Both the NSW Blues and Queensland Maroons had plenty of headaches to sort out. The Maroons are without Jai Arrow who was suspended for COVID breaches while the Blues are missing halfback Nathan Cleary through a shoulder injury.

It’s been confirmed that Jack Wighton will start at five-eighth while Dale Finucane has won a spot in the run-on side for the Blues with Payne Haas to start on the bench.

All eyes will be on Kalyn Ponga at fullback for the Maroons as well as the exciting teenage prospect of Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow.
