Free State Of Origin 2017 NSW Blues vs Queensland Maroons Live Streaming Rugby League Game 1,2,3 match will be kick off, Australia, Start 31 May 2017 online, (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Nine, Fox Sports, FOX Sports 2 & FOX Soccer Plus,Premier Sports.
It’s Christmas, Easter, and every other holiday rolled into a 42-day period where three games steal the focus and divide NRL supporters into two groups.
Whether you bleed maroon or bleed blue, there’s no game quite like State of Origin.
And with the 2017 series kicking off on Wednesday, May 31, you may be asking some questions … who’s playing? What does it all mean? And where can I watch it?
Hayne was on Monday night named at left centre for NSW and will make his comeback in the Origin arena on May 31 at Suncorp Stadium — his first appearance for NSW since 2014.
“Why on earth wouldn’t NSW pick the most dynamic player in the game? James Roberts!,” Mundine posted to his Facebook page.
“They pick jarrod (sic) Hayne in centres ? I’m a fan of jarrods & he does perform in the big games but he ain’t no centre & he ain’t been playing like jimmy the jet… unbelievable! Fair dinkem.”
NSW State of Origin great Mark Geyer on Monday also said he would have liked to see Roberts make his State of Origin debut this year.
Roberts is stuck down the pecking order. The competition to play in the centres for NSW includes Hayne, Josh Dugan, Jack Bird, Dylan Walker, Joey Leilua, Michael Jennings and Josh Morris.
Hayne said on Tuesday he will have a license to roam in next week’s State of Origin opener as NSW coach Laurie Daley maximises the returning star’s attacking threat.
The hero of the Blues’ 2014 series win as fullback, Hayne has been named at centre in his first series since, marking just the second time he will fill the role in his 20-game Origin career.
