Moving up front, with Tedesco out of the frame Maguire has decided to appoint the reliable Jake Trbojevic as the new Blues captain.

Payne Haas will join him in the front row, with Roosters firebrand Spencer Leniu named to offer plenty of impact off the bench while Mitch Barnett is part of the extended squad.

Elsewhere, in one of Maguire’s other biggest calls, he has left Tigers hooker Apisai Koroisau out with Cowboys rake Reece Robson winning the race for the starting role.

Liam Martin and Angus Crichton start in the second row while Haumole Olakau’atu and Hudson Young score bench roles, with the Manly forward making his Origin debut.

Crichton, meanwhile, has been recognised for his stellar form this season and is expected to make his first appearance in the Origin arena since 2022.

Elsewhere, tireless workhorse Cameron McInnes is set to start at lock in a surprise twist with Isaah Yeo to come off the bench.
