Sports fans are calling for the Women’s State Of Origin series to join the men’s series in having a three-game series, after yesterday’s ‘dumb scenes’ in the match between NSW and Queensland.
Despite NSW winning the game, the team was seen looking sad after final whistle. Whilst they won the match 18-14, they still lost the overall series by the “slimmest” or margins.
ABC broadcaster Quentin Hull said the strange scenes – which included the losers dancing with joy and the winners looking glum – could have been prevented if there was a three match series.
“Watching the losing team in an Origin game celebrate at full time is just a bad look,” Hull said.
A total of 310,000 metro viewers signed up to watch the game on Nine.
Meanwhile, Seven’s The Chase was the most-watched entertainment show of last night with552,000 viewers signing up to watch the quiz show.
Nine’s Hot Seat pulled in 423,000 views and Seven’s AFL had 395,000 views.
Seven won the night with a 32.6 per cent audience share, followed by Nine with 28.9 per cent, Network 10 with 15.3 per cent, the ABC with 15.0 per cent and SBS with 8.1 per cent.
