Queensland and New South Wales have named their squads for the 2021 State of Origin Game 2 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Sunday, June 27.

New South Wales recorded a dominant 50-6 victory in Game 1 in Townsville and can regain the Origin shield with victory in Brisbane.

Here is how the two sides will line up:

Queensland Maroons Game 2 Team News


Under the pump, the Maroons are taking a gamble on 18-year-old New Zealand Warriors full-back Reece Walsh in a number of changes from Game 1.

Walsh has been handed a call-up by coach Paul Green and he will become the youngest Origin debutant since 1995.

North Queensland Cowboys front rower Francis Molo will also make his Origin debut after being named on the Queensland bench. 

Andrew McCullough, Josh Papalii, who was suspended for the series opener, and Ben Hunt have all been named to add experience to the Queensland side. 

Harry Grant (hamstring) and fullback AJ Brimson (knee) are both unavailable, while Xavier Coates, Joe Ofahengaue and Jaydn Su’A have been left out from the squad that played in the first game.
