Panthers forward Kurt Capewell has been named in the QLD Maroons squad to contest the State of Origin opener against NSW on Wednesday 9 June.
Capewell's selection means a total of seven Panthers players will appear in Origin I, after Nathan Cleary, Isaah Yeo, Jarome Luai, Brian To'o, Liam Martin and Apisai Koroisau were earlier named in the NSW Blues squad.
Maroons head coach Paul Green has named a 20-man squad, with the group to assemble in Brisbane today to begin preparations for the Origin opener.
