MAROONS veterans Justin Hodges and Corey Parker believe Kevin Walters is tailor-made to succeed Mal Meninga as Queensland's next State of Origin coach. Parker and Hodges, the newly-retired Broncos skipper, have no doubt Walters could fill the biggest coaching void in Origin history now that Meninga has departed to chase his long-time dream of coaching

ADAM Mogg knows a thing or two about rescue missions. Spool back to 2006 and the Queensland Origin team were forced to embark on a desperate search for backline options after injury wiped out star centre Greg Inglis. In his first series as Maroons coach, Mal Meninga issued an SOS for the uncapped Mogg. The

YES, Mal Meninga would one day like to coach the Kangaroos. But don’t measure him up for a green and gold tracksuit just yet. Meninga, not surprisingly, has been mentioned as one of the favourites to take over from Tim Sheens as Australian Test coach for 2016. But the record-breaking Queensland coach says there is

JT LEADS COWBOYS TO PROMISED LAND

“RUGBY league was the winner”. For so long, it has just been an overworked sporting cliché. But the all-Queensland NRL grand final between the Cowboys and Broncos showed that sometimes clichés, and sporting dreams, can come true. Canberra’s maiden premiership win over Balmain in 1989 has always been held up as the benchmark for grand

A SEASON FOR THE TRUE BELIEVERS

2017-07-19T10:48:19+00:00 September 28th, 2015|All, NRL|

RESPECTED journalist and former coach Roy Masters summed it up in his column in the Sydney Morning Herald: “As the past decade of State of Origin matches has demonstrated, God is a Queenslander”. While those of us north of the border have always known that to be true, this year’s all-Queensland NRL grand final between

FINALS GIVE YOUNG MAROONS AN ORIGIN TRIAL, SAYS MAL

2015-12-07T07:02:29+00:00 August 27th, 2015|Origin|

QUEENSLAND’S next breed of State of Origin stars have the perfect opportunity to show their potential as future Maroons in this year’s NRL finals series, says coach Mal Meninga. This year’s Origin series may be long gone, but that does not mean Big Mal has stopped working for the Maroon cause, as he casts his

RETIRING HODGO ‘ONE OF THE GREATEST’: MAL

2015-12-07T07:03:11+00:00 August 11th, 2015|All, NRL|

MAROONS coach Mal Meninga has hailed Justin Hodges as one of the greatest centres Queensland has produced after the Broncos skipper announced his retirement from rugby league. Two months after helping the Maroons to Origin glory in his interstate swansong, Hodges has decided the 2015 season will be his last as he chases his final
