Corey Norman at 6 and Munster in the centres
 
Would nsw beat the Melbourne storm? Probably not from last nights performance. So pick as many storm players as possible I say
There's another team that tried to play the storm way in origin and just so happened to have the storm's coach and chief architect

They didn't have the foot soldiers though.
 
The courier mail is saying that Munster will be selected at 6 and Morgan at left center
 
I assume we're switching Chambers back to the left if that's the case, because Morgan is really only dangerous on the right side of the field from what I've seen.
 
I'd be worried about Munster making his debut in such a big game. Especially since he hasn't even played a huge amount of footy in the halves at FG level.

I'm happy with that but who is on the bench? And surely Glasby can't get another go, surely?

He is a must in the side, he'll be fine but I do wonder if DCE will be insurance off the bench.

Still talk about Hunt but...Yeh..Nah not happening
As they said on Qld'ers only they should bring back Sam Thaiday just because of his experience with JT and Boyd out
 
Thaiday is lucky to still be in first grade.

I meant in the halves. I agree that he needs to be there, but I would have thought centre would have been better.
 
Ben Hunt will be making his Origin debut off the bench.

Hunt to come on for who? If you are going to go that path, at least pick DCE as he is better overall, more consistent and been there before.
 
State of Origin III: Queensland call up Ben Hunt over Daly Cherry-Evans

BRONCOS halfback Ben Hunt will make a shock Origin debut as Maroons selectors sensationally snubbed in-form Manly playmaker Daly Cherry-Evans for the Suncorp decider.
The Courier-Mail can reveal Queensland coach Kevin Walters will today name two debutants in Hunt and Storm ace Cameron Munster for Origin III, meaning the Maroons have blooded eight rookies this year.
Cherry-Evans was considered a virtual certainty for the decider after his outstanding club form, but once again he has been overlooked _ ringing alarm bells for his Queensland career.
Just a month ago, Hunt suffered the biggest setback of his career after being dumped as Brisbane’s starting halfback and relegated to feeder-club Ipswich in the Intrust Super Cup.

LEADERSHIP: How Morgan became a boss

But Hunt has produced a stunning comeback by emulating Queensland’s greatest halfback Allan Langer, who exactly 30 years ago was plucked from the Ipswich Jets to make his Maroons debut.

Queensland have called up Broncos halfback Ben Hunt for the State of Origin decider.
Maroons hierarchy will today read out the 17-man squad in alphabetical order, but Hunt will be the No.14 utility, with Munster and Michael Morgan pitchforked into the starting side for Origin III.
It is understood Walters has yet to decide on Johnathan Thurston’s replacement at five-eighth, but he is leaning towards Munster in the No.6 jumper, with Morgan likely to start at left centre.
The omission of Cherry-Evans will fuel incessant speculation he is on the nose with Queensland hierarchy, but Maroons selectors no longer regard him as a utility player.
Hunt played a utility role for Australia during the 2014 Four Nations tournament and Maroons powerbrokers believes he is more versatile than Cherry-Evans, whom they view as a specialist playmaker.
Maroons selectors Walters, Gene Miles and Darren Lockyer discussed Cherry-Evans, but believe Munster is a better fit given his club combination with Maroons trio Cameron Smith, Billy Slater and Cooper Cronk.

Daly Cherry-Evans has been snubbed by Queensland despite being in strong form for Manly.
In the wake of Brisbane’s 42-12 loss to the Storm on Friday night, Hunt declared he would not let Queensland down if called-up for the Origin decider on Wednesday week.
“I definitely think I am ready,” said Hunt, who was called into Camp Maroon as a development player for Origin II.
“I played a lot of that utility role in the past (for Brisbane). It’s something that I feel I’d adapt a lot better to now that I’ve played a lot more football. I’ve played in bigger games.
“If I get an opportunity, I’ll do my best and I’ll be ready.”

Well I think that is clear that DCE won't be playing origin ever again, if Hunt is really in, DCE's papers have been clearly stamped.
 
I'm conflicted about what I want to happen. I want Hunt to have a 2nd-half-vs-raiders so we win (if it's not a sure thing by then), but I also want him to have a Storm game to shut the apologists up once and for all. I kinda get the impression he plays better off the bench anyway - he's played there longer than starting half afaik and he made a big difference playing for Australia there.
