    The Queensland Maroons hope the surprises are over ahead of tonight's State of Origin opener against New South Wales in Melbourne

    The Queensland Maroons hope the surprises are over ahead of tonight's State of Origin opener against New South Wales in Melbourne

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    The Maroons have had a disrupted build up to game one with Dane Gagai only cleared to play today after suffering a finger injury at training yesterday.

    It follows Billy Slater being ruled out with a hamstring injury, with Michael Morgan to start at fullback.

    Coach Kevin Walters says he's got a lot of faith in his players.

    He says Morgan has been their Mr Fix-it for several years, he's a really mature player who can handle the expectations that come with playing fullback for the Maroons at the moment.

    Kick off's around 10pm.
