New South Wales v Queensland

The New South Wales Blues take on the Queensland Maroons at the impressive ANZ Stadium in Sydney in the second match of the 2018 State of origin Series and with the home side potentially picking up just their second series win of the last decade, the great news for fans is that you can watch all of the action live online via our State of Origin live streaming partners.

With an expected crowd of 80,000+ been predominantly behind the Blues, New South Wales will be looking to quickly build on their win in the first match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and if they can play to the same level in this one, Queensland will have to make huge improvements to come away with the win that will keep the series alive and that will give them a chance of winning the series in front of their own fans next time out.

The 2-12 score in the first game actually gives too much credit to the Maroons who looked a shadow of their former selves although there commitment and never say die attitude was never in doubt.

The Blues were stronger down the middle but it was their backs that showed the flair and creativity that has so often been associated with the Maroons and that Queensland will have to find a way to match in this game.

The change to Saturday evening matches in Australia make it easier than ever for fans in the UK to watch the State of Origin match up, so make sure that you miss none of the action by signing up to our State of Origin live streaming partners and remember you can also watch action from every round of the Super League and the NRL.


The Blues won the first match by 22 points to 12 and lead the series 1-0, which means the Maroons simply have to win this game to keep the series going.

Team News

The Blues name a mostly settled team but they are without Reagan Campbell-Gillard due to injury. Matt Prior gets the call ups and a debut.

The Maroons will be glad to see the return of Billy Slater at full back and with Anthony Milford on Samoan duty, Ponga should feature and make his debut.

There are concerns over Dylan Napa with Tim Glasby on standby but their is no place for Michael Morgan who is injured.


As ever this match is a tough one the predict. The shorter than normal turnaround will be a new challenge for both sides but that could play into the hands of the Blues as they have the more settled team although with most of the experience falling in the Maroons camp, that will be a minimal advantage at best.

Oddly, with Queensland going into the game needing the win just to keep the series alive, it is the Blues with the most pressure on them as they are playing in front of their own fans and know that this could be their best, and only , chance of picking up the series win against a Queensland team in flux.

Whilst we wouldn’t be surprised by a Queensland win, it will take a big turnaround from game 1 and with a 90% backing crowd wise for the Blues in Sydney, they should have enough to wrap up a series win.

Score Prediction New South Wales Blues by 8
