REPORTS: Maroons Camp In Injury Crisis With Dane Gagai & Ben Hunt In Doubt For Origin Game I AAP

The Maroons camp is reportedly in injury crisis this morning with multiple sources reporting that there are questions over whether Dane Gagai and Ben Hunt will play Origin I.

Just moments ago, Dane Gagai sustained a compound fracture in his finger 30 minutes into the closed training session, with the Courier Mail quoting sources as saying there was blood streaming from his finger.

Also, Ben Hunt was spotted training at this morning's Captain's Run and Fox Sports reported that he looked "laboured in his stride" and may have to pass a fitness test later today.

With Billy Slater yesterday pulling out with a hamstring injury, it means a massive reshuffle is required for coach Kevvy Walters and a possible State of Origin debut for Kalyn Ponga.

The Knights rookie was widely tipped to step into Slater's admittedly large shoes but those rumours were shot down this morning with reports that Anthony Milford would be on the bench.

With the Queensland side rocked by a nightmare build-up to Game I, though, Ponga may very well be playing in front of 85,000 fans at the MCG tomorrow night.

More to come.
