Kicking off from 7pm on 22 July, rodeo lovers can get a taste of some of the best cowboys from across the country without having to the travel far. 

Since its first round in 2019, the PBR Origin quickly became a hit for cowboys and cowgirls alike, bringing state rivalry to a whole new level. 

PBR Australia general manager Glen Young said that like the NRL State of Origin, the PBR Origin has generated incredible support.

“I was there for the first round in 2019 in Sydney and we knew from then we had a pretty damn good product in terms of the Queensland versus  New South Wales rivalry,” he said. 

“When Queensland won, it generated an amazing atmosphere – it was Origin. I have been doing this for 20 odd years and it is one of the best events I have ever seen.

“The lead was changing throughout the whole competition, and it came down to the last bull for Queensland to take the win.

“It’s great to see the fans, they all have so much fun.”

Queensland has taken out round one and two so far this year with hopes for another win in round three.
