One off matches[edit]

The matches in 1980 and 1981 were one off experimental matches after New South Wales had already won the interstate series in both years. Both games count toward official statistics, but are not considered series.

After Queensland had won the 1987 State of Origin series 2-1, a further game was played in Long Beach, California to showcase rugby league to the American public. On 15 July 2003 the Australian Rugby League announced that this game was to be classified as an "official match" and that the match would count towards the players' individual statistics and overall match win-loss-draw records. However, the match has not counted towards series win-loss-draw records and the 1987 series still remains a 2-1 win to Queensland.

  1. ^ Since the completion of Stadium Australia, now Telstra Stadium, in 1999, New South Wales has a significantly larger stadium than any in Queensland. This means that a series with two games in New South Wales, or with one at the even larger Melbourne Cricket Ground, has the potential for a larger attendance than any series with two matches in Queensland.
