The 2024 State of Origin series is rapidly approaching, and debate is slowly warming up over team selections.

This year's series, which sees the NSW Blues looking to rebound after two straight series losses under new coach Michael Maguire take on a more settled QLD Maroons side, gets underway on June 5 in Sydney, before heading to Melbourne and Brisbane for a potential decider.

With team selection always likely to throw up a curveball, Zero Tackle asked our team - founder Matt Clements, editor Scott Pryde and writers Ethan Lee Chalk, Dan Nichols and Alexander Stuart - to pick both their Queensland and New South Wales teams for Game 1.

Here are the results.
