A Girls-Only Guide to State Of Origin Rugby League

Feign an interest in the big State of Origin game two match on Wednesday night with this handy Girls Guide to State of Origin Rugby League! Catch up on who’s who, get into the vibe and read on for a quick heads up on what’s happening, because a lot of us will have to watch this game whether we’re interested or not!

I am of the understanding that the gorgeous men in our lives may find this match not-so-trivial at all, and will perhaps want to view it loudly, with lots of beer and chips, for about three hours. With this in mind, I thought I would try and make it at least bearable for those of us lacking in interest. You will be well rewarded, I promise.

A few points of note:

  • Queensland always win. They will probably win on Wednesday night. If they do win on Wednesday night, they will win the 3-game series because they already won the first match. Queensland have won 9 out of the last 10 series and the only reason they lost that one year is because they felt sorry for New South Wales. So act surprised if New South Wales do win.
  • The match is being held at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. The first match was held in Sydney and the third match will be held back in Sydney in three weeks time. If NSW do spring a win on QLD turf, the third match will be “the decider” and will be BIGGER THAN BEN HUR.
  • The players are selected not for their home state or their birth state, but for the state where they played their first registered game of rugby league. Kind of a tricky little loophole in the system that the team officials like to argue over every now and then.
  • The players of each side are the best in the NRL competition, and Origin is like a beefed up grand final spread out over 6 weeks. This shit’s important, yo. To a lot of people, anyway.
  • Kick off is at 8pm AEST, but coverage will start at 7:30pm and go through until about 10:30pm. It will be on Channel 9.

So now that’s out of the way, let’s have a look at the teams. Losers go first.

Now some of these lads are a bit more out there than others. We have the glamour players and the modest quiet ones here, and the very best images of them that google has to offer.

I did my best.
