The State of Origin is big for our friends in NSW and Queensland – but here in Victoria, it’s understandable we don’t know much about the game… right? 

Following an invitation to watch Wednesday’s game together, a Horsham woman quickly told her NSW friend he would need to give her a crash course on how the game worked. 

“Who’s playing?” she innocently asked. 

First lesson learned – it’s NSW and Queensland.
