Origin update - Inglis out, Clark to ref

Melbourne star Greg Inglis will miss the second State of Origin match after being ruled out with stress fractures in his back. Inglis was yesterday selected on the wing for Queensland when it attempts to level the series at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday week.

But his NRL club says he will be unavailable and will not be able to play for 2-4 weeks.

Steve Clark has been appointed as referee for the second State of Origin match between NSW and Queensland at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane next Wednesday.

Clark replaces fellow whistleblower Sean Hampstead, who controlled the opening game of the series. Hampstead will be the stand-by referee for the game. Rod Lawrence and Russell Turner have been appointed as touch judges, with Graeme West the video referee.

It will be Clarke's fourth time in control of an Origin match.
