KEVVIE’S CHOICE REDUCES MAROONS COACH TO TEARS

May 23rd, 2017|

PASSION, pride and loyalty have been the foundation stones that Queensland has built its State of Origin house on since 1980, and Maroons coach Kevin Walters showed that nothing has changed when he named his team for the first game of this year’s series. Walters nearly broke down into tears when trying to explain the

INJURY CRISIS HAS OUR MAROONS ON RED ALERT

May 8th, 2017|

QUEENSLAND’S State of Origin future has become a premature reality after Johnathan Thurston joined fellow greats Matt Scott and Greg Inglis on a worrying Maroons injured list ahead of this year’s series.

DALE STILL DARING TO DREAM OF ORIGIN DEBUT

April 26th, 2017|

THERE was a time, not so long ago, when Dale Copley’s ascension to the Queensland Origin side seemed inevitable. Most members of Queensland’s Emerging Origin squad silently pray they are just one bumper season away from a call-up to the Maroons’ senior team. Copley has been part of the Emerging Origin squad for the past

MACCA READY FOR THE MAROONS CALL

March 31st, 2017|

ANDREW McCullough has waited long enough to play State of Origin, so he can cope with another two years living in the shadow of Maroons skipper Cameron Smith.

BILLY’S RETURN LIFTS MAROONS INJURY GLOOM

March 21st, 2017|

QUEENSLAND skipper Cameron Smith has urged his great mate Billy Slater not to push himself to breaking point in his quest for an Origin recall.

THURSTON APPOINTS HIS MAROONS ORIGIN HEIRS

February 27th, 2017|

MICHAEL Morgan and Ashley Taylor are the future Maroons tipped to take the Origin playmaking baton from champion Queensland halves Johnathan Thurston and Cooper Cronk. That's the view of Thurston himself and Queensland coach Kevin Walters, who admits the time has come for the Maroons to seriously assess their scrumbase options. Since forging their alliance

COOPER READY TO TAKE HIS CHANCE

February 17th, 2017|

GAVIN Cooper has waited too long, and been too patient, to lose it all now. It took 10 years for the Cowboys' no-nonsense back-rower to finally clinch the Queensland Origin jumper that always cruelly seemed just out of reach. But after finally cracking the most dominant team in State of Origin history last season, Cooper

MAROONS HOLD THEIR HEADS HIGH IN DEFEAT

July 14th, 2016|

THE battle for a clean-sweep may have been lost, but Queensland still won the State of Origin series war and a clear moral victory with a lesson in sportsmanship after being handed an 18-14 loss by NSW in Game 3 at ANZ Stadium. Queensland, the series and Origin shield already in their keeping, had been

COWBOY COOPER FINALLY EARNS HIS ORIGIN SPURS

July 4th, 2016|

GAVIN Cooper has earned the ultimate reward for perseverance, winning his first Queensland jersey as part of the Maroons team for State of Origin III on July 13. Cooper, a premiership-winning second-rower with the North Queensland Cowboys, was one of two injury-enforced changes announced by Queensland coach Kevin Walters for Game 3, after the Maroons

MARVELLOUS MAROONS GET THE JOB DONE AGAIN

June 23rd, 2016|

A SERIES whitewash and another slice of State of Origin history beckon for the Maroons after Queensland wrapped up the 2016 series with a 26-16 win over NSW in Game 2 at Suncorp Stadium. Kevin Walters now stands on the cusp of joining Paul Vautin in the rarefied air of finishing their first series as
