Pick up your souvenir State of Origin poster

IT'S shaping up as one of the most exciting State of Origin deciders in years - and we are going to celebrate it accordingly!

On Tuesday, July 7 we're publishing a souvenir illustrated poster drawn by one of Australia's best-known cartoonists - Gary Clark, of Swamp fame.

The poster is jam-packed with famous Origin faces and moments that involve some of rugby league's favourite players and characters from the past three decades, including Trevor Gillmeister, Tommy Raudonikis and Sam Thaiday.

There's even a challenge to you - to pick current coaches and Origin legends Mal Meninga and Laurie Daley out of the crowded, humorous illustration, and to find as many other famous footy moments as you can.  

To find out more about Mr Clark and this one-off collectible illustration, read our profile on him in Saturday's Weekend magazine.

And don't forget about our final bumper preview on Wednesday [July 8], taking in the latest developments, crucial aspects of the finale, and the colourful recollections of three of the game's greatest names - Wayne Bennett, Darren Lockyer and Steve Mortimer.
