State of Origin Team List 2022

NSW took the 2021 Ampol State of Origin series 2-1, which included a 50-6 drumming of QLD in Townsville – an outing the Maroons would surely want to forget! There has been a lot of speculation so far in 2022 as to who will be named for the Blues, but it’ll likely include fan-favourites Latrell Mitchell, Cameron Murray and Isaah Yeo. QLD on the other hand, may turn to experience yet again, selecting the likes of Daly Cherry-Evans, Cameron Munster and Josh Papalii. We’ll confirm the players who will line up in Game 1 of State of Origin 2022 once it has been announced.
