The series decider kicks off on Wednesday evening at Suncorp Stadium and what a match it will be. The Queenslanders dug deep in the last meeting to edge out a heavily criticised NSW side by 2 points. The Blues have no changes after the loss and have kept the same side as the first 2 matches. Queensland was forced to replace Darius Boyd and Jonathon Thurston and we’ll see young Melbourne half Cameron Munster in the No. 6 on debut for the Maroons. Michael Morgan move from the bench to replace Boyd in the Centres and Ben Hunt is set to make his debut off the bench for the Queenslanders.
