The Queensland women's rugby league team will seek to extend one of Australian sport's longest unbeaten streaks when they host NSW on the Gold Coast next month.

The QRL on Friday unveiled the team they hoped would extend the Maroons women's incredible 17-year unbeaten run in the Interstate Challenge.

Queensland will take on NSW on July 23 at Cbus Super Stadium as the curtain raiser to the Gold Coast Titans' NRL Round 20 clash with Parramatta.
