Twenty children received a once-in-a-lifetime experience when they took part in the Ampol Little Origin match on Wednesday night.
With the full house at Queensland Country Bank Stadium providing a great atmosphere, the under-10s enjoyed themselves.
Ten players from Weir State School represented the Little Maroons against their Blues counterparts from Belgian Gardens State School.
The selection criteria required teams to be mixed, under 10 and participating in an NRL schools program in NSW or Queensland.
Playing during the break of an Origin match capped a day that also included a skills workshop with Jake Glanville and Alan Tongue.
For the record, NSW scored a 4-2 victory in a spirited contest.
Also included in the Little Origin experience was a jersey presentation from NRL legends and a behind-the-scenes tour of the North Queensland Cowboys' High Performance Centre.
Different schools will represent the Little Maroons and Little Blues at half-time of the second and third men's State of Origin matches as well as the women's State of Origin game at Sunshine Coast Stadium on June 25.
