The major event on the NRL Calendar kicks off this Wednesday in 3D for those with the technology. This series is far and away the most hotly anticipated clash of the season and some extra impetus this year has been added by a desperate NSW Cockroach team hell-bent on preventing the QLD Maroons from claiming a record equalling fifth consecutive series win.
A number of newsXpress stores in the Northern states create great theatre in-store to capitalise on rabid interest from patriotic fans. newsXpress Sarina have built a multi-location display in their newsagency, highlighted by the QLD Shrine featured in the photo to the left. Merchandise and supporter gear have been coupled with the newsXpress posters to create a magnificent homage to the game.
