The State of Origin series is the most highly anticipated event in the rugby season, year in, year out. Commonly referred to as Australia's greatest sporting rivalry, the State of Origin pits represenatives of Queensland against representatives of New South Wales. Both teams are made up of players chosen based on where they played their first game of senior rugby league. These players are the best of the best from around the National Rugby League, who then battle it out for the coveted title of State of Origin Champions.
The Queensland team, known as the Maroons, had won the title for 8 consecutive years before 2014, when the New South Wales Blues finally snapped their losing streak and claimed their first title in 9 years. Can they repeat the dose in 2015? Or will the Maroons re-claim the trophy that they believe to be rightfully theirs?
One thing is for sure - you do not want to miss this years instalment of the State of Origin, at ANZ Stadium on May 27. Book your accommodation now, before Sydney sells out!
