Where can I watch the State of Origin next wednesday?

Hi,

I will be in Pulau Penang next week and was hoping someone could tell me which bar/pub would be playing the State of Origin Rugby league match? I know it might be a stretch but surely there are other NRL fans in Penang.

Thanks!

Hi Shmall, I was there for SOO last year and watched the first one at Anthony's Bar at Batu Ferringhi and the 2nd one at Bayview Beach Resort where I was staying they showed it on a big screen in the Celcius Bar.

If you are staying in Georgetown, I did notice a pub on Upper Penang Rd across the road from the Soho Pub, that was advertising SOO.

Best of luck and go Queensland.

Hi there, just seeing how everyone went last year watching SoO in Penang? I am staying at the Copthorne in Georgetown and want to find a place to watch game 1 tomorrow night.

Actually Rugby has been played throughout Malaysia since 1890 and there are several teams in Penang so there is an awareness of State of Origin with several bars in Penang and many in KL showing the games.
