So 7 players in the 18 man squad. What's the most we've had for an origin game?

An all Storm Maroon spine. I don't even think the Broncos can claim to have had a 1, 6, 7 and 9 turn up in the same Origin game.

I could be wrong and have to look at the teams over the years but considering Gary belcher was first choice fullback in the 80s before Julian oneill came along and steve walters didn't come along until the early 90s (taking his brother's spot) I don't think there was. Might ask david Middleton on twitter.

That's assuming that they run out that way too. I can see a swap with Munster going to centre at kick off.

I can see them pulling a sneaky

Would be funny if they did something crazy like Munster at 1 Morgan 6 and Billy centre will never happen but it would be funny

Slater has injured an ankle. I trust he is all okay, especially for upcoming Storm games.

So Kaufusi and Finucane have been called into their respective camps as cover, that makes 8 involved.

How does Smith nail them from the sideline in Origin (and wrong side for a leftie) and miss far easier shots for Storm games? The greater the pressure the greater the man.
