State Of Origin Game Two- LIVE This Sunday From Perth
After Queensland edged out New South Wales in Game I in Brisbane, the greatest sporting rivalry in Australia rolls on with Game II of the 2019 Holden State of Origin series this Sunday.
For the first time in its history, a State of Origin game will be played in Perth, with an expected sell-out crowd at the state-of-the-art Optus Stadium as the NSW Blues fight to save the series against the Queensland Maroons.
Maroons coach Kevin Walters has made only two changes to his side, with forwards Tim Glasby and Jarrod Wallace slotting in as injury replacements for Joe Ofahengaue and Jai Arrow.
In contrast, NSW coach Brad Fittler has made seven changes to the team beaten 18-14 in Game I. Blake Ferguson, James Maloney, Tom Trbojevic, Dale Finucane, Wade Graham, Tariq Sims and Daniel Saifiti join the Blues, while young Roosters star Latrell Mitchell has been controversially dropped.
Ray Warren will call the epic encounter, along with Paul Vautin, Andrew Johns, Phil Gould, Johnathan Thurston, Billy Slater, Paul Gallen, Darren Lockyer, Peter Sterling, Sam Thaiday and Wally Lewis commentating and analysing the action.
Viewers will continue to have unprecedented access to the game, with four supplementary streams available on 9Now in addition to the game itself. These include Spidercam, NSW coaches box, QLD coaches box, and the innovative Referee Cam, allowing fans to see and hear everything referee Ashley Klein does on the field.
Ahead of Origin Game II, the best female rugby league players from NSW and Queensland do battle in the Holden Women’s State of Origin match, LIVE on Friday evening from North Sydney Oval.
In the inaugural Women’s Origin match last year NSW superstar Isabelle Kelly scored a late try to give the Blues a hard-fought 16-10 victory over the Maroons. Queensland will be out for revenge under captain Ali Brigginshaw, while Kezie Apps takes over as the Blues captain from Maddie Studdon.
