Graham Lowe’s legendary blazer up for bidding on TradeMe

Morning Talk 26/09/2018

It's as Australian as you can possibly get - State of Origin - Aussies taking on Aussies for the ultimate in rugby league bragging rights.

But when the Queensland Maroons won the State Of Origin in 1991, it was the first time a non-Aussie had coached at the rugby league showpiece. That Kiwi coach, by the name of Graham Lowe, remains the only Kiwi coach to have won the series.

It's the equivalent of the All Blacks or Crusaders asking an Aussie to coach them.

Lowe has held on to the maroon blazer he wore that night. Now, 27 years later, he's gifted it to The AM Show to auction for I Have A Dream Foundation.

The TradeMe auction will close on Friday at 8am.

Watch the full interview with Graham Lowe above.
