“Blues versus Maroons” refers to the annual State of Origin rugby league series played between New South Wales and Queensland, two of the states in Australia. The State of Origin series is considered to be one of the most intense and passionate sporting rivalries in Australia.
The series began in 1980, and since then, the two teams have played each other in a best-of-three series each year. New South Wales is represented by the Blues and Queensland by the Maroons. The series is played in June and July, although this year the first game will be played on May 31, and each team plays one home game and one away game, with the third match being played at a neutral venue.
The rivalry between the two teams is intense, with players and fans alike taking great pride in representing their state. The matches are known for their physicality and toughness, and often feature a high level of skill and intensity. The series is watched by millions of rugby league fans across Australia including Papua New Guinea.
