The Queensland Rugby League have today named a 19-man squad for their annual fixture against New South Wales.
The squad features four players with NRL experience (AJ Brimson, David Fifita, Harry Grant and Reed Mahoney) and seven returning players from last year’s loss.
Maroons’ legend Justin Hodges will once again coach the side as they look for their first win in the fixture since it began in 2012.
The game will be played as a curtain-raiser to Origin III on July 11 at Suncorp Stadium.
