The Holden State of Origin may be over for 2015 but the interstate rivalry continues this weekend as NSW’s Ron Massey Cup representative side take on the Queensland Rangers in Coffs Harbour on Saturday.
This game isn’t one NSW’s Ron Massey Cup rep players are taking lightly. These men want to win, and representing NSW on such a scale means so much to the players as well as coach Chris Hutchison, who is thrilled to be a part of such a special week and an Origin-like build-up.
Hutchison’s side travels to Coffs Harbour this evening, where they will have one final training session tomorrow before wrapping up preparations ahead of Saturday’s clash at Geoff King Motors Oval.
For most of these players, the Mid-North Coast region is a foreign place, but for hooker Joshua Tangitau, the Coffs Coast has him particularly excited.
