Every single Queensland Maroons and Harvey Norman Queensland Maroons player has a story. Every single Maroons player was inspired by someone, looked up to someone as a child.
Every single one of them grew up loving rugby league, watching rugby league, playing at their local club or in the backyard, and idolising those who played.
"Steve Renouf was the reason that I started playing," Willie Tonga said.
Nate Myles used to have supporters posters on his wall of the Maroons.
"There were some that featured the players as big monster-looking builds with these tiny, little waists and they had these huge upper bodies," Myles said.
Harvey Norman Queensland Maroons skipper Ali Brigginshaw used to run around in the backyard of her Ipswich home pretending to be Allan Langer.
"I just liked the way he could step and play with the ball," Brigginshaw said.
Queensland Rugby League is giving eight children aged 12 years and under, and who are registered with a junior rugby league club, the chance to mix and mingle with those they idolise now.
Four children will be picked to attend the Queensland Maroons photoshoot in January, to be photographed with current Maroons stars.
And four will be picked to attend the Harvey Norman Queensland Maroons photoshoot in March.
QRL senior brand and marketing manager Jessica Walker said the intention was to provide young players with "a memorable and rewarding experience".
"QRL has such a wonderful pathway from community to elite, and these photoshoots will bring together participants from both ends," Walker said.
"Our young participants will get to be up close and personal with current legends of the game... players they aspire to be like," Walker said.
"We're excited about it."
