Billy Slater will debut another Cowboy as the Queensland coach confirmed his expanded squad for the Origin decider.
With Felise Kaufusi banned from game three for personal reasons, Slater has promoted Jeremiah Nanai to the run-on side and appointed Nanai’s Cowboys teammate Tom Gilbert to the bench to make his Origin debut.
Meanwhile, veterans Josh Papalii and Dane Gagai have been spared the ax after speculation they would be dropped before game three and cockerel Sam Walker has been added to the reserves.
On the other side of the border, New South Wales coach Brad Fittler will also debut a striker and make a big appeal to Jack Wighton.
