Honouring the men who started it all.

“The future of the game is in your hands. We have taken this bold step. If we are beaten, we cannot retreat to any other position. We must win.”

This was the final address from Queensland Rugby League President Ron McAuliffe just minutes before the game that would change Australian sport, Rugby League and the great state of Queensland forever. McAuliffe was not overstating it. After decades of having Queensland’s best players wear sky blue against their own state, the night of July 8, 1980 was the Maroons’ line in the sand. This night was not interstate Rugby League. This was State of Origin.

This framed piece includes genuine signatures by the 1980 Queensland State of Origin Team, including Captain Arthur Beetson and Coach John McDonald, as well as an official 2020 Ampol State Of Origin Queensland Maroons Jersey . This unique piece of memorabilia is the perfect addition to an Office Boardroom or Pool Room or a fantastic donation to a charity of your choice.
