Queensland selector Billy Slater ‘really excited’ by Origin debutant
The Queensland Maroons have finally named their team for tomorrow night’s State of Origin opener.
Valentine Holmes will play fullback, Kyle Feldt goes onto the wing and AJ Brimson is the utility.
Queensland legend turned selector Billy Slater told Mark Levy he’s “really excited” to see Feldt finally make his State of Origin debut.
“He was really close last year, and he tore his groin so ruled himself out of any calculations of playing in that series.”

Opposing debutant Liam Martin joined Billy and Mark to share how important the opportunity to play for the Blues has been.
“They sort of surprised me [on] Sunday night at our jersey presentation.
“I knew it was a big occasion when mum’s got her makeup done – I think she’s had it once before in my life!”
