Welcome to our live blog of State of Origin III - The decider. Kickoff is expected to be around 10.23pm (going by games one and two).
The big news pre-game is that Robbie Farah won't play after failing to recover from his broken hand. Michael Ennis will start at hooker for NSW.
So just over 30 mins away from kickoff. The series so far...
Game 1 - 11-10 Queensland
Game 2 - 26-18 NSW
NSW has lost six of their last seven in Brisbane and have only ever won two deciders in Queensland.
Hello from the Herald newsroom! Who is everyone backing? Hard to go past the Maroons in front of a packed Suncorp Stadium but I am tipping the Blues to get the upset win on the back of their monster forward pack.
Stats go against my call however - NSW have lost the last five deciders and have not won game three with the series at 1-1 since 2005.
Tough week for Cam Smith following the Alex McKinnon 60 Minutes piece. Tonight he equals the record of Darren Lockyer with 36 Origin matches. Justin Hodges will play his 24th and last Origin game after a long career dating back to 2002.
Queensland of course have no Billy Slater but Cooper Cronk returns.
Josh Papalii replaces an injured Josh McGuire and Michael Morgan was retained on the bench in favour of Daly Cherry-Evans.
This will be the 51st Origin match played at Suncorp Stadium/Lang Park with the record at the ground currently standing at 31 wins for Queensland, 18 for the Blues with one draw in Game Three, 1999.
The players are going through their final stretches, this may actually start at 10.15pm as it's meant to. That would be an Origin first.
The Queensland team is:
1. Greg Inglis, 2. Darius Boyd, 3. Will Chambers, 4. Justin Hodges, 5. Dane Gagai, 6. Johnathan Thurston, 7. Cooper Cronk, 8. Matt Scott, 9. Cameron Smith (c) 10. Nate Myles, 11. Aidan Guerra, 12. Sam Thaiday, 13. Corey Parker
Interchange: 14. Michael Morgan, 15. Josh Papalii, 16. Matt Gillett, 17. Jacob Lillyman
The NSW team is:
1. Josh Dugan, 2. Will Hopoate, 3. Michael Jennings, 4. Josh Morris, 5. Brett Morris, 6. Mitchell Pearce, 7. Trent Hodkinson, 8. James Tamou, 9. Michael Ennis, 10. Aaron Woods, 11. Beau Scott, 12. Ryan Hoffman, 13. Paul Gallen
Interchange: 14. Trent Merrin, 15. Boyd Cordner 16. David Klemmer, 17. Josh Jackson
Channel 9 go with Rage Against The Machine's Killing In The Name as the background music as they go through the NSW team. No idea what the meaning is there. The song did come out in 1991 - Queensland won the decider that year 14-12 at Lang Park thanks to a Mal Meninga sideline conversion.
That image just looks wrong.
Both teams getting ready to enter the field. Not far away now.
In case you're wondering, in the Ashes England have won the toss and are batting first. What a day of sport!
....and the crowd boooos.
Queensland are making them wait as the crowd gives it to them.
Here comes Cam Smith and the Maroons.
Now it's Advance Australia Fair.
The ground is girt by Queenslanders singing it loud.
Parker is driven down to the ground in the third tackle and early biff
A mistake by Hodges, Ennis looks to strip the back but it's called a knock-on.
Early chance for NSW inside the Queensland 40.
Gallen runs the ball towards the 20. 3rd tackle.
Last tackle and Mitchell Pearce kicks for the corner. A nice take by Dane Gagai but he then spills the ball on impact with the ground. NSW scrum 10m out.
Gallen gets 5m short of the try line. Blues going close and then get an early penalty. Nate Myles called for holding the man down and they'll take the two points.
Trent Hodkinson lines it up and converts. NSW 2-0.
So NSW on the board first. And they have the ball again Hoffman then Gallen take it over their own 20m.
Ennis kicks on the last but Inglis catches it on the full and then Queensland get a penalty early in the set.
