      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 are listed above, whilst from NSW are on this page.
