Maroons forced into change for Origin II

QUEENSLAND has been forced to make one change for game two of Origin at Suncorp Stadium with Nate Myles replaced by Warriors forward Jacob Lillyman.

Myles has been ruled out with a knee injury suffered during Manly’s loss to Penrith at Brookvale Oval yesterday afternoon.

"He had some scans earlier today and those scans showed some damage," Queensland coach Kevin Walters told QRL.com.au.

"Our doctor was of the belief that Nate won’t be fit enough to take the field on Wednesday week, which is very sad news for Nate and the Queensland team. But it opens up an opportunity for Jacob to come in from the New Zealand team.

"He was 18th man in Game One and now he gets his opportunity to throw on that Maroons jumper and do it proud."
