The squad will be added to every Sunday as further teams are eliminated from the NRL finals series and all players who are selected will be permitted to temporarily leave the NRL bubble introduced this season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The players will be required to maintain a level of fitness before re-entering the bubble again for the start of the NSW Origin camp on 19 October.
The opening game of the State of Origin series will be played at Adelaide Oval on 4 November, Game Two will be at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on 11 November and Game Three will be at Suncorp Stadium on 18 November.
