The NRL State of Origin is arguably Australia’s biggest sporting rivalry – and with offices in both NSW and QLD, tensions run high mid-year at Indue.
Embracing one of the world’s most watched rugby league games, the 2015 Indue Leadership Forum will kick off with a special State of Origin-themed Welcome Dinner, to be held at The Establishment in Sydney on Wednesday 27 May.
Sponsored by Visa, the Welcome Dinner will see special guests and former State of Origin greats Paul Harragon and Kerrod Walters give their unique insights while commentating the first game of the season which will be shown live on the big screen.
Retired New South Wales forward Paul ‘The Chief’ Harragon OAM has played 20 consecutive State of Origin games for the Blues and was inducted into the New South Wales hall of fame in 2002. He also represented Australia in 17 tests and led the Newcastle Knights to victory in the 1997 grand final.
Six-time Queensland State of Origin player, Kerrod Walters was a hooker in the Brisbane Broncos grand final and world club championship wins in 1992 and in the same year was awarded Broncos’ player of the year. In 2004 he was inducted into the Broncos’ official hall of fame. During the 2007 season at the Broncos’ 20-year anniversary celebration, Walters was listed in the top 20 best Brisbane Broncos players of all time.
