State of Origin: state against state, mate against mate. Over a history spanning four decades, Origin football has presented us with some of the greatest moments in Australian sport. Now, step back in time to relive twenty of the greatest ever victories by the Queensland Maroons, presented in their entire original broadcast format.
Who could forget the first ever State of Origin game at Lang Park in 1980, when inspirational Maroons skipper Artie Beetson set the tone for what to come with a hit on his good mate Mick Cronin? Or when King Wally was infamously sin-binned at The Cauldron in 1988, to which the Queensland crowd responded with a barrage of beer cans? Relive the fighting spirit of coach Paul Vautin's rookie Maroons outfit in 1995 as they registered a remarkable series whitewash against a Blues side brimming with superstars. Experience the unforgettable moment that started a Maroons dynasty as captain Darren Lockyer pounced on wayward pass to wrap up the series in 2006, through to Cooper Cronk's sublime field goal to notch an unprecedented seventh-straight series win in 2012. All these memories and more are here, in twenty of the finest ever performances from the Queensland Maroons.
