The New South Wales rugby league team has represented the Australian state of New South Wales in rugby league football since the sport's beginnings there in 1907. Also known as the Blues due to their sky blue jerseys, the team competes in the annual State of Origin series against neighbouring team, the Queensland rugby league team. The Blues are captained by Paul Gallen and coached by Ricky Stuart.
Previously the New South Wales team, in addition to playing annually against Queensland, played matches against foreign touring sides and toured overseas themselves. They have played all their home matches at Stadium Australia, New South Wales' largest stadium, since it was built in 1999.
