New South Wales and Queensland have each named their line-ups and are getting ready to run onto Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville for the opening match of the State of Origin series.

Ben Hunt missed out on being selected for the Maroons’ final squad, but he is Queensland’s 18th man because he was called up to the team on Monday last week.

Earlier, Braith Anasta slammed the claims of former Queensland player Paul Green, who had recently said that the Maroons were inferior to the Blues. According to Anasta, the narrative that Green had created about the Maroons being inferior to the Blues was “piss weak”.

Prior to the match on Wednesday, there was a lot of buildup due to Dane Gagai’s tonsillitis, and G Green making it perfectly clear that his side were long shots to upset NSW.

However, Anasta responded by criticising the “desperation” of Green and Queensland to be seen as outsiders plucky enough to buck the system.

Anasta added, “The main reason I think the response was so strong to Green and Gagai’s absence is that Green is desperate to be the underdog. It’s very obvious that he is desperate.”

Queensland, having two home games, are the definite favourites to take out the cup.” You have Townsville and Suncorp in place for the second game. They prevailed in last year’s series. This is Paul Green’s first appearance in the Origin arena, but all he’s worried about is to see if his side can claim to be the underdogs – concern yourself with the game, mate.
