Airdate: State of Origin 2024

It's New South Wales vs Queensland in Sydney this week.

State of Origin I, New South Wales vs Queensland, takes place this Wednesday.

Nine will mount more than 60 broadcast cameras, requiring over 140 broadcast crew, for the game at Accor Stadium, Sydney.

Monday’s 100% Footy is also an Origin Special, 7.30pm live on 9Now with Phil Gould, Paul Gallen, Danny Weidler and host James Bracey.

The Queensland Maroons, unbeaten with coach Billy Slater at the helm, this year face a reshaped NSW Blues side under debut Origin coach Michael Maguire, entering the three-game series with a fresh approach.

Maguire has made some big selection decisions, appointing a new captain in Jake Trbojevic, bringing six debutants into an overhauled lineup that includes Panthers triple-premiership winning fullback Dylan Edwards, and entrusting Dally Medal winner Nicho Hynes with the crucial halfback position.

Queensland’s men in Maroon will roll with a familiar, star-studded backline that boasts the brilliance of Reece Walsh, captain Daly Cherry-Evans, Xavier Coates and Hamiso Tabui-Fidow, mixed with Australian international forwards Pat Carrigan, Reuben Cotter and Lindsay Collins

The Wide World of Sports exclusive Origin coverage will be hosted by James Bracey and feature the biggest names in modern rugby league history, with Origin legends Andrew Johns, Cameron Smith, Brad Fittler, Johnathan Thurston, Phil Gould, Darren Lockyer, Paul Vautin, Paul Gallen and Allana Ferguson on hand to dissect the on-field action.

PLUS, in a special guest commentary appearance, injured Queensland playmaker Cameron Munster will join Nine’s exclusive State of Origin coverage, for pre-match, half time and post game expert comments.

On the sideline, Danika Mason is joined by Fittler and Lockyer, with Emma Lawrence outside the venue to soak up the pre-match atmosphere at Accor Stadium.

In commentary for Origin I is Mathew Thompson, who will be joined by two of the greatest NSW and Queensland representatives ever, Andrew Johns and Cameron Smith.

      1. Thats correct Sunny. Live coverage is only on the 9 network. As soon as the live game finishes, can you then watch a replay of the whole game on Foxtel/Kayo.

  1. As I looked at the Start times on different stadium website, I noticed that the MCG start time is 8pm, though the NRL website is 805pm kickoff time. On most cases, Nine advertised time is 8:10pm, though they would kick off a few minutes later than scheduled. This is showing lots of smugness and arrogance from the Nine Network! Previously when Origin previously played at Perth Stadium, they kick off just before 6pm (WA Time).
    Does anyone know why Channel 9 wanted to start the game at a later time? It is just confusing to see different advertised starting times
