Fans of Origin – A Tribute to the Loose Units

To celebrate a full-house of 52,000 fans at Suncorp Stadium for Game III of State of Origin tonight, we’re paying tribute to the fans.

It’s fair to say that Origin brings out the absolute loosest of units and any event that makes fully grown adults carry on like pork chops gets a tick of approval in our books.

We’ve gone into the archives to celebrate the best fans that Origin has to offer from the past 40 years.
