BILLY MOORE: Billy's passion for his state will go down in Origin folklore when he famously rallied his side with a chilling cry of "Queenslander!" as the Maroons came onto the field after half-time in Origin 1, 1995.
The Maroons where the biggest underdogs in state of origin history but would go on to win the game and whitwash the series.
The uncompromising back-rower would play 17 times for Queensland and earned three caps for Australia in a career that spanned from 1989 to 1999.
JEFF THOMSON: Those who saw Jeff bowl or faced him say that he is the fastest bowler in the history of test cricket. Thomson was clocked at over 160k/ph in a fast bowling comp during the 1970's. Many critics of the game including Rod Marsh and Richie Benaud say that "Thommo" bowled much quicker than that but was not recorded for speed.
He took 200 wickets for Australia in 51 Test matches.
