Rugby-Score@] 2023 State of Origin game 3 Live Coverage ON 12 July 2023
The 2023 State of Origin series finishes up tonight at Homebush, with the NSW Blues looking for a consolation win and the Queensland Maroons eyeing a rare series sweep. If you want to watch the game live there are only a handful of options with the match broadcast exclusively by the Nine Network.
Kick-off between the NSW Blues and Queensland Maroons is scheduled for 8:05pm AEST.
This is The Roar‘s ultimate guide to following Origin 3 online, on TV and on the radio.
How to stream State of Origin Game 3 online
As mentioned above the only way to watch State of Origin in Australia live is through the Nine Network.
You won’t be able to stream the match live on Fox League or Kayo as you are able to for other NRL matches.
Instead, the only way to stream the match online is through 9Now. It’s a free service but you will have to create an account if you don’t have one.
9Now can be accessed on a mobile app through the apple store and google play or you can also access it on most Smart TVs and a standard web browser if you want to stream on a laptop or desktop.
9Now will also have the replay and highlights after the match. Fox League and Kayo will broadcast a replay too but we must stress once again that they won’t have ANY live coverage other than pre-game build-up.
tate of Origin 2023: When, where to watch Game Three
The third clash of the series will take place in Sydney at Accor Stadium — but what time will the game actually begin?
Game III is scheduled to kick off at 8:05pm AEThe Maroons will be out to snare their first 3-0 whitewash since 2010 when they travel to Sydney to take on the Blues at Accor Stadium.
Queensland will start favourites in Sydney against the Blues, and they’ve mostly kept the same side that was successful in Game II.
The exceptions are AJ Brimson starting at fullback for the suspended Reece Walsh and Raiders enforcer Corey Horsburgh coming into the side for the injured Tom Flegler (foot).
How to watch Origin Game 3 on TV
There is only one way to watch the 2023 State of Origin series on TV, and that is through the Nine Network. While Fox Sports broadcast all of the NRL regular season, Nine holds the exclusive rights to Origin and the NRL grand final.
To access Nine’s broadcast in metropolitan areas, you’ll want to head to channel number 9 or 91 on your TV for standard definition, or channel 90 to watch the game in high definition. For Foxtel customers, you’ll have to select channel 209 and if you’re in regional Australia you’ll need to search your TV guide but it’s likely to be on Channel 8 for most of NSW and Queensland areas.
Their broadcast will start at 7pm (AEST), about an hour before the anticipated kick-off. Their broadcast will then lead into the game with pre-match analysis and interviews, as well as the entertainment and national anthem ceremony.
Nine are expected to stay on the air until about 11:00pm (AEST), allowing for a half-hour post-game show, which will include the announcement of the man of the match.
