Queensland Wins Rugby League State Of Origin Series 2017

Rugby League State Of Origin Series History Since 1980

Victor P Taffa

Rugby League State of Origin Series 2017 between New South Wales and Queensland went down to a third deciding match for claiming rights in the 3 match series.

Both New South Wales and Queensland have won 1 match each in 2017.

However it was Queensland with the pride of their maroon jumper that saw them win the third and deciding match to take out the 2017 series 2-1 over New South Wales.

The State of Origin Series is an annual best of three rugby league series between New South Wales and Queensland.

Senator for Queensland Ron McAuliffe OBE was instrumental in engineering the State of Origin concept as he was sick and tired of seeing New South Wales walk all over Queensland.

However the tables have turned and it is Queensland pride in their maroon jumper that now sees them dominate State of Origin series matches.

Prior to 1980 New South Wales vs. Queensland matches were not of a State of Origin nature with New South Wales dominating team selections and victories.

State of Origin began in 1980 with only 1 match played and only 1 match played in 1981.
