Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues fans are set to be taken closer to their Origin heroes than ever before, via the newly-launched NSW Blues mobile and tablet app which will also give them first access to coach Brad Fittler’s team selection for Game Two.
The NSWRL will officially announce the NSW State of Origin team for Game Two of the 2019 Holden State of Origin series on Sunday night 16 June via the NSW Blues app first before it is released publicly.
The NSW Blues app is a one-stop destination for exclusive behind-the-scenes content out of the Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues and Harvey Norman NSW Women’s camps, set to provide NSW supporters with unrivalled access to players and coaches.
"We’re taking our Blatchys Blues fans closer to the team in 2019. Our supporters will be the first in the know when we announce the team for Game Two," said Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues coach Brad Fittler.
"We'll give them an exclusive look into the team's preparations in camp leading into the three Origin matches."
Boasting live-streaming capabilities and curated social media feeds, the NSW Blues app also provides the state’s most passionate supporters with special offers and discounts from partners of the NSW Rugby League.
“The NSW Blues app was designed with fans’ experiences front of mind. Not only will the app be home to news and exclusive content, the app will form an integral part of the match-day experience for our Blatchys Blues ticket holders,” said NSWRL Head of Commercial and Digital, Jodie Cross.
"The app is a must-have for all Blues fans."
The NSWRL-owned NSW Blues app enables fans to "wear" the team’s colours through the nib Game Face’s augmented reality, fan-engagement technology – a first in Australian sport.
nib’s Rhod McKensey, Group Executive – Australian Residents Health Insurance, said as a long-term sponsor of the NSW Blues he has seen firsthand the lengths fans go to show their true colours during an Origin Series.
“Origin is Australia’s biggest sports rivalry, and NSW fans are without doubt some of the most passionate in the world. That’s why we want to provide them every chance to put their game face on to back the Blues whether they are at the game or watching from home,” McKensey said
