State of Origin returns for Game 2 with the NSW Blues hoping to bounce back from a shock defeat at home to the Queensland Maroons. Wanting to catch the game on a live stream or traditional TV broadcast? This is The Roar‘s ultimate guide to following Origin 2 online on TV and on the radio.
As mentioned above the only way to watch State of Origin in Australia live is through the Nine Network. You won’t be able to stream the match live on Fox League or Kayo as you are able to for other NRL matches. Instead the only way to stream the match online is through 9Now. It’s a free service but you will have to create an account if you don’t have one. 9Now will also have the replay and highlights after the match. Fox League and Kayo will broadcast a replay too but we must stress once again that they won’t have ANY live coverage other than pre-game build-up.
How to watch Origin on TV
There is only one way to watch the 2022 State of Origin series on TV and that is through the Nine Network. While Fox Sports broadcast all of the NRL regular season Nine holds the exclusive rights to Origin and the NRL grand final. To access Nine’s broadcast in metropolitan areas you’ll want to head to channel number 9 or 91 on your TV for standard definition or channel 90 to watch the game in high definition. For Foxtel customers you’ll have to select channel 209 and if you’re in regional Australia you’ll need to search your TV guide but it’s likely to be on Channel 8 for most of NSW and Queensland areas.
Their broadcast will start at 7:00pm (AEST) about 50 minutes before the anticipated kick-off. Their broadcast will then lead into the game with pre-match analysis and interviews as well as the entertainment and national anthem ceremony. If you can’t get near a television or want to listen to the game then there are three options to get a radio call of the game. You can listen through either ABC Grandstand Triple M or 2GB. You can find local frequencies on each station’s site. Storm playmaker Jonah Pezet starred with four try assists as NSW dominated Queensland 32-4 in their Under 19s Origin clash at Leichhardt Oval.
Pezet had the ball on a string with both his kicking and passing games to dismantle Queensland in a man-of-the-match display. The Storm have reportedly offered a reduced wage for the Maroons star to remain in Melbourne but now it may seem they have a ready playmaker in waiting. He’s got time looks like he organises the team well some of his kicks were sensational. But his pass when he got in a try-scoring situation he found the right pass which shows he’s not premeditating thinking about who he’s going to pass to before he passes the ball.
He’s watching the defence and reacting to the defence. He sees the game really well. One play left the Immortal halfback in awe. Pezet took the ball on the right side of the field shaping up to grubber before putting in a deft chip to winger Jack Bostock. Looks like he’s going to grubber and out the corner of his eye he watches the winger come in and then he changes the kick and chips over the top Johns said. Have a look at that for touch. That is class. Early in the clash Jacob Mene opened the scoring finishing off a pinpoint grubber from Thomas Duffy to give Queensland the lead.
The Blues hit back through the Canberra connection with centre Brad Morkos setting up Utuloa Asomua with some silky hands for the winger to give NSW the lead. Bulldogs youngster Paul Alamoti strolled through a gaping hole to finish off a perfectly timed pass from Storm player Jonah Pezet. Thomas Weaver made it two goals from two attempts to give NSW a handy 12-4 lead.
