Squads named for State of Origin decider

New South Wales and Queensland have both confirmed their squads for Wednesday’s State of Origin Game III decider at Suncorp Stadium (KO 9:10am UK time).

With the Maroons winning Game I and the Blues coming back to win Game II, the series rests on Wednesday’s final game.


Corey Allan and Harry Grant are set to make their Origin debuts after replacing Ohillip Sami and Ben Hunt respectively. Cameron Munster is named to start despite going off after just two minutes in Game II with a head knock. The only other change sees Christian Welch return, shunting Dunamis Lui onto the bench and Moeaki Fotuaika to the reserves.

Squad: 5 Corey Allan, 1 Valentine Holmes, 4 Dane Gagai, 21 Brenko Lee, 19 Edrick Lee, 6 Cameron Munster, 7 Daly Cherry-Evans (c), 8 Christian Welch, 9 Jake Friend, 10 Josh Papalii, 11 Felise Kaufusi, 3 Kurt Capewell, 13 Tino Fa’asuamaleaui, 12 Jaydn Su’A, 14 Harry Grant, 15 Lindsay Collins, 16 Jai Arrow, 17 Dunamis Lui, 18 Ben Hunt.

The Blues name the same 17 from Game II, with Josh Addo-Carr retaining his spot on the wing despite a foot problem. Storm fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen is named as 18th man, so is a slight chance of making his Origin debut.

Squad: 1 James Tedesco (c), 2 Daniel Tupou, 3 Clint Gutherson, 4 Jack Wighton, 5 Josh Addo-Carr, 6 Cody Walker, 7 Nathan Cleary, 8 Daniel Saifiti, 9 Damien Cook, 10 Payne Haas, 11 Angus Crichton, 12 Tyson Frizell, 13 Jake Trbojevic, 14 Dale Finucane, 15 Junior Paulo, 16 Nathan Brown, 17 Isaah Yeo, 18 Ryan Papenhuyzen, 20 Cameron McInnes.
