Proving the series’ continued pulling power, some 2.49 million viewers tuned in across the five metro cities according to overnight OzTam audience numbers.

One million Sydneysiders tuned in for last night’s game won by Queensland 22-6. In Brisbane 867,000 tuned in and an impressive 378,000 Melburnians treated themselves to the annual biff-a-thon decider.

Last night’s TV audience made it the most watched Origin game in history, beating 2016’s first match that pulled 2.71 million viewers.

It was also the second most watched show of 2017, with the Aussie Men’s Tennis final on Seven still holding the title with 2.67 million viewers.
