COREY Oates is State of Origin’s hard-luck kid after being squeezed out of a Queensland team looking for redemption in Game II in Sydney.

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

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. Thurston, who overcame a calf tear to play in Australia’s 30-12 Anzac Test thumping of New Zealand, suffered a suspected tear in his

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

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. Since bursting onto the scene as an 18-year-old at the Broncos in 2008, the good judges have been whispering about McCullough. Next big thing. Future Origin hooker.

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.

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

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
