Tom Gilbert will debut for Queensland in the State of Origin decider as Billy Slater resisted making sweeping changes for the Brisbane clash.

With experienced second-rower Felise Kaufusi unavailable due to family reasons, Maroons selectors have called in North Queensland forward.

Gilbert’s Cowboys teammate Jordan McLean will make his debut for New South Wales with Jack Wighton named on the bench and Payne Haas missing out due to injury.

Haas, who has been battling a recurring AC joint issue all season, played in the Broncos’ 40-26 defeat to the Cowboys on Saturday.
