SPORT, 7.30PM, NINE

The cyn­ics said it wouldn’t catch on, but as State of Ori­gin cel­e­brates its 100th game, there’s life in the mates-ver­sus-mates con­cept yet. Ori­gin kicks off this year’s se­ries with a trib­ute to its his­tory since 1980, fea­tur­ing leg­ends in­clud­ing Wally Lewis, Al­fie Langer, Mal Meninga and mark­ing the big mo­ments from the most mem­o­rable matches, broad­cast live from Bris­bane’s Sun­corp Sta­dium ahead of the match. If you’re a New South Welsh­man, you’re do­ing this on hope and mem­ory alone be­cause eight is enough – that’s how many con­sec­u­tive se­ries the Blues have lost to Queens­land.
