Breakout full-back AJ Brimson replaces Kalyn Ponga, Roosters veteran Jake Friend wins the race for the No9 while there are also starts for Tino Fa’asuamaleaui and Coen Hess

Bennett’s Baby Maroons take on a Blues squad that stars Roosters star playmaker Luke Keary, who finally makes his debut alongside outgoing half-back Nathan Cleary, as multiple injuries have forced their way Brad Fittler to mix the game up for back-to-back Blues champion

The squads haven’t been officially announced yet, but were leaked on the QRL and NSWRL sites at the start of the game I’m drawing

James Tedesco was named at the back but faces a fitness test on an injured knee, while Clive Churcill’s medalist Ryan Papenhuyzen missed a bench spot with an injury to the calf suffered during the Melbourne Grand Final

The back injury curse had already claimed Tom Trbojevic for the series, which means a start for Dally M Fullback of the Year Clint Gutherson at center right

Elsewhere, Roosters flyer Daniel Tupou wins his first start on Origin in five years, Eels Wrecking Ball Junior Paulo joins Daniel Saifiti in the front row and Reagan Campbell-Gillard misses the 17th

Despite the regular staples of skipper Daly-Cherry Evans, Cameron Munster, Josh Papalii, Christian Welch, Dane Gagai, Felise Kaufusi and trade players Jai Arrow and Ben Hunt, this is a light team on the experience

New central couple Brenko Lee and Gagai are joined by teenage sensation Brimson, Phillip Sami and Broncos Xavier Coates in an unknown backline; Welch and Papalii Friend bookends in the front row, while Bennett bet on Fa’asuamaleaui to make his No13 debut instead of Arrow

There is also a bench debut for Roosters batsman Lindsay Collins and Rabbitohs second rower Jaydn Su’A
