The Blues have dominated the first two Origin games of the year, winning both games and breaking their four-year drought since their last series win.

It’s been a changing of the guard for New South Wales, with 11 debutants picked for Game 1 by new coach Brad Fittler. The squad have come good, with the Maroons unable to find the same quality in replacements for Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk and Johnathan Thurston, who all retired before the start of this year’s series.

With Kalyn Ponga and captain Greg Inglis out of Game 3 with injury, Queensland will be up against it to avoid a whitewash and send stand-in skipper Billy Slater out a winner in his final Origin appearance.

How to watch the match on TV

As has been the case with the first two matches of the State of Origin series, the only way to watch the match will be through the Nine network, who hold exclusive rights.

Their broadcasts can be found on Channel 90 in high definition and 91 and 9 in standard definition. If you’re watching through a Foxtel service, those numbers are 209 and 100 respectively.


The broadcast on the Nine Network will start at 7pm (AEST) before finishing up at around 11pm.

How to live stream the match online

With the change in broadcast agreements this year, the only way to stream the action will be through Nine’s streaming application, 9Now. It comes in the form of both an application and website, with both free to sign up for and use. They will stream exactly the same content as you would see on the TV from 7pm (AEST).

Here at The Roar, we will be live blogging the match to keep you across all the action, as well as providing you with all the best highlights from the final Origin encounter of 2018.
