Queensland name Origin III squad

The Queensland Maroon have named two debutants for State of Origin III with Cameron Munster and Ben Hunt joining the squad.

The decider will be played at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday, 12 July with Maroons Coach Kevin Walters confirming the two new additions at a press conference yesterday.

Experienced duo Johnathan Thurston (shoulder) and Darius Boyd (thumb) have been ruled out through injuries suffered in the Game II victory.

Walters confirmed Hunt will start the game from the bench, with Munster and Michael Morgan expected to fill the vacant centre and five-eighth positions.
