STATE of Origin is the pinnacle of sporting prowess for rugby league fans, and for television presenter Yvonne Sampson it still brings a tear to her eye.

Millions of people watched last year and, centre stage, was Yvonne Sampson - a rising star in sports broadcasting.

In the March 4 edition of Weekend, country kid Sampson talks about her love of football and her family, and her adoption.

Weekend also examines the pressure on professional athletes as they transition from their sporting careers to retirement.
