Fullback: Greg Inglis ( Rabbitohs)
Age: 28 Origins: 25
Back to his best in game two. Primed to create more headaches for NSW at fullback filling in for Billy Slater.
Wing: Darius Boyd ( Broncos)
Age: 27 Origins: 22
Has created a wonderful double act with Inglis, the pair crossing for a combined 31 Origin tries.
Centre: Will Chambers ( Storm)
Age: 27 Origins: 3
Had a poor Origin II loss after an impressive game one. Looking to make amends in preferred centre position.
Centre: Justin Hodges ( Broncos)
Age: 33 Origins: 22
Maroons will be hoping to send the wily veteran out a winner in what is expected to be his final Origin game.
Wing: Dane Gagai ( Knights)
Age: 24 Origins: Debut
Hoping to add another chapter to his remarkable comeback tale in series decider.
Five- eighth: Johnathan Thurston ( Cowboys)
Age: 32 Origins: 32
Reunited with Cronk, look for arguably the world’s best player to be even better in Origin III.
Halfback: Cooper Cronk ( Storm)
Age: 31 Origins: 15
Weeks after suffering a knee injury, Cronk is back to add much- needed structure to Queensland’s attack.
Prop: Matt Scott ( Cowboys)
Age: 29 Origins: 18
A late arrival at camp because of a neck complaint, he should again be a major pain in the neck for NSW.
Hooker: Cameron Smith ( Storm)
Age: 32 Origins: 37
The captain’s poise, level head and guidance will be sorely needed in the pressure- cooker atmosphere.
Prop: Nate Myles ( Titans)
Age: 30 Origins: 28
Hard nut ready for another round with NSW’s monster pack. Nothing seems to faze the big man.
Second row: Aidan Guerra ( Roosters)
Age: 27 Origins: 5
Made for Origin. Hit the ground running this series after selectors picked him despite limited preparation.
Second row: Sam Thaiday ( Broncos)
Age: 30 Origins: 23
Always good for a chuckle, the loveable rogue is set to inflict serious pain on an upstart NSW pack.
Lock: Corey Parker ( Broncos)
Age: 33 Origins: 15
Queensland’s Mr Fix- it, who can kick goals and only seems to be getting better with age.
