New South Wales vs Queensland live stream: how to watch the State of Origin Game 2 online from anywhere
It’s a must-win match for the NSW Blues in State of Origin Game 2 tonight. New South Wales suffered a devastating loss at the hands of a resurgent Queensland side a fortnight ago. Game 2 in the 2022 State of Origin series takes place tonight at 7:50pm AEST in Perth, Australia. Here’s how you can watch a New South Wales vs Queensland live stream wherever you are in the world.
Following the 16-10 loss in Game 1, NSW coach Brad Fittler has made some big changes to the Blues. Notably, Damien Cook has been moved to the bench, with Api Koroisau of the Penrith Panthers replacing him as starting hooker. Jake Trbojevic will also be joining the starting squad tonight after missing selection for Game 1.
The NSW squad only lost by a converted try in Game 1, but it appears the combination of Billy Slater as Queensland coach, alongside Cameron Smith and Johnathan Thurston as assistant coaches, has revived the Maroons.
That’s to say nothing of Queensland’s five-eighth Cameron Munster, who’s heroics saw him as a key player in the Maroons’ victory in Game 1. Queensland dominated the ruck with sheer speed and determination in the series opener, and if NSW doesn’t have an answer to this style of play tonight, it’s in for another defeat. Want to see how it unfolds? Here’s how to watch a New South Wales vs Queensland live stream and catch the State of Origin Game 2 no matter where you are.
