State of Origin 2018 begins on June 6

Queensland will look to continue their extraordinary dominance over New South Wales when the two bitter rivals clash in the 2018 State of Origin series, taking place in June and July.

Queensland's Maroons continued their dominance in 2017 when coming from 1-0 down to retain the Origin shield with a 2-1 victory.

That means that the New South Wales Blues have won just one series since 2006, that coming in 2014. They have also lost the last three series, all by the same 2-1 scoreline.

Neither side will have an advantage of playing at home twice in 2018 with the opening game being played on neutral ground at the MCG in Melbourne on June 6. 

Game 2 will be played at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on a Sunday on June 24 when New South Wales will have home advantage.

The potential Origin decider will be staged at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on July 11 when Queensland hosts Game 3.

Although Queensland are currently in the middle of unprecedented Origin dominance, there’s only been one series 3-0 whitewash during the last 12 years - in 2010 - with Queensland’s previous 3-0 series win coming back in 1995.
