After going down to the Queensland Maroons in game one, this sell-out pressure game is shaping as the biggest test for the New South Wales Blues in Origin history – another loss will give Queensland their sixth series win in a row.

To keep the series and the hopes of NSW alive, Ricky Stuart’s embattled Blues must find a way to defeat a superstar-studded Maroons line-up and set up the decider in game three.

Greg Inglis returns to bolster the Maroons while the Blues will be strengthened by the inclusion of Jarryd Hayne. Exciting youngster Will Hopoate faces his baptism of Origin fire for NSW with just 15 NRL games under his belt.

An epic night of Origin begins at 7.00pm on Wednesday, June 15, with The Mighty Blues showing in NSW. Andrew Johns and Brad Fittler, two Blues legends, will present the greatest moments for NSW in Origin history before State of Origin II.

At 7.00pm in Queensland join Fatty Vautin, Wally Lewis and Wendell Sailor for The Mighty Maroons, with insights into the second State of Origin game and plenty of behind the scenes action.

Coverage from ANZ Stadium begins at 7.30pm with revived Australian rock band Jebediah performing their latest single 'She's Like A Comet' in front of the capacity crowd for the pre-match entertainment.

The voice of rugby league, Ray Warren, will lead Nine's Origin commentary team. Joining him for the call are Peter Sterling and Phil Gould, while Paul Vautin, Andrew Johns, Brad Fittler, Wally Lewis and a special guest, Maroons Origin representative David Shillington, are on the expert panel.

Origin III will be played at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Wednesday, July 6, at 7.30pm and broadcast live on Channel Nine.
