There's ONE SLEEP TO GO until we kick off another huge State of Origin series! 

This is one series that Greg Inglis will no doubt cherish for a long time to come, as he runs on as captain for Queensland. 

The 31-year-old has told nrl.com that the moment he got the call from Kevvie he was right here in Townsville- on Maggie Island to be specific! 

On the weekend that his club- the South Sydney Rabbitohs- were taking on the Cowboys, he received the memorable call. 

"When I got the phone call from Kevvie (Walters) I was up at the Cowboys. It was a massive honour," Inglis said to nrl.com

"My two best mates from high school were up there so we went and spent the day together on Maggie (Magnetic) Island. It was just a great day, a great memory to have and great people to share it with."

How cool is that?! 

We're sure the memory will be enough to inspire GI to lead the boys to a WIN!
