A State Of Origin game could be on the cards!

The Herald Sun is reporting that the AFL is “considering staging a game of representative football among current AFL stars.”

It’s believed the showcase game, which could happen as early as February, is being touted as part of a number of potential initiatives to help the bushfire relief effort.

The AFL has confirmed the news on Twitter.

“There are a number of ideas and initiatives we are working through with clubs and players across both AFL and AFLW that can support fundraising efforts in the short-term as well as support the ongoing rebuilding of local communities in the longer term,” a league spokesman said.


If it goes ahead, it would be the first State of Origin match since 1999.
