These boys have never seen the Maroons lose a series

WHY are these boys so confident?

Because in their whole lives they have never seen their Mighty Maroons lose a series.

As prime ministers rise and fall and fads come and go, the cockroaches' eight-year losing streak is perhaps one of the most constant factors in the lives of the next generation.

Under 8s Collegians players Toby Usher, Cooper Morton and Jesse Scanlan hope the wins will keep on rolling in for the Queensland side.

"We will win by six in the first game," Jesse predicts while Cooper, not as confident, said the Queensland will win by just one try.

Toby, a fan of Johnathan Thurston, says his boy will be the man of the hour.
