Capewell named in Maroons squad

Panthers forward Kurt Capewell has been named at centre in the Queensland Maroons squad to contest State of Origin II at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.

Maroons coach Paul Green will gamble on teenage rookie Reece Walsh at fullback, with Queensland making five changes to the side belted 50-6 in the series opener.

Walsh, 18, will become the youngest Origin debutant since Ben Ikin in 1995 when he runs out in the Maroons No.1 jersey made famous by the likes of Gary Belcher, Darren Lockyer, Billy Slater and Greg Inglis.

Cowboys front-rower Francis Molo will also make his debut while veteran hooker Andrew McCullough, Canberra prop Josh Papalii and Dragons utility Ben Hunt return to the side with Xavier Coates, Joe Ofahengaue, Jaydn Su’A all axed while Harry Grant (hamstring) and AJ Brimson (knee) were ruled out with injury.
