It's the Maroons' coaching trinity that's looking to deliver Queensland the Holy Grail. And they've all got links to the Canberra Raiders.
You can't find much bigger names in Queensland State of Origin than Maroons coach Wayne Bennett and assistant Mal Meninga.
While Bennett's other assistant Neil Henry's also been part of Queensland's most dominant Origin era.
Now, they're just 80 minutes away from leading what sections of the Sydney Cockroaches' media have labelled as the worst Maroons team in history to a series win.
A win over the NSW Blues at Lang Park on Wednesday will end a two-year losing streak for the Maroons.
And also ensure Queensland have only lost two deciders on home soil - in 1994 and 2005.
They couldn't have any better credentialed coaches at the wheel.
Meninga led the Maroons to eight straight series wins and when you combine his and Bennett's records in charge of the Cane Toads they boast 14 series victories from 17 attempts.
Both also have links to the Green Machine, with Meninga playing in all three of the club's premierships, as well as coaching the Raiders for five years.
Bennett spent one season as Canberra co-coach, alongside Don Furner snr, with the pair guiding the Raiders to their first ever grand final.
Henry spent two years in charge of the Green Machine before heading north to lead the North Queensland Cowboys.
He said they all had a strong Origin connection.
"When Wayne had the job Gene Miles rang me, 'Would you be interested in Origin?' I live on the coast anyway," Henry said.
"There was some talk of Mal doing the job as well and I'd worked with Mal before in 2006-2009.
"And then he rang me up and said, 'I'm on board too'. It ended up being all three of us.
"I've never worked with Wayne before so it's been fantastic.
"It's a strong Canberra connection, but there's a strong Origin connection between those two guys ... it's a good mix."

Queensland will need all that coaching nous to turn things around following a 34-10 thumping in Sydney last week.
But Henry was confident they had the ability to do exactly that.
"NSW came out really motivated. It was do-or-die for them, same as both teams this week," he said.
"We knew we had to be better than we were in [game one] in Adelaide and we weren't really up to the mark - too many errors, we didn't have field position and they ran a bit harder and were hungrier.
"We need to address that. Playing at Suncorp is a plus for us, but we've still got to improve in some key areas.
"I'm sure we've got the ability to turn that around, but we'll have to be a fair bit better than we were."
A key part of that will lie with another Raider. Josh Papalii.
The Canberra prop was unhappy with his performance in game two and has vowed to be better in the decider.
His Raiders teammate and Blues centre Jack Wighton's expecting him and his fellow Queenslanders to "grow another leg" on home soil.
Henry said that Papalii's influence went beyond the playing field on Wednesday night though, with the 28-year-old also proving influential with the young forwards in the Maroons' Origin camp.
"He's massive. He's a real leader for the boys. Experienced Origin campaigner off the back of an outstanding year for the Raiders," Henry said.
"He's had a couple of years of footy where he just seems to get better and better.
"He's great for the young forwards that have come in - young Tino and Pat Carrigan and those guys and even Dunamis. Josh is a strong part of our leadership group."
