Queensland selectors set to make shock call for Origin 3

Queensland selectors set to make shock call for Origin 3

In their place, the Maroons have announced that Ben Hunt will cap off a meteoric rise through the ranks by making his Origin debut, getting the nod ahead of Daly Cherry-Evans.

Queensland has snubbed Daly Cherry-Evans and handed a State of Origin debut to recently out-of-favour halfback Ben Hunt for July 12's series decider at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

Walters - who is also without Darius Boyd - and the Maroons have turned to Brisbane Broncos half-back Hunt and fellow debutant Cameron Munster following the 18-16 game-two victory.

"Ben Hunt's played in a grand final, he's played some great games for the Broncos", Walters said.

The selection has come as a surprise after Hunt was dropped to play with the Ipswich Jets just a few weeks ago by Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett. I think if DCE was playing for us then he would have to be in the starting 13. It's probably better that we talk to our players first and see where we go to from there.

The 22-year-old produced a man-of-the-match display to lead the Storm to a rampant 42-12 win over the Broncos last week.

"He was disappointed (at missing selection) but he was most disappointed with the media and what was a pretty personal attack on him", he said.

Thurston's Origin career is now over and Walters hinted that Cherry-Evans could be his long-term replacement from as early as next year.

Walters has confirmed Hunt will start from the interchange bench, while Munster is expected to compete alongside Michael Morgan for Thurston's number six jersey, although he could also be named to start in the centers to replace Boyd. "Hogwash" was the word I used this morning about him not fitting into the Maroons' set-up.
