How to live stream NSW vs QLD State of Origin online: Decider 2019
On 10 July at ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia, it's NSW vs QLD in the State of Origin decider. This is how you can watch a live stream of rugby league's biggest game of 2019 online.
Update: There has been a late withdrawal from Queensland's State of Origin team for the Game 3 decider. Matt Gillett is out, with Ethan Lowe coming into the side to make his debut. It won't be confirmed until an hour before the game if Lowe will run on for kick-off, or will move to the bench, with David Fifita to come into the run-on side. Dylan Napa has come into camp as 18th man.
It's what everyone wanted to see from the 2019 State of Origin series: a NSW vs QLD decider in Game 3. Well, that's a half-truth. It will be the biggest game of the year and is sure to produce drama and action that will be talked about for generations. However, if you ask fans of NSW or QLD if they would have preferred a decider or to wrap it up in two games, well, you know the answer.
But here we are and anyone could win. QLD were strong in Game 1, winning 18-14 in a game the Maroons should've won by 20. NSW coach Brad Fittler was brutal in his selections for Game 2 as a result, but his team repaid the faith, easily defeating QLD 36-6. The Blues have found form, but QLD are stinging, and pride is sure to motivate a much stronger performance in State of Origin Game 3.

Who will win the State of Origin decider: NSW vs QLD guide
Despite the longer preparation heading into Game 3 over Game 2, neither NSW or QLD could claim to have had smooth sailing. For starters, while a sunny day is expected on 10 July in Homebush, it has been raining all through the lead-up week, hampering training. Then there's been the selection dramas.
QLD haven't had much luck. The NRL's most threatening attacking weapon, Kalyn Ponga, is out injured, forcing Cameron Munster to shift to fullback and rookie Corey Norman to come into the halves. Matt Gillett, the Maroons' most experienced forward, has been unable to train after picking up a groin strain and it's unclear if he'll be right for kick-off (rookie Ethan Lowe is on stand-by).
Coach Kevin Walters also saw fit to axe experienced forwards Dylan Napa and Jarrod Wallace, although bringing on the energy of young rookies Christian Welsh and Joe Ofahengaue doesn't necessarily weaken the team. However, it does make the preparation that little bit trickier.
For NSW, both Nathan Cleary (injury) and Tariq Sims (suspension) have been forced to pull out. But has that been a bad thing? Arguably the game's best prop, David Klemmer, has come in for Sims, while Mitchell Pearce, the competition's most in-form halfback, and a veteran of 18 games for NSW, has stepped in for Nathan Cleary. You could very much argue that NSW are a better side for the changes.
Does this give the Blues the edge in the NSW vs QLD State of Origin decider? When you take those positive changes into account alongside the home ground advantage and the performance in Game 2, you'd have to think that NSW are legitimately the favourites this time out.
