New South Wales and Queensland have just begun the annual State of Origin rugby series, which sees the two Australian states go head to head in a best-of-three competition.

This year the series has a hype video that will get you excited for the games no matter what your interest level is in rugby, thanks to some help from Dwyane (The Rock) Johnson.

The first match of the series took place on Wednesday with Queensland winning a tight 11-10 contest at ANZ Stadium in New South Wales. The next installment will take place on June 17 at Melbourne Cricket Grounds.
