, who will release her debut record next…

cameron munster

THE Storm five-eighth is one of the form players of the competition and has the ability to create magic when absolutely nothing is happening. The 23-year-old is still young, but in the context of his footballing career, Munster has plenty of big game experience under his belt. He’s played two Tests for Australia and now three State of Origin games, as well as winning the premiership with Melbourne in 2017. At 185cms, he’s tall but still has fantastic balance, and despite weighing 89kgs, he’s deceptively strong. What makes Munster so dangerous is his combination of strength, footwork and unwavering confidence in the face of adversity – but his versatility doesn’t hurt either. He’s capable of playing in the halves, at fullback, and has even played one game in the centres…

ACROSS the first two games of the State of Origin series, the Rabbitohs rake has made 95 tackles. Incredibly, it hasn’t hampered his ability to run. Cook’s speed and vision are the two biggest reasons he was selected to replace Nathan Peats in the No.9 jersey this year, and his consistency in both areas have made him one of the form players of the competition. He’s so effective; his energy in defence is just a bonus. After beating out Robbie Farah for the starting hooker position at South Sydney this season, the 27-year-old has grown in confidence, finally landing his State of Origin debut and looking right at home on the big stage. In Game One he threatened the Maroons’ defensive line repeatedly, setting up a line-break for James Maloney…

new kid no   more

RANKING players has become one of the most tiresome processes in rugby league, but when someone like Darren Lockyer speaks, you listen. The Broncos legend was recently included in the 10-man shortlist as the NRL prepares to name two more Immortals and is widely regarded as one of the best players of the modern era. Having worn the No.1 jersey for half of his career, Lockyer knows the intricacies of fullback play inside out, and while some will say he’s the best custodian of the past 20 years, he has no doubt that Billy Slater has him covered. With 12 tries from 30 appearances, Slater has been a key cog in the Queensland juggernaut that has dominated the interstate arena – but the Storm superstar will run out for the Maroons for the…

living on   the edge

One of the fastest wingers in the game has already won a premiership and an Origin series, but with his family in mind, Josh Addo-Carr isn’t lacking the motivation to go above and beyond. THE full-time siren has just sounded and the Blues have won their first series in four years after claiming Origin II. The crowd is going wild in celebration as the players rejoice on the field. Some players are embracing, others doing a lap of honour and a few consoling with the opposition. Meanwhile, Josh Addo-Carr is no longer on the field. He hasn’t gone up the tunnel. He hasn’t gone for an interview. Wearing a Blatchy’s Blues wig, he’s jumped the fence to race 20 rows up into the crowd. “I saw my family so I thought I’d head…
