Queensland coach Kevin Walters has named a 33-man squad ahead of the 2020 State of Origin series.
Walters has decided to name an extended squad that will all train together instead of naming a traditional Emerging Origin squad.
Ten of the 33-man squad have yet to play Origin footy. Canberra Raiders forward Corey Horsburgh has moved up from the Emerging Origin Program, while former Queensland Under 20 winger Ronaldo Mulitalo has also been given a chance.
The other eight players yet to debut are AJ Brimson, Kurt Capewell, Kyle Feldt, Phillip Sami, Jake Friend, Reed Mahoney, Thomas Flegler, and Jaydn Su’A.
Four players who formed part of the 15-strong 2019 Emerging Origin squad – Joe Ofahengaue, Christian Welch, David Fifita and Corey Norman – all earned a Maroons call-up in this year’s series following camp in January.
The 2020 Maroons squad will get together in Brisbane from February 1-2.
Walters told the Queensland website: “We want the 2020 Origin squad to spend as much time together to build their relationships off the field as well in their specific positions.
“It is also a wonderful opportunity for those who haven’t experienced State of Origin football to mix in and spend time with current team members.
“There has always been a strong bond and mate ship between Queensland players and we will continue to drive that message over the two-day camp.”
