(log onto to QRL.com.au at 9am to see the official team first)


The Maroons will fulfil media commitments in Rockhampton that morning before heading to XXXX Island for an overnight stay.


The Maroons are looking forward to stepping on to the island and integrating with guests of major partner XXXX, who are wonderful supporters of rugby league across all levels of the game.


The trip will also give the players and staff a brief opportunity to take time out and relax before the pressure-cooker Origin decider on Wednesday week, with a few games of beach cricket and touch footy or even a spot of fishing the perfect tonic.


On Wednesday afternoon, the squad will then return to the familiar surroundings of Camp Maroon on the Sunshine Coast.


Training sessions are pencilled in for Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at their Coolum base.


The Sunday morning run will be an opposed field session against Paul Greens Queensland Residents team.


Later that Sunday, the team will board a flight to Sydney. Monday will be a day for the players to freshen up before they have their final hit out at ANZ Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.


There will be no public appearances or Fan Days before Game 3.
