Storm forward Felise Kaufusi could miss the opening State of Origin match for Queensland after being charged with tripping.

Kaufusi has been handed a grade-one offence for a 74th-minute incident involving Broncos hooker Jake Turpin.

Due to two previous non-similar offences in the past two years, he will miss one game irrespective of whether he submits an early guilty plea or unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the judiciary.

Hopefully a big game from Murray Taulagi tonight as a bit of a smokey to nab a centre spot.

Queensland predicament at five-eight is so dire they may name Cameron Munster and going to give him until the 11th hour to get healthy.

Andrew Johns has said that Corey Norman should be named if Munster is no good. The problem for Queensland is that other options are pretty lame. Ben Hunt is not a five eight and Kalyn Ponga has barely played any football. Never mind playing five eight in a state of origin which means it could be Norman by default.

Johns has also suggested it AJ Brimson who should start at fullback. I agree with him but I still think Queensland will name Ponga (If he's healthy).

If Felise Kaufusi is suspended, Kurt Capewell and Jaydn Su'A are the main contenders to replace him in the second row its been reported.

I’d honestly go Walker or Walsh over Norman.

could be another 5 injuries and feldt will still be named a reserve. Will be shame when he retires without a single maroon cap and brenko lee and phillip sami have several

This squad was confirmed but it wasn't organised into a team list. I'm sure Green is just waiting for the results of medicals and I suspect there will be some late changes.

I must be the only one but I’d rather Brimson over Ponga and it’s not close

How does Su’A make the side! He’s in terrible form

Its been confirmed that Kalyn Ponga has been ruled out for state of origin 1. But it may not be Aj Brimson going to fullback as there is the possibility of moving Valentine Holmes to fullback with Kyle Feldt coming into the side on the wing which I think would be a mistake,

Brimson is under an injury cloud with his knee. I think he would be the better choice as origin fullback as well though, even if Ponga was fit.
