State of Origin Game History - Head to Head

State Of Origin is a game played between the two main Rugby League playing states in Australia - Queensland and New South Wales. It started in 1980 as a trial and took off from there. The State Of Origin concept is that you are eligible to play for a state/region is this is where you played your first senior rugby league. Previously, it was the location/state where you were currently playing. This caused many one sided affairs as most Queenslanders played in the elite NSW competition. Since that time State Of Origin has generated some of the best games of rugby league in Australia.
