Hegarty gets late call up

Rooster Shannon Hegarty has won a belated call-up to Queensland's Origin team following the almost comical withdrawal of first choice winger Robbie O'Davis today.

O'Davis was named in the starting side this morning but was ruled out after informing selectors he was booked in for knee surgery.

Selectors and coach Wayne Bennett discussed the problem and decided on Hegarty over Canberra's Clinton Schifcofske.
