There is no greater rivalry in Australian rugby league than the one between NSW and Queensland.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the treasured grudge match KFC Australia is launching two new Origin Recipe Burgers.

The burger is stacked with two Original Recipe fillets, two layers of cheese, lettuce, cheesy mustard sauce and, to top it off, the burger bun comes in the colour of your favourite State of Origin team.

Locals can choose from the mighty NSW blue or maroon if you happen to be a Queensland supporter.

The limited time only burger will only be available at just six KFC locations in NSW - and luckily for locals, the Campbelltown restaurant is one of them.

KFC's CMO Kristi Woolrych said she was looking forward to seeing punters enjoy this year's trio of games with an Origin Recipe Burger or two.

"We're thrilled to launch the Origin Recipe Burger to celebrate this year's State of Origin series," she said.

"State of Origin is one of the biggest moments on the sporting calendar and it now has its own epic burger to match.

"We all know fans love to don a scarf, a jersey and even paint their face but we felt something was missing - you couldn't eat your support.

"The burgers will be a great way for footy fans to show their true colours throughout the series."

Footy fans will only have from November 3 to November 11 to tuck in to the coloured burgers.

The Origin Recipe Burger can be purchased on its own for $9.95 or if you're feeling extra peckish, you can grab it in a combo for $12.45 with regular chips and a regular Pepsi Max.

It can also be purchased in a boxed meal for $15.45 with a drumstick, regular chips, regular potato and gravy and regular Pepsi Max (please note; prices may vary slightly in some areas).
