The chance to live a dream

This year, Holden is giving two truly worthy Junior Rugby league teams the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of an ultimate State of Origin experience. Introducing the Dungog Warriors, and Clermont Bears Under 9's Junior Rugby League teams.

Their journey starts here. Watch below the special moment when the 2016 Junior State of Origin teams were announced.

Be inspired by the stories of Charlotte Baker, leading the Dungog Warriors U9's to represent the Blues from Dungog, NSW and fullback Roman Revel-Blair from Clermont, QLD leading the Clermont Bears U9's, to represent the Maroons.

Week 1

The journey to game day

The teams are selected and the countdown is on. Our Junior Maroons have travelled from Clermont in Queensland while the Blues have left Dungog to gather at ANZ Stadium. For some it's their first trip to Sydney, but for everyone it's the start of an experience they'll never forget.

Watch as we follow them in the lead up to the match. Participating in special training with Origin greats Mick Crocker and Matt Cooper, and receiving their very own personalised guernseys for the game - they arrived as opposing teams but look set to leave as friends who know that anything is possible.

Week 1

The big game

The hours upon hours of training and preparation has all been leading to this. It's game day for the Junior Maroons from Clermont in Queensland and the Junior Blues from Dungog, New South Wales - there's no denying the anticipation.

Watch as they take the field at the legendary ANZ Stadium and go head-to-head in the inaugural Holden Junior State of Origin. Dressed in their personalised guernseys, the excitement, comradery and power of possibilities is truly inspiring.
