NSWRL welcomes move for historic Women's Origin series

NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden today welcomed the historic move to hold the 2023 Ampol Women’s State of Origin for the first time as a two-game series with matches to be played in Sydney and Townsville.

The Harvey Norman NSW Sky Blues will aim to defend their 2022 title with Game One on Thursday 1 June at CommBank Stadium in Parramatta, and Game Two on Thursday 22 June at Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville.

“There is a real appetite for women’s Rugby League and State of Origin being the largest rivalry in Australian sport only underlines its popularity,” Trodden said.

“I support the decision to move to a two-game series as the women’s game is rising in popularity every year, with more than 20,000 female participants signing up to play the greatest game of all for the past three years.”

From the previous five Origin games, the Sky Blues hold a 3-2 advantage with wins in 2018, 2019, and 2022.

Harvey Norman NSW Sky Blue coach Kylie Hilder will name her squad next month following the completion of the annual Country v City representative weekend.

Club and state members can already purchase tickets, with General Public tickets to go on sale at 11am tomorrow (Thursday, April 27) via

Seats are available from just $20 for adults and $40 for families, while juniors under 15 can enter free with a paying adult.
