ORIGIN III | Queensland Playing Positions

Queensland coach Kevin Walters has confirmed the Maroons starting line-up for Game III this morning ahead of the team’s first field session on the Gold Coast.

Cameron Munster will play his first Origin match at five-eighth, with Michael Morgan switching from his customary Origin utility role to the centres.   

Morgan’s move to the starting side paves the way for Ben Hunt to make his first Origin appearance in the No.14 jersey.

The Queensland Maroons have also confirmed Melbourne Storm’s Felise Kaufusi as the 18th man for the July 12 match at Suncorp Stadium.

Broncos hooker Andrew McCullough and Gold Coast Titans halfback Ashley Taylor will arrive in Camp Maroon today to train with the team.
