Queensland Maroons coach Kevin Walters has named an 18-man squad for the opening match of the 2017 Holden State of Origin series.

Johnathan Thurston has been named in jersey 18 as he attempts to overcome a shoulder injury, with Queensland debutant Anthony Milford named at five-eighth in the starting side.

Roosters prop Dylan Napa has also been named for his first State of Origin appearance, earning a call-up to the starting forward pack that includes Nate Myles, Josh Papalii, Matt Gillett and Josh McGuire.

RLPA General President Cam Smith will once again captain the side for the May 31 match at Suncorp Stadium.
