Koroisau to start Origin One

Fiji Bati and New South Wales Blues shot-caller Apisai Koroisau will have a big role to play being the lone hooker named against the Queensland Maroons in the first game of the Ampol State of Origin today.

Queensland Maroons: Reece Walsh, Selwyn Cobbo, Valentine Holmes, Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, Murray Taulagi, Cameron Munster, Daly Cherry-Evans, Thomas Flegler, Ben Hunt, Lindsay Collins, David Fifita, Tom Gilbert, Patrick Garrigan Interchange: Harry Grant, Tino Fa’asuamaleaui, Reuben Cotter, Jai Arrow

NSW Blues: James Tedesco, Brian To’o, Stephen Crichton, Tom Trbojevic, Josh Addo-Carr, Jarome Luai, Nathan Cleary, Tevita Pangai Junior, Apisai Koroisau, Payne Haas, Tyson Frizell, Hudson Young, Isaah Yeo Interchange: Junior Paulo, Camerrom Murray, Liam Martin, Nicholas Hynes
