State of Origin Game 2 June 17th: Return to Melbourne
State of Origin Game Two, possibly the decider in the best-of-three competition, has been scheduled to take place in Victoria for the first time in 18 years. It’s not only the inhabitants of New South Wales and Queensland who want to see rugby league’s most fierce matchup; in 2015, the Melbourne Cricket Ground is getting a slice of the action. The date is set for the 17th of June, and the battle will commence at 8pm. Tickets are available from Ticketek.
The challenge has been laid
Queensland Maroons have the advantage going into game two after a harrowing 11-10 win at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium. “Dad’s Army,” (with an average age of 29) still has it, it would seem - but can the younger, less experienced Blues team come back to wear down the older Maroons and standout Cooper Cronk with their endurance?
With such a close score in their first meeting, the second is set to be a thriller. It is made even more exciting thanks to its return to Melbourne, where Origin will be available to a new audience of fans. This game could be the one that decides the whole shebang - all in all, an unmissable event for State of Origin followers.
