  1. I didn’t head to the stadium as I was at home but I watched game via 9now on Fetch. Last night’s Origin was the final Origin match to be played on a Sunday before reverting it back to a Wednesday night. (I don’t know why they play game 2 on a Sunday night since they announce the deal back in Nov 2015). I wanted to see the game back on a Wednesday night, however I would like to start the game earlier. An 810pm start is too late. Think about other fans especially young kids. Kids need to head off to school the following day. They should start at an earlier time of 7:50pm. That way it can help young children get refreshed and head off to school. But Game 3 falls during school holidays in most states.
    Anyway, the next match is a decider & this will boost ratings. But I still think we might see 2 million metro viewers. I predict that this will be an extremely close match 3 at Suncorp Stadium. Go BLues!

  2. It was a pretty ordinary night if you didn’t watch footy. I’m not a league fan so i decided to watch some catch up tv cos there really was nothing on. Nine should win the week too but stranger things have happened 😂 Seven do have 3 nights of AFL and that has helped them in the past too. Guess we will see.
