Maroons touch down in Sydney ahead of Origin opener

QUEENSLAND will ramp up their State of Origin preparations on Monday after touching down in Sydney overnight.

A recovering Greg Inglis was on board the flight, giving some hope to Maroons fans ahead of Wednesday’s clash.

Inglis is recovering from tonsillitis after three nights in a Gold Coast hospital but has been cleared to play.


Fellow star centre Justin Hodges has also been given the thumbs up after suffering a foot wound.

Inglis has just one training session left with Queensland before they launch their quest for redemption against title holders NSW at ANZ Stadium.
