TV Guide: The Blues aim to avoid a whitewash in State of Origin III on Nine and 9Now

State of Origin III

The coverage begins at 7:00 pm AEST

The series may be won but there are still scores to be settled in State of Origin III on Channel 9 and 9Now on Wednesday, July 12 at 7:00 pm AEST. 

Billy Slater’s Queenslanders are looking for a series whitewash, the first since 2010, in their quest for domination and a place in Origin history as only the fifth Maroons team in 42 years to win a series 3-0. 

The New South Wales Blues have opted for a facelift by naming seven new players as coach Brad Fittler hunts a win to avoid embarrassment on home soil in Sydney. 

Rabbitohs stars Cody Walker, Cameron Murray and Keaon Koloamatangi line up in the starting side led by James Tedesco, while Knights outside back Bradman Best makes his debut after stating his hatred for Queensland in the lead-up to the game. 

Wide World of Sports’ exclusive Origin coverage will be hosted by James Bracey and feature Origin legends Andrew Johns, Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston, Phil Gould, Darren Lockyer, Paul Vautin and Paul Gallen on hand to dissect every moment of the action.

Rounding out the team is Danika Mason, delivering all the breaking news in the lead-up to kick-off, along with Allana Ferguson, and Mathew Thompson in the commentary box, where he will be joined by Andrew Johns and Cameron Smith

9Now will also stream the game live with three additional second-screen streams:

• Player Cam NSW – James Tedesco 
• Player Cam QLD – Daly Cherry-Evans
