The Greatest Upset


1995 was the height of the Super League war.

As a tactic to fight back against News Limited, the ARL ‘overlooked’ players who’d committed to the breakaway competition from representative selection.

And so it was, Queensland entered camp with an unrecognisable squad and a rookie coach, Paul Vautin.

They couldn’t beat a New South Wales team still bursting with international talent. Could they?

In this episode of Stories of Origin we examine how Paul Vautin’s team of no-name Maroons did the impossible.
