Publishers Description: Fans of National Rugby League across the nation watched in fascination as Queensland, with it's mix of top players from across NRL, overran NSW for 8 long years of the Origin series--an achievement that will probably never be repeated. Game by game The Streak breaks down the reasons why Queensland dominated for so long. Paul Connolly examines Mal Meninga's coaching contribution and how NSW failed to outgun him. It looks at the line up of top players, that included the cream of rugby league: Billy Slater, Cooper Crank, Greg Inglis, Jonathan Thurston, Steve Price, Steve Thaiday, Israel Falou and all the others. It also picks over the controversies and turning points that made the series so memorable. Queensland dominated for nearly a decade and NSW came agonisingly close many times. But the crown stayed with the Maroons for 8 long years. An in-depth, vividly illustrated exploration of the How and Why behind Queensland's winning streak, The Streak will delight fans of NRL Australia-wide.
