It won’t be the veteran’s first experience of representative football, having featured for the Indigenous All-Stars in 2007 and 2013.

Betts will team with his new skipper in Cripps for the first time in a competitive match, with Cripps arriving in November 2013: a month after Betts departed for Adelaide.

With hopefully a licence to thrill on Friday night, there’s every chance there’s be a classic Eddie moment or two when the best of the best collide.

The champion No.19 - whose number in the State of Origin clash is still to be determined - is one of the greatest small forwards of his generation, contributing 600 goals from his 316 games.

Friday’s State of Origin for Bushfire Relief match begins at 7:50pm from Marvel Stadium.
