Penrith fullback Rhys Wesser is delighted by his late call-up to the Queensland team and says he has no concerns about playing out of position in next week's State Of Origin decider in Melbourne.
Wesser was added to the Maroons line up on the wing last night when Justin Hodges was forced out through injury. Wesser will play on the wing rather than his regular position of fullback but says he is just happy to be picked anywhere.
The Queensland and New South Wales teams both flew into Melbourne today to begin preparations for the July 5 encounter at Telstra Dome. Queensland coach Mal Meninga says he hopes the Maroons will enjoy the majority of support from the sellout crowd in Melbourne.
