With a title hanging the balance, here’s how to watch State of Origin II for free in Australia

Could it be a home ground victory?

Game two of State of Origin is upon us and will see New South Wales Blues square off against Queensland Maroons at their home ground in Brisbane.

After taking out the victory in the first match with a score of 26 to 18 — as well as last year’s title — the Maroons are the hot favourite to win the second round.

It’s the second of the three-game match, so QLD Maroons will be looking to cinch the victory in front of their home ground in the June 21 game.
