      Hi Stephen,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Are you looking for the full list of all State of Origin 2017 players? I’m afraid we may not have that information available at the moment. Once we have it, we will definitely feature it on our page.

      So far, the list of players we’ve collated from QLD is listed on this page. You can also check our list of NSW players on our website.

      Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.
