NSW Blues vs QLD Maroons live stream guide: How to watch State of Origin Game 2
The State of Origin party makes its way to Perth for Game 2 of the series as the New South Wales Blues fight to keep the series alive against the Queensland Maroons. This is your guide to live streaming the match online or watching it on TV.
Kick-off in the contest is scheduled for 7:50pm (AEST), which is 5:50pm (AWST - local time in Perth). The kick-off however is likely to be a few minutes later than advertised, as has become something of a tradition when it comes to State of Origin.
The 8:10pm (AEST) advertised kick-off time for Game 1 actually saw the game get underway four minutes later at 8:14pm (AEST).
The Blues suffered a horror home loss in Game 1 and must win Game 2 in Perth if they are to keep their campaign and chances of going back to back alive, while the Maroons are looking to take back the field before heading home for Game 3 in Brisbane.
