How to watch 2021 State of Origin live stream in Ireland
It's the greatest spectacle and fiercest rivalry in rugby league and fear not, you can watch State of Origin live overseas.
State of Origin is among the most skilful and brutal spectacles in professional sports. The 2021 series is looming as an intriguing rugby league battle between an embarrassed NSW outfit and a surprising champion Queensland line-up. The Maroons were extreme outsiders last year, but showed that Origin is won with spirit and toughness rather than talent on paper.
