There are few events in the sporting calendar that draw out rivalry between New South Welshmen and Queenslanders quite like the State of Origin. In the 36th year of this annual series, Game III will be no exception – predicted to be the biggest and most watched game in rugby league history.

On July 12, supporters will be filing into Suncorp Stadium and many more tuning in on NRL Official App to cheer on their team in last game of the State of Origin series. Many supporters will be decked head to toe in maroon or blue accessories… others will be ready to test their lung capacity. To test the true passion of football fans or to help the undecided to choose a team, we’ve launched the first ever ‘Fans of Origin’ quiz bot.

Through a simple Facebook messenger integration, the friendly quiz bot will ask fans a series of questions to work out where their allegiance truly lies. Once all questions have been answered by the fan, the quiz bot will determine the result and award the fan either a Blues or Marroon supporter badge that they can proudly share with their friends on Facebook. Come kick off, there will be no doubt in anyone’s mind who they’re backing!

How to use the bot:

To test your State of Origin team allegiance:

  1. Go to the Telstra ‘Fans of Origin’ page
  2. Click ‘send a message’ and the messenger bot will activate!

For fans not at the stadium and looking to catch the game, Telstra’s Live Pass will bring the action live, fast and data-free to Telstra customers via the NRL Official App (iOS and Android). The updated NRL Official App integrates bunker decisions, improved player stats, and, there are distinct club-specific extensions. Telstra has improved the app including a faster 3 step sign-up process for customers redeeming the Telstra Live Pass offer which is included in all Telstra mobile plans and selected recharges.
