The annual New South Wales Blue vs Queensland Maroon rivalry always serves up interesting moments. Every year both teams and the players compete for the ultimate bragging rights as the premier rugby state in Australia.
At the start of the series, the victories were almost shared equally. Both teams – New South Wales Blue and Queensland Maroon both recorded almost the same number of shields. However, Queensland Maroons surged forward between the years 2006 to 2014 by winning every single series in that time. This helped the state stand out as the premier team in the overall number of victories. As of today, Queensland has won 21 times while New South Wales has won 14 times. On two occasions, the series ended in a draw.
