Valentine Holmes' last game at Suncorp Stadium was in 2013 in front of a few thousand people; Cameron Munster has never played before less than 40,000 in four visits to the venue.

It has been the home ground for Origin debutant Ben Hunt and second‑gamer Jarrod Wallace but Queensland coach Kevin Walters believes that the headstrong youth will be his side's trump card in tonight's decider.

The Maroons have not lost a Game Three decider since New South Wales won a third straight series in 2005 but this is a far different looking team than those which have triumphed in the six times the series has gone the distance since.

Seven members of the 17 will make their Origin debut in 2017 with Munster and Hunt to debut in the most intense atmosphere the game has to offer.

The Maroons will host the Blues in the State of Origin decider at 10 tonight.
