Corey Norman has been named to back up from his State of Origin debut for Queensland at five-eighth. Jai Field has been omitted from the squad.
Tariq Sims's return from suspension has caused a reshuffle in the forward pack which has led to his brother Korbin being named on the bench and fellow front-rower Mitchell Allgood left out of the squad.
Match: Dragons v Raiders
Round 17 -
Venue: WIN Stadium, Wollongong
Tyson Frizell, Paul Vaughan (both New South Wales) and Ben Hunt have been named in the reserves in hope they'll make it through Origin III unscathed, while James Graham (broken leg) is another who could potentially play.
