Airdate: State of Origin III
Game III marks the first time in history every Origin game is played in Queensland.
Nine has only just delivered info on State of Origin III now a matter of hours away at Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast.
This marks the first time in history every Origin game is played in Queensland.
Hosts and commentators are James Bracey, Leila McKinnon, Ray Warren, Cameron Smith, Andrew Johns, Paul Vautin, Phil Gould, Allana Ferguson, Billy Slater, Peter Sterling, Wally Lewis, Paul Gallen, Darren Lockyer, Sam Thaiday, Danika Mason.
Both New South Wales and Queensland have plenty to play for in the high-stakes drama of Game 3 of the Ampol State of Origin series, broadcast exclusively Live on Channel 9 and 9Now from 7.00pm AEST tonight.
Gold Coast’s Cbus Super Stadium is the new site for this unmissable state versus state, mate versus mate spectacle.
A Blues victory means the first series clean sweep for NSW in 21 years, and being one step closer to evening up the ledger against their eternal northern foes.
For the Maroons, they will be doing all they can to prevent a historically one-sided series loss, and to restore pride back into the hallowed Maroon jersey.
The Maroons will field their strongest side in this year’s series, with star fullback Kalyn Ponga returning from injury to spark their attack. He’ll be assisted by young Cowboys speedster Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow who makes his Origin debut in a backline that has been in need of some extra firepower to match NSW’s potent lineup.
The Blues, missing two of their shining lights, Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai, due to injury, have a new halves combination never tested at Origin level: Mitchell Moses in his debut and experienced campaigner Jack Wighton.
With so much on the line in this anticipated showdown, anything could be possible despite the results of the first two clashes.
Comedy duo Roy and HG return with their own brand of hilarious storytelling, tonight ruminating over what the future holds for country rugby league.
A live blog will be available on Wide World of Sports, run by NSW and QLD legends Peter Sterling and Darren Lockyer, offering their thoughts live on every big play and crucial moment.
