Origin poster marks moment in history for 100th game
SINCE 1980 when Tommy Raudonikis and Arthur Beetson led their teams on to Lang Park for the first State Of Origin, the memory of each game has been etched into rugby league folk lore.
It's the stuff of history. And now, The Observer is giving you the chance to capture a piece of that history with a commemorative poster of your team to mark Wednesday night's 100th State of Origin match.
Grab your copy of Monday's edition of The Observer for your team poster.
Stick it on your wall, on your front windows, front gate, buy multiple copies and papier mache your front door with them - or take it to the pub or the game itself and show your true colours.
Then, just as you find that pride of place for your poster, we'll get you excited all over again with a special feature in Wednesday's paper - giving you all the stats, the history, the numbers, the odds and the latest news which will help you be in top form for the big game.
Whether you support Mal Meninga's Maroons or Laurie Daley's Blues, grab your copy of Monday's poster and Wednesday's special feature so you can proudly display your allegiances as the next chapter in State Of Origin's epic tale is written.
And of course, with due respect to the Blues, we hope the mighty Maroons can bring it home for season number nine!
