This evening is footy’s night of nights – State of Origin – where Queensland and New South Wales go head to head to find out when is the greatest team of them all: the Maroons or the Blues.
It’s a riveting game, if you love footy, but if you’re not too keen on watching it, then never fear – we have you covered.
