Women’s State of Origin 2024: Confirmed team lists for New South Wales and Queensland in Game 1 | Sporting News Australia

Date:

The women’s instalment of State of Origin will break new ground this year as New South Wales and Queensland do battle in a three-match series for the first time.

“This first three-game series is testament to the quality of the teams and the strength of the rivalry they’ve built together,” the NRL’s EGM Elite Football, Graham Annesley, said ahead of the opener.

“For our fans, the series is a chance to be part of history, get behind the teams and break the women’s Origin crowd record again this year, starting with Game I in Brisbane.”

The Maroons drew first blood last year and even though they lost the second game in Townsville, they lifted the shield as the two-game series was decided on points differential.

The opening match will kick-off on Thursday, May 16 at Suncorp Stadium as the two teams usher in a festival of footy for Magic Round
.

The Blues will then travel back home to host the Maroons in Newcastle in early June, before the third and final match returns to the Sunshine State on June 27.
