Maguire makes two changes for Origin decider


Westpac NSW Blues coach Michael Maguire has made two changes to his line-up for the Game Three decider of the Ampol State of Origin series at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Wednesday 17 July.

Newcastle Knights centre Bradman Best, who made his Origin debut in Game Three last year, replaces the injured Latrell Mitchell, while Warriors forward Mitchell Barnett is set to make his debut. 

Maguire will finalise his 20-man squad, including three emergencies, by Monday (8 July), when the team comes into camp in Sydney.

The squad will divide their time between the Fairmont Resort in the Blue Mountains and the Sofitel Brisbane Central in Brisbane to prepare for the must-win game.
