Last Sunday, I had the amazing opportunity to head into Maroons camp, and be involved in an opposed session with the QLD team. 

I kind of had to pinch myself! 

Here I was with my teammates from Souths Logan Magpies, playing footy with the likes of Johnathan Thurston, Billy Slater, Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk…

Not to mention all of the other incredible athletes who make up this unbelievable footy team!

It’s a day I’ll remember for the rest of my life, and one I’m incredibly grateful for.

And while it was a heap of fun, I also learnt some lessons as to why QLD have been so dominant in the State of Origin arena over the past decade.

There’s one key aspect of their preparation that I believe will help ANYONE in their own training.
