Of course, not everyone can attend a game in person, so the games will also be broadcast and streamed for viewers at home.

On free-to-air television, State of Origin will be available to watch on Channel 9, or on-demand on 9Now. You can also find replays of old matches over on Kayo Sports.

Who are the reigning champs?

If you’re wondering who the winners are to beat this year you’ll want to direct your attention to the Maroon corner. Queensland has won back-to-back for the past two years, with both series seeing the Maroon team winning two out of three games.

Over the 42 series that have been played to date, Queensland has won 24, while NSW has won 16. Two series were drawn. Let’s see if QLD goes on to make it 25 this year.
