Fans rush for Origin

Fans have rushed tickets for rugby league's second State of Origin game at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium.

Only 3,500 of the 52,500 tickets remain after 14,000 were snapped up in the first 90 minutes this morning. QRL officials held back 500 tickets for north Queensland fans whose lives were disrupted by Cyclone Larry today.

The first game of the series will be played at Sydney's Telstra Stadium on May 24 with the return game in Brisbane on June 14. The third game is booked for Melbourne's Telstra Dome on July 5.
