NRL 2019: Maroons & # 39; s legendary team for Origin I, State of Origin, Queensland, Ben Hunt, Kevin Walters, Michael Morgan



Maroons legend Billy Moore has made a number of stars play brightly in Queens before the opening of the Origin series, and has begged coach Kevin Walters to use it to his advantage.

One could argue that players who are not in position obstruct the cohesion of the side.

However, Moore believes that the Maroons can use it tactically to their advantage.

"Don't be surprised if you see a bit of fluidity and swapping positions in those ridges," Moore said Foxsports.com.au.

"Morgan and Munster could change roles fairly easily and Kalyn Ponga could also end up in different positions in and around that backbone area.

"If you have versatile players, it can make you an unpredictable and dangerous soccer team."

Moore has supported Dragons & halfback Ben Hunt with hooker, Michael Morgan in the middle, Josh McGuire with prop and Anthony Milford as the bank's utility in his side for the opener of the June 5 series.

"Given the way I have selected my forward pack and bank players, I think we will need an X factor from the bank," said Moore.

"There is no one better to play that X-factor role than Milford. He has done it before at the Origin level.

"I know he fought in the beginning of the season, but he is starting to find a form and I think he would take on the challenge for the Maroons.

"Kevvie (Walters) can turn him on at the end of every half to work his magic when the attackers in and around the ruck begin to tire."

One of the most controversial selections prior to the series is who starts in the all-important No.9 jersey.

Injuries to Jake Friend and incumbent Andrew McCullough have reduced the options to Hunt and Jake Granville.

The Cowboys rake has the advantage of playing a hooker at club level every week, but Moore believes Hunt is the man to play the Maroons' role – despite playing less than 10 games in the second half.

"I have Hunt, starting with the whore in my team, but don't be surprised if he's called at No.9 and comes off the bench in Kevvie's team," Moore said.

"I wouldn't be surprised if Dylan Napa in the front row starts with Josh McGuire shifting to hooker to absorb the pressure in the opening stages.

"Then Hunt will get off the couch after 20 minutes and go to work."

Speculation refuses to go away, that Cameron Smith will make a return to the Origin arena, despite Walters' refusals.

Smith's impact on the side would be huge, but Moore says the constant speculation doesn't do the team any good.

"If Cameron Smith decides to make a comeback, he has the golden ticket to do what he wants," Moore said.

"I would make him a hooker, captain and goal kicker and Hunt would shift to the utility function of the bank.

"But I don't want to talk about him because it's a waste of energy and we have to plan for the worst and hope for the best."

But instead of Smith, who leads the team?

Manly halfback Daly Cherry-Evans is considered the favorite, but Moore has only one person in mind for the honor of hiring his beloved Maroons.

"Give Munster the & # 39; C & # 39; next to his name, & # 39; said Moore.

"Some special players have just received it and I know he will be a good captain."
