40 rich years of State of Origin rugby league - reflecting the triumphs, pain, controversies and incidents that have shaped rugby league's greatest spectacle.

State of Origin: 40 Years 1980-2019 is a fascinating celebration of rugby league and the legendary State of Origin series - one of the most widely-followed sporting events since it was established in 1980. Every game of each series is explored in detail, with a blow-by-blow account of key incidents. These colourful field reports illuminate how the games ebbed and flowed and how fine the line is between success and failure.
