Injury update: Xavier Coates

Queensland Maroons coach Wayne Bennett has confirmed young winger Xavier Coates has been ruled out of tomorrow night’s State of Origin decider. 

Coates, who has scored a try in each of the first two games, was unable to complete today’s captain’s run on the Gold Coast due to a groin injury. 

Edrick Lee trained on the wing and will make his Origin debut in front of a sea of maroon at Suncorp Stadium.

The Maroons announced their 21-man squad last Friday, with Bennett to trim the line-up back to 19 tonight. 

The final 17 will be revealed one hour before kick-off.
