2019 State of Origin | Wednesday, July 17th

Kick It Touch Origin. Stafford. Taringa. Redcliffe. Toowoomba.
Stafford will host the 2019 Kick It State of Origin on Wednesday, July 17th.

The crown jewel of the Kick It Representative calendar will take place during winter season, one week after game one of the Holden State of Origin at Suncorp.

Hot off an emphatic, hard fought win last year, the Maroons will be looking to extend their winning streak against a hungry Blues side.

Lead by 2018 captain Jess Sleep, the star-studded Queensland side will be looking to press their claims once again for their venue teams.

Duel representative players Corey Pocock, Nick Gilliland, Brayden Barrett, Jayden Turnbull, Ben Burstow and Beau Hess have performed well early on and are a strong chance to retain their spots in their respective the sides.

Blues managers Adam Redmond and David Sercombe have a core group of players that will be looking to end the Maroon’s myriad of magic.


Teams for the 2019 Origin match will be selected by Queensland managers Clint Wicks & Ben Hayes and Blues managers Adam Redmond & David Sercombe throughout the Autumn and Winter seasons at each venue.

Origin sides will be announced on June 1st.

2018 Highlights

Maroons Win 2018 Origin

The Queensland Maroons have secured their third-straight mixed State of Origin win with a hard-fought 9-4 victory over the Blues on Wednesday.

In a match built on sportsmanship and pure skill, it did not disappoint in greasy conditions.

A spirited second half comeback from the Blues highlighted by a length of the field effort from Chloe Storm who pounced on a loose ball to beat three would-be Maroons defenders.

Toowoomba’s own Beau Hess closed the gap to within one just minutes later, jumping on the ball in the in-goal after a nifty short grubber.

The momentum was short lived with a penalty try awarded to Dugongs’ Tim Mitchell, before Michael Bacon followed suit with a neat kick and score.

Player of the match Jayden Turnbull extended the lead to four after splitting from dummy half on Blues’ winger Ben Stevens to send Brayden Barrett over in the corner.

The match was put beyond doubt with Maroons captain Jess Sleep crossing for two points courtesy of a stylish in-and-away from Michael Bacon to draw the edge defence.

Beau Hess crossed for a late consolation try.

The mixed Origin match was billed as a fast-paced showdown between two hungry sides and in the opening minutes it lived up to expectation.

Some rock solid defence and quick rucking saw a stalemate over the opening quarter.

The deadlock was broken with a sharp grubber to Tim Mitchell. Just three minutes later, Troopers’ Michael Bacon jumped on a fortunate ricochet to extend the lead to 2-0.

In wet conditions, Joeys’ own Jayden Turnbull scooped up a long-range kick to slide over the line.

The Maroons would coast into the halftime break 4-0 following a pin-point kick from Spartans’ Ben Burstow.
