What time will the State of Origin Game 3 kick off?
8.10 pm – State of Origin Game 3 kick-off
The Ampol State of Origin game 3 will kick off exactly at 8.10 pm on Wednesday the 13th of July 2022. However, the first ball probably would not be kicked until around 8.15 pm, as both teams have to carry out the Acknowledgement of the Country and sing the Australian national anthem.
Where is State of Origin III Being Played?
The State of Origin series was derailed by the continuous COVID-19 lockdown in Greater Sydney, and Game 3 was no exception.
The sudden increase in Covid-19 cases in Sydney forced the game to be moved from Sydney to the Hunter Stadium in New Castle.
The New South Wales government banned spectators because of the fear of a COVID outbreak in the country, and the National Rugby League was not willing to play the marquee game in secret without spectators.
And so, it is set to be played on the Gold Coast at Robina, the Titans’ home field.
Melbourne lost their first game of the season in early June in Game 1 played in Townsville owing to another COVID outbreak.
Sydney had not hosted any Origin game since the 1980 and 1981 events when the series began as stand-alone events in Brisbane.
Because of this, the three 2021 Origin games were scheduled to be held in Queensland.
The State of Origin Game 3 will be played at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Queensland.
