Tonight’s meeting between the Queensland Maroons and New South Wales Blues wraps up the 2018 series. Kick-off bingo has become a favourite game in the lead-up to kick-off and you can tell us when the game will start below.
The game is advertised to kick-off at 8pm (AEST), but as we know all too well, the chances of that actually happen are as slim as Parramatta’s finals hopes this season.
The Queensland faithful will farewell several influential captains of it’s past, in an event that is sure to drag on the wait until the official kick-off time.
Queensland sensation Amy Shark also performs in the lead-up to Game 3, with her hit singles ‘I Said Hi’ and ‘Weekends’ set to feature.
Both teams are set to enter the stadium at 7:55pm (AEST), before the national anthem is performed. Kick-off will follow shortly after that. That’s if things went to the advertised schedule. So, not going to happen.
So far this year, both games have failed to begin at the advertised time.
Game 1 kicked off 14 minutes late while the second instalment of this year’s series was 12 minutes behind schedule. We could even say they are slowly improving, but then, Game 2 is hard to get a read on given it was on a Sunday rather than the usual Wednesday.
Will they finally get it right this time? Most likely not. Let us know on the form below what time you think kick-off will be and we will have the answer at 7:50pm. That’s the advertised time anyway!

It was the one State of Origin award Billy Slater couldn’t win. Sydney Roosters fullback James Tedesco was crowned NSW’s best player from their 2018 series victory on Monday night, earning his maiden Brad Fittler Medal. Controversially overlooked by Kangaroos selectors for the Wally Lewis player of the series, Tedesco was the Blues’ best in […]
It’s been a week since Game 3 of Origin and with pretty much any discussion on the game revolving around post-match drama I figured I’d take the opportunity to remind everyone that a game did in fact take place prior to the awards ceremony.
Since 2004, the Wally Lewis Medal has been one of the most prestigious awards in rugby league, given to the best player at the end of the State of Origin series. Handing that accolade to a player who only played two of the three games has devalued it forever.
