JASON Hetherington is in rugby league heaven - assisting in coaching duties for the Maroons squad ahead of tonight's 100th State of Origin game.

Speaking with The Bulletin from the Maroons camp yesterday, Hetherington could give nothing but glowing comments.

"You'd love to coach this side every day of the week," he said.

"But unfortunately it would breach the salary cap."

Hetherington said the majority of this squad had played together for the past nine years.

"They are familiar with their roles. They are familiar with the camp and they understand what Origin is," he said.

"Expectations of the Queensland side are very high.

"Everyone is fit and raring to go."

Hetherington said while the Blues relied on psyching up their supporters with nasty name calling, such as the "two-headed Queenslanders" comment by NSW captain Paul Gallen, Queensland's success could be put down to one thing.

"Everyone (Queensland supporters) is passionate about it," he said.

On the Maroons' winning nine out of nine, Hetherington said: "I hope they win 50. I hope they (NSW) never win another game."
