The Queensland Rugby League has today confirmed the Queensland Maroons squad for Game III of the State of Origin series against the New South Wales Blues.
With experienced second rower Felise Kaufusi unavailable for the series decider due to family reasons, Maroons selectors have called in North Queensland Cowboys forward Tom Gilbert.
Gilbert has been named on the interchange bench, with fellow Cowboy Jeremiah Nanai promoted to the starting side in Kaufusi’s absence.
Maroons selectors have also added Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow (North Queensland Cowboys) and Sam Walker (Sydney Roosters) to the squad.
