Maroons update


Test prop Petero Civoniceva won't travel with his Queensland State of Origin rugby league teammates to Melbourne today due to illness. Civoniceva will remain in Brisbane but is expected to join the rest of the Maroons squad tomorrow.

Queensland has already lost centre Justin Hodges for next Wednesday night's series decider in Melbourne due to a hamstring injury. Penrith's Rhys Wesser has been drafted into the Queensland team and will play on the wing with Brent Tate switched to the centres.

Backrower Tonie Carroll still has to pass tomorrow's team medical before being cleared to play after being concussed at the weekend.
