Beyond celebrates 100 games of State of Origin

Beyond Home Entertainment will commemorate the historic 100th game of the Holden State of Origin series in 2014 with the release of two specially-commissioned DVD collections celebrating Australia’s greatest sporting rivalry. The State of Origin Ultimate Collection: Platinum Edition, a limited release 66-disc collection featuring every Origin game played from 1980 to 2013, will be released on 14 May 2014, while State of Origin: 100 Memorable Moments, a feature-length special showcasing the greatest moments in Origin history, will be available on 18 June 2014.

Regarded by many commentators as the highest level of representative Rugby League, State of Origin has provided Australian sporting folklore with some of its most iconic moments. From Arthur Beetson leading his underdog Maroons side onto Lang Park in the first ever Origin game and the subsequent bruising contests of the 1980s, to the Blues’ domination of the 1990s and Queensland’s unprecedented eight straight series wins in recent years, State of Origin is rightly lauded as a showpiece event on the national sporting calendar.

The State of Origin Ultimate Collection: Platinum Edition presents all 99 Origin games since 1980, retrieved and restored from the Rugby League archives. Presented in a premium limited release hardcover collector’s book, the collection also features a stunning pictorial retrospective of Origin’s most iconic images and a history of the famous contest including series statistics and records.

State of Origin: 100 Memorable Moments is a stunning showcase of the greatest highlights from 34 years of Origin contests, highlighting the most iconic moments in Origin’s fabled history, as chosen by a panel of respected Rugby League experts. Specially-commissioned to coincide with State of Origin’s 100th Game celebrations in 2014, 100 Memorable Moments will provide a nostalgic take on the tries, tackles, triumphs and tragedies that together have shaped State of Origin into Rugby League’s greatest spectacle.
