The rugby league State of Origin will return to Perth next year, with game two to be staged at Optus Stadium in June.

It’s the second time the big event will head west, after more than 55,000 people turned out to watch Queensland take on New South Wales in 2019.

Premier Mark McGowan wouldn’t confirm how much it cost the state government to lure the match to WA, which will likely see three million people watching the game around the country and the world.

I realise there are 3 fullbacks, though you can't leave them out. Centres and interchange.

We seem to pick players out of position - so the best 3 fullbacks might work - wing or centre. Looks like Lomax might be in trouble with his thumb.

I'd go Cleary and Luai too. Hooker and lock are very important - maybe Cook plus 1.

Wow!

Not sure AC is - but anyone who plays in the Melbourne team/system seems to look better.

New State of Origin coach Billy Slater has confirmed Josh Hannay will join the Queensland Maroons as an assistant coach in 2022.

Hannay supported Kevin Walters throughout the 2018 series (pictured above), the same year Slater played his final match for the Maroons.

Now the two proud Queenslanders will reunite in the coaches box, as Slater begins the process of assembling his support staff.
