Great chance to pick greatest Origin team

GREATS Wally Lewis and Benny Elias have agreed to renew their rivalry - by selecting their greatest State of Origin sides.

But there's a catch: they'll name teams from opposing states, with Lewis naming his best NSW Origin side and Elias selecting his all-time best Queensland team.

The Origin Greats countdown will start online tomorrow.

Each day (except Sundays) leading up to Origin I on May 27, we'll focus on one position - starting with the fullbacks - list the selection options and spark debate on who Lewis and Elias might pick. You will be able vote on your favourite option on our website each day for each position.

The public poll results and the picks of Lewis and Elias will run in print and online on game day, May 27.
