Celebrate victory using new plates

SOUTHERN Downs residents will be able to proudly display their support and boast about Queensland taking out the State of Origin rugby league series eight years in a row with a special number plate.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said to expect Queenslander! - 8 IN A ROW number plates on some Queensland cars by the end of the month.

"We had almost 1000 Queenslanders have their say in our number plate competition and the decision was loud and clear," Mr Emerson said.

"More than 50% want to display Queenslander! - 8 IN A ROW on their cars to celebrate the state's record-breaking eighth State of Origin series win."

The first run of number plates will be available from August 19 at Transport and Main Roads Customer Service Centres.

Interest in purchasing the special State of Origin plates can be expressed on the TMR website from today.
