State Of Origin time is here and tbh it feels like Christmas… well, for some of us… other half of us are just ready to DRINK!
2018 is set to be an important year for both sides as they are both looking to claim the series win and bring pride to their home state.
The schedule for 2018 is:
Game 1 – Wednesday 6th June at Melbourne Cricket Ground
Game 2 – Sunday 24th June at ANZ Stadium, Homebush
Game 3 – Wednesday 11th July at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane
The 2018 State of Origin Series will see Melbourne host the first game, before Sydney hosts the 2nd game which falls on a weekend and Queensland hosting the finale.
