Live stream State of Origin Game 2 in Australia
NSW need to bounce back against Queensland in Game 2 if they want to keep this year's State of Origin series alive. These are your viewing options.
Queensland brushed off suggestions by some in the media they were the worst line-up in Origin history ahead of Game 1, rallying for an 18-14 win at Adelaide Oval. They can wrap up the series if they can back that up in Sydney for Game 2.
The Blues will be stung by plenty of criticism over their efforts in the opening clash and desperate to bounce back. It sets the stage for a massive game in front of a half-full, 40,000-strong crowd at ANZ Stadium due to the pandemic.

Who will win State of Origin Game 2?
We tipped the Blues, but we did say it was always foolish to write off Queensland in Game 1 and so it proved, with the Maroons staging a trademark rally from a half-time deficit. They know they are 80 minutes from ending a run of consecutive series losses against their old enemy.
We feel the Blues took their foot off the gas in the opening match and believed they had the outcome in the bag. They won't be doing that in Game 2. NSW have an outstanding record at ANZ Stadium and we think they will force a decider.
