How to watch State of Origin 2022 Game 2 live, kick off time
It’s now or never for New South Wales as they face a must-see clash in Game 2 of State of Origin.
Queensland caused a spillover in Game 1 when they outlasted New South Wales to earn a crucial 16-10 opening win at the Accor Stadium. History favors them in Game 2 of State of Origin with 30 of 40 series won by the team that won the opening game.
If they can close the deal here, it would cap a remarkable turnaround for a team that was hammered 76-6 in the first 2 games of last year’s series.
State of Origin Match 2 Kick Off Time
This crucial State of Origin Match 2 takes place in neutral territory at Optus Stadium in Perth with kick-off at 7.50pm AEST on Sunday 26th June.

State of Origin Game 2 Preview
With the series on the line, New South Wales have made some changes to Game 2 of State of Origin, turning to the familiar faces of Jake Trbojevic and Angus Crichton as they attempt to snuff out Queensland’s dominance of the ruck.
Queensland have lost Xavier Coates and Reuben Cotter to injury, replacing them in Game 2 of State of Origin with Murray Taulagi who will make his debut, as well as Jai Arrow of the Bunnies.
These sides have met once before in Perth, in 2019, with New South Wales dominating en route to a 38-6 victory on that occasion.
History favors Queensland here though and they also have the fallback of a potential decider on home soil for Game 3. We believe Queensland will close it out in Game 2 of State of Origin and ride the wave of their excellent first performance.
