November Origin ‘a big advantage’ for Queensland says coach

State of Origin coach Kevin Walters has signed a new deal to stay with the Queensland Maroons for another 12 months.

With Origin rescheduled for the end of the year and featuring back-to-back games, Mr Walters told Mark Levy and Billy Slater he’s had to “change a few things around”.

However, retaining players rather than flying them back to their home clubs in other states is a silver lining he said.

“It’s just a bit different, but I love the fact that it’s going to be in November.

“I think it’s a big advantage from a Queensland point of view.”
