Slater Slots Tongan Enforcer Into ORIGIN II



Billy Slater has made two changes to his Maroons side that thumped NSW in ORIGIN 1, recalling two veterans.

Despite his starring role after coming from the bench in the early stages of the series opener, Selwyn Cobbo has been
left out of the 17 for ORIGIN II.

Eels back-rower J’Maine Hopgood is the other player to miss out, with Slater revealing the Eels gun had injured his back playing for his Club.

Felise Kaufusi starts off the bench for the MCG clash, with Kurt Capewell named to replace Cobbo in a more traditional utility role, providing forward cover, while also able to play Centre.
