Knights Star Named In QLD Origin Side

Knights star Dane Gagai has been named at wing in the Queensland State of Origin side. 

Meantime Billy Slater's origin career may be over with the veteran fullback overlooked for next week's series opener.

Maroons selectors have snubbed Slater, again handing incumbent Darius Boyd the No.1 Queensland jersey Origin I at Suncorp Stadium on May 31.

Champion playmaker Johnathan Thurston has been named as 18th man with coach Kevin Walters earlier conceding he was highly unlikely to be fit to play due to a shoulder injury.

Brisbane's Anthony Milford has been named to debut at five-eighth in place of Thurston.
