Welcome to Reef Sports Bar & Restaurant” coverage of the 2017 State of Origin series, including news, previews, video, highlights and team announcements. We’ll be updating this page daily as the latest news breaks.
Considered by many as the pinnacle of rugby league, State Of Origin is one of Australia’s premier sporting events, played in front of sold-out stadiums. The series itself is contested between New South Wales and Queensland, who have formed an epic rivalry that has resulted in some of the toughest and most skilful games ever.
History and format
Since its inception in 1980, the results between NSW and QLD have been extraordinarily even, contributing further to the competition’s success. Overall the Maroons have won 23 series compared to the Blues’ 13.
Currently, State of Origin is played over three Wednesday nights, three weeks apart. In 2018 that is set to change, with Game 2 to move to a Sunday night on a standalone representative weekend, changing the long-held Origin tradition of playing on a Wednesday night.
The tournament starts on Monday 3rd July and finishes on Sunday 16th July.
The men’s singles final and the mixed doubles final will held on the final day.
Whereas the ladies’ singles final and both the men’s and ladies’ doubles final are both held on the Saturday 15th.
When is the draw for Wimbledon?
The draw for the first round usually takes place a few days before the start of the tournament.
Depending on who is number one seed, they will be at the opposite end of the draw to the World No.2.
As the tournament gets under way on July 3, the draw will be held around July 1.
