    But will the State of Origin game in Melbourne, be broadcast ‘live’ and ‘Free to Air’ anywhere other than in NSW and QLD?
    Typically, Victoria doesn’t get any live NRL by channel Nine.
    Like previous years, there is no point moving game 1 to the MCG and then not broadcasting live to that state.

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

The National Rugby League returns in early 2018 for its biggest season yet, with the Melbourne Storm, the reigning premiers, looking to continue their winning ways after ending the fairytale run of the underdog North Queensland Cowboys in the 2017 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final.

      When: Wednesday, 6 June
