State of Origin is the pinnacle event on the Rugby League calendar, the three match series, the greatest interstate rivalry, state against state, mate against mate.
The Former Origin Greats (FOGS) will host their renowned Annual Charity Lunch on Tuesday June 21, 2016 at Suncorp Stadium. As always, the lunch will be the exclusive pre-match event to Game Two of the 2016 State of Origin Series.
As we enter the next decade, the lunch provides us with the opportunity to reflect on the past ten years and the dominance the Queensland team held in the State of Origin arena. The Queensland team cemented their place in history, winning nine out of the ten series played between 2006 and 2015, it is quite possible this incredible feat will never be repeated again.
Individual records also tumbled, Cameron Smith equalled Darren Lockyer’s record of 36 Origin appearances in which he is set to eclipse in 2016, Greg Inglis became the highest try scorer in Origin history and Johnathan Thurston made his 33rd consecutive Origin appearance and reached the illustrious record of 200 Origin points in which he will once again build upon in 2016.
Join us, as we reflect on the past decade and embark on a new chapter in State of Origin history under new Queensland Maroons coach Kevin Walters.
The lunch again promises to be an entertaining afternoon hosted by Gary Belcher FOG #47 with special guest comedian again in 2016, with his brand new show, Darren Carr.
