Going to Origin game? Yes they Willis

WHEN Robyn Willis answered the phone yesterday morning, she thought she was the victim of a prank.

She couldn't believe it when she was told she was the winner of The Morning Bulletin's State of Origin competition.

"I was quite shocked," Robyn said.

Robyn and her husband Colin are the lucky winners of a double pass to tomorrow night's game, Queensland wigs and Maroons' supporter shirts.

Once she got over the shock, it didn't take long for Robyn to plan accommodation in Brisbane.

Life-long supporters of the Broncos and the Maroons, it was Colin who convinced Robyn to enter the competition.

"You don't really expect to win, but I thought I'd have a go," she said.

Robyn said the pair usually went down to watch a Broncos game once or twice a year.

But they haven't been to a State of Origin game since 1991.

Robyn said that was the first game either of them had seen live.

Although the Blues has taken out the shield this year, Robyn can't wait to watch the game.

"I'm just hoping that Queensland can win and that New South Wales don't get a clean sweep," she said.
