State of Origin 2017: The day before

The NSW squad opened the doors ever so briefly at Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast. Our cameras were there.

In case you’ve been under a rock or somewhere other than NSW and Queensland … here’s more State of Origin.

Johnathan Thurston out of opener: JT’s remarkable 36-game State of Origin streak is over with Queensland's talisman succumbing to a troublesome shoulder injury.

NSW Blues: It’s a case of Nathan Peats, Jake Trbojevic in and Penrith playmaker Peter Wallace out.

Queensland Maroons: Darius Boyd has won the battle for the Maroons fullback spot with returning superstar Billy Slater missing selection completely.

The winners, the losers
