Maroons past and present showcase new jersey

FANS got their first look at next year's Maroons playing strip in a video campaign released by the Queensland Rugby League last week.

A host of current and former Queensland players came together on the Gold Coast for the shoot, centring around a game of touch on the beach.

Maroons coach Kevin Walters refereed the beach encounter, as Jonathan Thurston, Sam Thaiday, Corey Oates and Josh McGuire donned the new jersey against Trevor Gillmeister, Brent Tate, Petero Civoniceva and Walters himself.

QRL managing director Robert Moore said the video campaign was a novel touch to showcase the new kit with main sponsor The Star Gold Coast.

"Our digital team has done a great job bringing this concept to life with more than a little help from some of the biggest names in rugby league,” he said.

Star Entertainment Group managing director Geoff Hogg said the company was incredibly proud to continue its support of the Maroons.

"Embracing the spirit of our local community is extremely important to us, and there is nothing more quintessentially Queensland than the passionate state-wide support offered to the Origin team each season,” he said.

The first State of Origin match kicks off in May.
