Costigan out, Carlaw in

Rugged forward Neville Costigan has been ruled out of tonight's third State of Origin match with a broken hand.

Overnight x-rays revealed Costigan had suffered a butterfly fracture to his left hand in a training accident at Suncorp Stadium last night. Brisbane forward Dane Carlaw, who has played 12 Origins, comes onto the Queensland bench with officials chasing an 18th man as their emergency player.

Some thought was given to injecting Costigan's hand but it was too swollen when he woke up this morning.
