Origin coaches united in making series happen

Rival coaches Brad Fittler and Kevin Walters are united in being ready to do whatever is necessary to ensure the 2020 Holden State of Origin series happens.

Fittler is not fussed on when or where the matches will be played while Walters said he was prepared to travel to Sydney for all three games if the Queensland government does not want to host matches due to concerns around the coronavirus pandemic.

"I will just do whatever it takes," Fittler told Wide World of Sports Radio.

"I will play whenever they ask me to play, I'll be as prepared as I can be.

"Whatever we have to do to get the game played and people in blue jerseys and maroon jerseys."

Walters was unsure whether Origin would take place but despite the series schedule originally featuring a game in Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane, he said he would not stand in the way of any attempt to play all three fixtures in the NSW capital.

"I'm like everybody else in Queensland, obviously I'm a huge Origin fan, but we've got to listen to our leaders and certainly at the moment you would suggest that Origin wouldn't be able to be played," he told Fox League.

"We will go anywhere to play Origin, but if we had to travel to Sydney and play three games in Sydney, we're all for that as well.

"The main thing is from my perspective being the Queensland coach, is to get State of Origin back at some stage this season when it's safe and the community is safe to come along and have a look."
